Description: Originally a humble peasant dish, polenta is now showing up on the best restaurant menus in the country -- and plenty of home cooks are following the lead. Like potatoes, rice, and pasta, polenta is a canvas for the creativity of the cook, as versatile as your imagination -- perfect for sweet and savory dishes alike. Whether grilled as a hearty side dish, baked into an inspired lasagne, or studded with golden raisins and drizzled with warm maple syrup, polenta makes every meal memorable.
Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs, Polenta features more than forty recipes for this adaptable, satisfying staple. Embellish a simple meal with a bowl of creamy polenta redolent of garlic and Parmesan cheese. Treat your palate to Sage Polenta Gnocchi or Pan-fried Trout with Crunchy Polenta Crust. Serve an elegant entree of Duck Breasts with Port Sauce and Wild Mushroom Polenta or indulge your sweet tooth with Wine-poached Pears on Spicy Polenta Croutes. With recipes for every occasion and valuable tips on making perfect polenta every time, this terrific volume is a glorious celebration of the golden grain of Italy.
