Table 8's Sweet Corn Soup Recipe

It's winter time and thus soup season. Even though our winter lasted about 3 days, it's still a great excuse to cozy up with a bowl of warm, hearty goodness. The sweet corn soup at Table 8 offers an elegant option for the warm food craving. Not as heavy as it sounds, due to a generous slug of white wine, the ethereal yellow broth balances the sweetness of the corn with the savory addition of leeks and celery. This is one of Table 8's seasonal offerings so it may not be around for long.
6 onions. 3 leeks, 6 celery stalks, 15 cloves garlic, bottle white wine, 6 quarts corn stock, 4 quarts heavy cream, 10 quarts of corn, salt and pepper to taste
