Jill Melton describes the flavor experience of this recipe as follows — “The silky roasted tomatoes and salty feta play off the sweet corn and mingle happily in this creamy soup.” We love how easily the ingredients can be purchased at our market, and we find the flavors to be the perfect inspiration for our upcoming Corn-Tomato Recipe Competition at our 2nd Annual Community Farm Day, Saturday, July 16th, 2016.
