Product Description

The polenta recipe in my book "Royal Recipes From The Castle of the Cookie Queen" is delicious. But last summer my Mom and my sister, Maria and I ordered Polenta at a restaurant in Pittsburghıs South Side. It was different from mine - but delicious too. It was soft ... almost soupy. They served it for an appetizer. I decided to try coming up with my own version of this soft polenta. I finally did it and gave the recipe a test run the other night for a dinner with friends and relatives. It was given a Four Star rating. While my original polenta recipe is quite easy to prepare, this one is even easier.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

3/4 teaspoon salt

White pepper to taste

5 Tablespoons cornmeal

5 Tablespoons semolina

1/4 cup grated Fontina cheese

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation

* Combine 1 1/2 cups chicken stock and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream in a heavy saucepan and bring to a simmer.

*Add 3/4 teaspoon salt and white pepper to taste.

*Measure out the 5 Tablespoons of cornmeal and 5 Tablespoons of semolina, then whisking all the while (and this is important as if you donıt whisk you ill get lumps) add the cornmeal and semolina.

*Cook over very low heat, whisking regularly, until the grains are soft, about 8 minutes.

* Whisk in 1/4 cup Fontina cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

* Serve immediately.

To make firm polenta, increase the amounts of cornmeal and semolina each to 1/2 cup. It will not take longer to cook.
