Corn is definitely another definitive flavor of summer. Fresh sweet corn is one of the best simple food pleasures out there.

Tell him to stop spitting on his plates. it is bad manners.

Seriously though I remember looking at that consomme specifically and being able to picture exactly what that must taste like. It was on of the most delicious things I have ever not tasted.
