Cooking with corn.

In about 90 minutes I’ll take the stage at the Automattic Grand Meetup. Each year we are tasked with sharing a 4-minute story (aka Flash Talk) in front of our colleagues. Some people talk hobbies, others talk work – regardless it’s a fun (though sometimes nerve-racking for the presenter) experience that allows us to learn something new that’s not necessarily aligned with our job responsibilities.

This year I am sharing a little background on myself which leads into my experience as a detasseler in Central Illinois over 20 years ago. For those that don’t know much about detasseling, it’s all about corn.

In my presentation, I promised folks a few good recipes involving this tasty ol’ American treat. So, without further ado…
