My mother's been craving polenta for weeks now. Not the instant kind or the prepackaged in a tube kind but the kind that needs to be stirred for 30 minutes. (you've got to love her) After 38 years of her giving me everything I want how could I not make her polenta for mother's day. Thank god for my husband who helped me with the stirring.
I found the perfect recipe on Food & Wine for Tuscan Pork Stew with Polenta. It's traditionally made with wild boar and we were lucky enough to get our hands on some. Although the ingredient list is long don't let that scare you. It's actually pretty easy to make and the end results are fabulous.
We ended our meal with a classic crème brulee topped with fresh strawberries.
Simple but delicious. My mom was very happy.
