Mise en place
Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces. Shuck the corn; slice the kernels off the cob. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Strip the kale leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves and place in a large bowl, discarding the stems. Toss the kale with a drizzle of oil and season with S&P; using your hands, massage the kale, 1 to 2 minutes, until softened. Mince the garlic. Thinly slice the chives. Cut the focaccia into bite-size pieces.

Start the chowder
In a large pot, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Add the flour and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until a paste forms. Add the garlic and corn. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until beginning to soften; season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P. Add the milk, demi-glace, ⅓ of the tomatoes and 1 ½ cups water (double for 4 portions). Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook, 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly reduced. Season with S&P.

Finish the chowder
To the pot of chowder, add the potatoes and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, 10 to 14 minutes, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork and the chowder has thickened.

Make the croutons
While the chowder cooks, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the focaccia to the pan in a single, even layer; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Toast, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, until golden brown (if at any point the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of oil). Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel and set aside.
