Recipe: Elizabeth Karmel's White Corn Pudding

White Corn Pudding In this custardy corn pudding from Elizabeth Karmel of New York's Hill Country, puréed sweet corn is spiked with spices and thickened with cheeses to make a sinfully rich side that will stand its ground next to any bite of brawny barbecue. Chef Karmel prefers frozen shoepeg corn, a mild cultivar that's named after the tiny wooden pegs that were once used to attach shoe soles to uppers. If you can't find it, any corn in your local frozen-food aisle will work fine. Get the recipe here, or try the dish at Saturday's Chefs & Champagne® New York.

Recipe: Kulfi Ice Pops

  kulfi We've been keeping our cool with these saffron, cardamom, and pistachio–laced kulfi popsicles from Rati Lohtia of New York's Miette Culinary Studio.
