Pop Domonic was a foodie, probably before that term even existed. He knew exactly what he liked and wanted. From the amount of salt on his tomato salad to which part of the baguette he’d dip in the tomato juice to when spaghetti and meatballs should be served.
His love of corn on the cob in the summer though was contagious. Every Sunday various family members would stop at different farm stands to pick up some bright yellow corn and some white corn. It was then a competition.
Which corn had the smallest kernels? Which corn was the most tender? And the final vote…what did it rank on a 1 to 10 scale? Only experienced judges were allowed to participate.
Farm stands have changed. The members around the table differ each week. Decades have come and gone but this summer, family tradition continues.
