iStock 000003332943XSmall Trending on Recent OpenTable Restaurant Reviews: Sweet CornSweet corn is synonymous with summer. A variety of maize that has a high sugar content, sweet corn can be found with yellow, white, or bicolor kernels. It is an ingredient whose uses are so varied that it calls to mind Bubba Blue’s lengthy ode to shrimp dishes. Sweet corn is no longer relegated to savory dishes on menus. Sure, you’ll find it starring in soups, pastas, salads, tamales, tartlets, and more, but it is also popular in desserts! A favorite of home gardeners and farmers market shoppers, sweet corn is a signal that the best days of the season have arrived. Find out what OpenTable diners are saying about this very yummy veggie.
