TARAGNA POLENTA FLOUR: COOKING INTRUCTIONS

Taragna polenta is one of the quickest and easiest recipes there is. Here is how to prepare 500 g of delicious polenta. Prepare a copper pot and bring 2 litres of salted water to the boil. As soon as the water comes to the boil, gradually pour the flour into the water and stir for 3 minutes, thus avoiding the formation of lumps. Leave the taragna polenta to cook for at least one and a half hours, stirring frequently. Then add cubes of soft cheese (250 grams of Branzi or Bitto) plus 50 grams of butter. Allow the cheese and the butter to melt and stir to mix well.

TARAGNA POLENTA RECIPE: ALL THE POSSIBILITIES

Polenta is one of the bases of Italian cuisine, used mostly in the north of the Lombardy region, in the Valtellina area and in the province of Bergamo and Brescia. The name Taragna comes from the term "tarél", a word in dialect for the traditional wooden instrument used to stir polenta as it is cooked in a copper pot.

Here at Agrigal, taragna polenta is not taragna polenta without cheese. The blend of corn and buckwheat flour is a perfect match for a wide range of cheeses, including mild Storico Ribelle Slow Food cheese. Storico Ribelle cheese is a type of classic Bitto cheese, which represents one of the oldest traditions of Lombardy cheese making. Produced in the valleys of the province of Sondrio, classic Bitto served with polenta brings out all its intense taste, creating an explosion of unique and irresistible flavour.
