Surf and Turf?

At the beginning of August we had polenta cakes, risoni with vegetables and strawberry tiramisu for dessert. Also, wet feet.

Actually, we planned to eat outside on the terrace because of the nice weather, but there was already a small pool set up. Also not bad, so we could at least cool our feet a bit in the water.

Polenta cakes

10 servings

  • Salt
  • 500 g polenta
  • 250 g grated pecorino
  • 2½ tablespoons butter
  • 10 tomatoes
  • Pepper from the mill
  • 2½ handfuls of arugula (we replaced it with wild herb salad)

Cook the polenta according to instructions until it is thick enough to stick a spoon inserted into it. Then stir in about 150 g of pecorino and the butter and season the polenta with salt.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the polenta about 1.5 cm thick on it. Allow to cool and set. Then cut out circles with a cookie cutter (about 8 cm in diameter, we used a glass). If the polenta sticks to the glass, you can dip the glass briefly in water before cutting it out. Place on a platter and sprinkle with the remaining pecorino.

Wash the tomatoes, quarter them, scrape out the seeds, remove the stalk and dice the flesh. Season with salt and pepper. Wash the arugula, sort and spin dry. Arrange the tomatoes with the arugula on the talers and serve.
