Ingredients

  • 2 cups chicken stock with a glass of white wine, wine optional
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup polenta (corn grits)
  • 1/2 cup grated Vermont Dandy cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • Olive oil, for greasing bowl

Directions

Place the chicken stock, water and cream into a heavy saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the polenta. Simmer gently on a low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the cheese before serving and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Pour the polenta into deep serving bowl, lightly coated in olive oil to prevent sticking. Let the polenta set up for 10 minutes, or if you prefer, you can serve it immediately.
