All Easy Recipes. Cook all that you can cook. Polenta
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.

  • 1 pint salted water
  • 1 oz butter

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

    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.
