Recipe for Corn and Pepper Salad With Garlic Salsa
12 oz. fresh or frozen whole-kernel corn
1 green bell pepper, seeded
1 red bell pepper, seeded
1/2 cucumber, diced.
4 or 5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 green chili, seeded and chopped
5 tablespoons olive oil
5 tomatoes, skinned, seeded and roughly chopped
small bunch fresh cilantro
Put the corn in a pan. Cover with water and bring to a boil, then simmer for 2-3- mins. Drain, then cool and put in a bowl. Cut the peppers into small dice and add to the corn with the cucumber.
To make the salsa, put the garlic, vinegar, cumin, oregano, chili, and a little salt into a small blender or food processor. Blend until finely chopped. Add the oil and blend to mix. Add the tomatoes but only blend in short bursts, so they still look partly chopped. Stir into the salad with the cilantro. Serves 6-8

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
5 egg yolks
1 cup white sugar
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup half-and-half cream
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
1 orange peel
1/2 fluid ounce orange liqueur
2 ounces candied orange peel, grated
In a medium bowl, beat eggs and yolk. Beat in sugar until smooth. Set aside. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine cream, half-and-half, the vanilla bean and its scrapings, and the peel of one orange. Heat until bubbles form at edges of liquid, reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes. Remove orange peel. Beat hot cream into egg mixture, a little at a time, until all is incorporated. Stir in orange liqueur. Pour into 4 to 6 individual custard cups.
