|Food Network Chef Tyler Florence cooks for the crowd at Macy's Lenox Square.|
Nuggets of cooking wisdom and philosophy from Food Network chef Tyler Florence from his recent cooking demonstration at Macy's Lenox Square:
"When I cook, I like to make things as pure and as clean as possible. I want a potato to taste like a potato."
And for corn to taste like corn - this is his method for cooking fresh corn. I'm sorry to post this just as the summer corn is ending, but keep it in mind for future ears.
It's a very simple recipe, just roast corn in the husk, piled up on a baking sheet in a 350 degree oven until your kitchen smells like warm corn. The silks and husk enhance the corn flavor and steam the kernels in their own packages.
