POLENTA

There are almost as many ways to make polenta as there are ways to make beans. The wonderful chef Judy Rogers included a tasty recipe in The Zuni Café Cookbook, W.W. Norton and Company, 2002. Here is my recipe for polenta. I find this the easiest way to make polenta because it doesn’t require an inordinate amount of stirring. You will need a large saucepan and a double-boiler with at least a six cup capacity.   CLICK HERE FOR THE ENTIRE ARTICLE

CORNMEAL AND LEMON TORTE

I love the flavor of corn as well as lemon so this was something I really wanted to figure out. A small wedge of this torte is a great finish for many dinners.  I was inspired by a recipe from Sunset magazine that I came across quite a few years ago. I wanted to make something with that flavor profile but with a stronger lemon flavor. I also added some minced rosemary to give it a bit of a bite. You could use some minced lemon balm instead of or in addition to the rosemary.  CLICK HERE FOR THE ENTIRE RECIPE
