This is How Every Continent Serves Corn on the Cob


A versatile and hardy plant, corn can be found on every continent except Antarctica (hmph). The golden kernels offer endless possibilities, from a simple grilled treat doused in lemon and pepper to cheesecake popcorn.

This time around, this tasty graphic decided to take things through the lens of continental food porn and combined 6 different recipes onto one corn on the cob. The visual below takes a playful approach to beloved ingredients — Sriracha, Greek yogurt, goat cheese etc. — and offers quick, slathery spreads for grilled corn. Peek the refreshing lime-avocado crema and quesco fresco, then dive deep into that recipe for maple bourbon butter folded with crumbled bacon. We know you’ve been eyeing that the entire time.

If you’re feeling particularly lazy, however, you can always skip the first step and shamelessly nuke ’em:

Obi Wan Cornobi: Lightsaber + Corn On The Cob

Shed Simove is a self proclaimed “Ideas Man,” a serial entrepreneur who’s garnered the prestige of several awards and accolades in response to his work, all of which are readily viewable on his website. In his FOODBEAST coverage debut, Shed has created the CORNOBI, a corn holder fashioned after a lightsaber handle.

His inspiration behind the Star Wars themed corn holder was to come up for a way to get kids to eat healthier. The tagline for the product:

“The fork is strong in this one” …

Shed is currently seeking partners that work in the food utensil and corn farming industries to help him bring this idea to life on a more massive scale. He may want to touch base with LucasFilm, Ltd., especially if he wants to refer to it as a Corn Lightsaber, which is arguably more badass than Cornobi.


Corn Kerneler: Corn…Off the Cob?

Do you enjoy fresh corn, but don’t want the mess involved with eating straight from the cob*?  With the Corn Kerneler, you place the bagel-shaped machine on the narrow end of the cob and push it straight down to remove the kernels with ease.
