Use high quality, organic corn (the juiciest stuff always comes from your local farmer’s market!) and have fun jazzing it up with some of my garnish ideas below. The soup can be served hot or cold, and with pieces of a rotisserie chicken on top, makes a perfect little dinner.
This soup is an excellent party dish because it’s show-stoppingly beautiful, it comes together in a flash, and it can be made ahead. Serve it hot or cold.
In the winter months, soup is always a favorite—you can put everything in the pot and (almost) forget about it. In 2012, my sister and I travelled to a small village in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where we learned to make one of my favorite soups: Tom Kha Gai.
