Polenta is above all a country dish. In the old-fashioned houses, lacking in all "modem comforts," you will see it being cooked in a battered copper pan, on the hearth of an open fire or on the comer of an old wood burning stove.

What You Need:
  • 1 pint salted water
  • 1˝ oz butter
  • 8 oz maize flour
  • 1˝ oz grated cheese

  • How To Cook:
    1. Bring the water to the boil and pour the maize flour in, mixing with a wooden spoon.

    2. Stirring continuously, cook for 30 minutes.

    3. When the mass comes away from the sides of the pan, blend in the butter and the grated cheese.

    4. Turn the mixture out on to a dish which has been rinsed in cold water. (In the Ticino a special round wicker dish or a wooden plank is used.)

    5. Serve sliced.

        This Polenta may be served with tomato sauce, or it may be used as accompaniment to a stew or roast.
    To Serve: 2 - 4
