Corn soup – Bar Agricole

Corn soup Bar Agricole

Large bowl of warm corn soup with aleppo pepper, creme fraiche, and chopped serpolette.  $14
Bar Agricole, San Francisco

This soup was absolutely heavenly!  The flavors were great and the texture was awesome.  The corn was coarsely pureed so you could still feel pieces of kernel in your mouth.  The garnishes looked great against the soft yellow color of the corn soup.  I didn’t get much of a kick from the crushed and ground aleppo flakes and the serpolette was completely lost flavor-wise.  It didn’t matter though, the soup was tasty enough to stand on its own.  The portion was a generous one, which was great since everyone at the table wanted to taste it!
 
Serpolette (Thymus serphyllum), more commonly spelled “serpolet”, is a wild thyme.  I learned something new, haha!
