  • Summary

    In his "A Tuscan Son" menu, Tony Oltranti serves Polenta with Franklin's Teleme as a smooth, soft base for his roast chicken. This recipe takes polenta in a different direction—cooked with sage, rosemary, and Parmigiano-Reggiano, the polenta is then cooled, cut into sticks, and broiled until the outer edges of the "fries" are golden and crisp, a fine contrast to the creamy interior. Serve them with a fried egg and a salad for a vegetarian lunch, or pair them with something saucy like chicken fricassee.

    Ingredients

    • Olive oil for brushing
    • 3 1/4 cups cold water
    • 1 cup polenta (not quick-cooking)
    • 1 teaspoon chopped sage
    • 1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
    • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits
