Assis Toi: A Feisty Succotash

First, a promise: I will try my best not to make corn-y puns in this post.

For the second episode of my summer series for CBC Radio, “Assis Toi”  invites listeners to Prince Edward Island, as Bedford resident Nancy Johnston takes us for a trip down memory lane as she talks about summer corn boils on the island.

But soon listeners are taken for a walk around my neighbourhood in Dartmouth and head to The Canteen. There I meet up with Feisty Chef Renée Lavallée, who whips up a beautiful summer succotash and gives great tips on how to use every last morsel of corn in your pantry.

Bon appetit!
