Polenta is endlessly versatile. Here, it is combined with onion and chilli for a heat hit.
One of the ways to serve polenta is to make it quite stiff, let it set, and then grill slices of it. Very delicious.
A great staple, polenta is easy to cook these days and very delicious. Infinitely variable.
Polenta, or cornmeal, is made from ground maize. It has a rich yellow colour and a slightly sweet taste.
Once I had a lovely older Italian man as a hairdresser. He was amazing. As we molded my hair into some shape, we discussed cooking, fashion and food. Sometimes with a glass of champagne. He gave me this great polenta recipe.
