THE RECIPE

Grilled Corn with Basil and Gorgonzola Cheese

Corn on the Cob Grows Up

Corn on the cob, normally paired with butter, has made some more sophisticated friends. After the corn comes off the heat, it’s rolled in a butter-Gorgonzola mixture. The cheese’s robust and (slightly) spicy kick plays with the charred flavor left from the grill. To finish everything off, shreds of fresh basil are sprinkled on top. Basil’s slightly sweet and peppery taste makes the dish fresh and summery, and its green leaves pop against the yellow corn. After trying this recipe, you might forget all about the hot dogs and let the corn steal the show!
