Crab Cakes with Buttermilk- Basil Dressing and Marinated Tomatoes and Corn adapted from Tyler Florence

  
         Crab Cakes are one of those dishes that are just about perfect just about anytime of year.  They’re a snap to make and you can have them cooked and kept warming in the warming drawer until you’re ready to serve your guests.   This wonderful recipe uses a lot of crab and not a lot of bread  which is key to a great crab cake.   This particular take caught our eye because it seemed like just the right thing to serve for one of our  lunches around the pool.   Its pedigree is very reassuring.  There’s not much that Tyler Florence doesn’t do perfectly and this is but one example. It’s from his late, lamented column in House Beautiful, “Tyler’s Kitchen”.  Tyler combines three summer favorites that are at their peak right now.  There’s fresh basil in the dressing.  And there are 3 varieties of tomatoes and sweet corn.   The corn is gorgeous cooked a way I’d never tried before and it was a revelation all by itself.

From a Visit to Baltimore, recipes for Maryland Crab Cakes with Basil Aioli and a Basil, Tomato and Potato Salad



About the only thing I miss about my last job is the travel. I really enjoy getting out of New York, seeing something different, learning something new.  So I was pleased when a recent assignment took me to Baltimore, Maryland, a city I’ve been to many times over the years.  What was new this time was that I stayed downtown, at a really beautiful hotel that’s been open such a short space of time, my cab driver had never even heard of it.  What wasn’t new was the chance to dig into some really good crab cakes and there’s no place better to do that than in Baltimore.
