Tomato Sweet Corn Quiche

Tomato Sweet Corn QuicheFor the third summer in a row, I’ve had the pleasure of being invited to a Tomato Party. The party kicks off with the hostess’s jewel-toned tomato-basil water, spiked with a bit of vodka, glistening with a drizzle of olive oil. It is the very essence of summer’s end, a fragrant reminder to hurry up and enjoy as many tomatoes as we can.Tomato Basil WaterTomato SorbetAnd so we do. Each guest brings a tomato-y treat, filling out a spectacular meal that includes salads, salsas, tarts, soups, Serious Jam, and this year even a divine tomato sorbet topped with a crispy-sweet tuile of dried tomato (made by the lovely Zoe Francois of Zoe Bakes, recipe here, hooray!) It was a glorious evening.

My contribution was a Tomato Sweet Corn Quiche. Inspired by my favorite panna cotta recipe, I steeped the cream for the quiche with sweet corn, extracting every lovely bit of corn sweetness that I could. Just try not to drink the whole of it, while the corn cream is still warm, I count it as one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted. If you resist, it makes a lovely quiche filling.Tomato Sweet Corn Quiche | Fresh TartI added grated raw milk cheddar to the pictured tart but I think the next time I make it, I’ll skip the cheese. I will also make the quiche in a pie plate, instead of a tart pan, so the custard is nice and thick. Did I mention how much I love that corn cream?
