Corn and blueberries are the Laverne and Shirley of summer produce. Two of the season’s most beloved and eagerly awaited ingredients are perpetual plate playmates, popping up in dishes both sweet and savory, morning through night. As both ingredients hit their summery stride, here’s a look at some don’t-you-dare-miss-them blueberry-corn dishes around Chicago.
Start your day off right with a hefty plate of corny blueberry pancakes at The Gage. It all starts out with blue corn pancakes, imbued with all the standard goodness such as milk, eggs, butter, love, etc. As sous chef Pete Coenan explains, the cornmeal gives the pancakes a nice texture and a bold corn flavor, not to mention a slightly purple-ish hue. The syrup is where the fruit comes in, and it hits in a big way. Vermont maple syrup is steeped with fresh blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and oranges, and when drizzled over the violet-y pancakes, it pops with more color than the entire roster of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And because why not, the pancakes are finished with a mixture of whipped cream and mascarpone, and sprinkled with some powdered sugar. Tada!
