Southern-Style Corn Chowder
This is the perfect soup to make in the late summer months when corn is at its prime and you can find fresh ears for sale at roadside stands and farmers' markets. Chef Emeril Lagasse fashioned this version after traditional Southern-style corn soup, because it pairs corn with one of his very best friends, bacon. Oh, baby, talk about a match made in heaven! If you can't find fresh ears of corn, you could substitute frozen, but the taste won't be quite the same.
