  1. Wrap potato cubes in cling film and microwave for 30 seconds. Set aside.
  2. In a frying pan, cook bacon over medium heat until heated through and add onions. Cook and stir until onions are translucent. Stir in crab and parsley. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large stock pot over low heat. Mix in flour until mixture becomes creamy and takes on a egg shell colour. Continue to cook for a few more minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in wine. Dissolve chicken stock cube in milk; when the flour mixture is crumbly, slowly whisk in the milk. Mix well in order to eliminate all lumps.
  4. When the mixture is creamy and hot, stir in bacon mixture, potatoes and corn. Season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 10 minutes.
