Polenta is an Italian dish with a very long tradition. Ground from dried corn kernels, it is still popular throughout the country and now worldwide! Originally polenta originated from the northern regions of Italy such as Lombardy, Brescia, Piedmont, Veneto, Aosta, Friuli and Veneto.
It is very versatile because it can take on the flavor of its added ingredients, which can be as simple as its traditional partners, butter and cheese. Often porridge-style polenta is served topped with sauteed seasonal vegetables, meats and seafood. Or, the polenta can be poured into a sheet tray, cooled and cut into pieces, which can then be grilled, baked, or pan-fried. The possibilities are endless, and this traditional Polenta will ensure that the flavor is exceptional!
Preparation time is 7-8 minutes.
