    Title: Gwyneth Paltrow's Corn Vichyssoise
    Categories: Vegetables, Potatoes, Dairy, Citrus
    Yield: 4 servings

    2 tb Extra-virgin olive oil
    2 md Leeks; white & light-green
    - parts only, coarse chopped
    5 Ears shucked corn; kernels
    - cut from cobs, cobs
    - reserved
    1 c Coarse-chopped peeled potato
    4 c Good-quality vegetable stock
    Salt & fresh ground pepper
    1 tb Fresh lemon juice
    1/4 c Creme fraiche or sour cream
    1 tb Fine chopped fresh chives

    Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add
    leeks and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin
    to soften, about 5 minutes. Add corn kernels, reserved
    cobs, potato, and stock. Season lightly with salt and
    pepper. Increase heat to high and bring soup to a boil.
    Reduce heat to simmer, cover with lid slightly ajar, and
    cook until the vegetables are very soft, about 35

    Discard corn cobs; let soup cool slightly. Working in
    batches, purée soup in a blender until very smooth. Set
    a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl; strain,
    discarding solids. Chill soup until cold. If too thick,
    thin with water by 1/4-cupfuls. Stir in lemon juice, and
    season with salt and pepper. Spoon a dollop of crème
    fraîche atop each serving and sprinkle with chives.
