About the recipe

This corn pudding, from a popular restaurant in Atlanta's Inman Park neighborhood, is a luscious accompaniment to the menu's "Iron Skillet Fried Chicken."

Chef Jason Hill serves cubes of this baked corn puree instead of corn bread in his Southern-style restaurant, Wisteria. The origin is Mexican, he says, "but it could be a Southern dish, easily."
