Author Notes

The silky smooth texture of polenta , the crispy bacon , the sudden explosion of freshness of chards and corn, the pulsating intense salty flavor of gorgonzola. Ah.
This recipe can only be described as the best probably -to play it safe- soup I have EVER made. In the past I have often experimented with corn soups, but it always seemed to be something missing from the recipe. And just when despair comes the secret ingredient to save the recipe, beloved gkorgkotzola. Little angels in your mind will sing in every spoonful, I promise. Once you get all the material will again wait for you here, tell you how to make the soup will warm your being. —Despoina Kortes | In Whirl of Inspiration
