EMANUELE’S KITCHEN

Polenta al Gorgonzola

Piedmont is known for its wonderfully malodorous cheeses as well as ethereal white truffles, both of which you can sample on our Piedmont Vineyards & Lakes tour. When you don’t have any truffles, this simple dish will satisfy with its strong flavors and can stand up to a powerful piemontese wine.

Preparation

Bring the water to a simmer, slowly pouring in the cornmeal, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Cook and stir over a low flame for about 30 minutes. Butter an ovenproof baking dish. Layer the polenta and cheeses beginning with the polenta and ending with the cheese. Bake in a pre-heated hot oven (400° F, 205° C) for 15-20 minutes. Serves 4-6.

Splurge and drink a hearty Barolo, and you will soon be transported to the lofty heights of the castles of Piedmont. Buon appetito!
