Cheesey Polenta Pie

Serves 4-6
by Tenina Holder

You know I’m a West Australian Dairy Judge right? (And yes cheese companies, I can be bought with cheese!) So mention Gorgonzola and I’m there…go to Taleggio and I’m there with bells on. I of course love all cheeses, but the smelly soft ones seem to get me the most! So this recipe is a result of visiting my favorite Continental store and coming home with several wedges of cheese that I should not eat by myself…I was sharing the smelliness…hope you are glad about that. I served this with Saltimbocca lamb parcels from a gorgeous butcher in the same complex. I do not go there often. I also brought home chocolate and pistachio cannoli from the Italian bakery, also in the complex, which is why I do not go there often. End of story.
