How to Make Perfect Polenta

Plays: 5022

In this video, you’ll see how to make perfect polenta. It’s virtually foolproof. The simple key to lump-free polenta is whisking as you slowly add the polenta into the boiling water. Once you’ve stirred in the polenta, you don’t need to stand at the stove stirring constantly. Simply cover the pan, stirring occasionally until your polenta is wonderfully soft, creamy, and tender. Watch the video, then get Chef John’s recipe for Perfect Polenta. It's truly one of the world’s great comfort foods—and a sensational base for braised meats and stews, including Chef John’s impossibly tender Pork al Latte. Finish it off with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a little butter. So creamy and comforting, you’ll get po-lenty of compliments for this one! See more Chef John videos >>
