Eating gluten free means discovering and re-discovering new tastes and recipes. As a Southern Italian, polenta isn’t part of my food culture and I have never known how to cook it, despite being a specialty of the North of Italy. In my place, we used to call Northern Italians “polentoni” (which means that they eat polenta all the time) and they use to call us “terroni” (which means peasant, as most of Southern Italians used to farm). The two words are quite offensive though, as there has always been a kind of stupid rivalry between North and South of Italy so, please, don’t call an Italian “polentone” or “terrone” because you might offend them!
Well, I am finally happy to re-discover polenta, and use it in my gluten free diet 🙂
