Brown Butter Cornbread – Video Recipe

Video Recipe for Brown Butter Cornbread

The brown butter cornbread recipe in my book is one I come back to over and over again, whenever a bowl of vegetarian chili or black bean soup is on the menu. The brown butter flavor somehow amplifies the taste of the corn. I use an easy trick that is popular in modernist kitchens for …
