I have a question about the recipe "Pancetta and Cheese Grilled Polenta Wedges " from Cordelia. What Polenta do you use, instant or corn meal?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Nancy is a trusted home cook.
In practice, I'm not fussy...usually use whatever's available when shopping.
Most cornmeals give decent results and I don't find the polenta tastes much different, especially if you are going to be background/absorber of flavors for a highly spiced sauce.
On the other hand, if the polenta is to be served simply with butter and cheese or as a focus of the meal, a high quality stone ground cornmeal will give better results and be worth finding
should read: if you are going to use it as background...
I never use instant polenta.
