Step by step

Cover with cheese and flakes of butter

We have prepared this recipe using buckwheat, also known as ‘taragna’. If you want to follow the traditional recipe, use simple corn polenta instead, and take care to make it very soft whilst cooking. You can then add the cubes of cheese, so as to blend them in nicely, or cover your polenta with the cheese and butter at the end and blast under a grill, like a gratin. Fortunately, flavoured polenta is not a formal or rigid recipe, so you can use your imagination by adding any cheese you like, and the method that suits.
There is a recipe called ‘polenta alla carbonara’ which includes pork, pancetta and cheese. It is found especially in its area of origin, the mountain region of Catria and Nerone, in the province of Pesaro and Urbino.
