Anna: There’s something very calming about listening to two hours of Simon on Classic FM while blogging.
Peter: Yes, I’m learning all sorts of things I never knew, though you keep correcting the DJ so clearly you know more.
Anna: I only corrected one thing, she got the name of the Academy of Ancient Music wrong. I spent much of my misplaced childhood at AAM concerts so I should know. Anyway, the food. How did you find cooking this tonight my lovely chef-husband?
Peter: I think it benefits from having everything out and ready before you start as the whole process is very quick.
Anna: Did our Donna suggest you do this, or is it something you decided to do?
Peter: I brought that tip to this recipe. It was very quick and I found it hard to know when the polenta was cooked but that’s because I’ve never made polenta before.
Anna: You’ll know for next time…..
Peter: This was double cheese polenta, posh cheesy mash. The veal was good with the prosciutto. And I think they complemented each other well. Go easy on the portions though, if you don’t have a big appetite.
Anna: I really liked this. I need double cheesy food at the moment and it hit the jackpot. We had it with spinach to add a veg component, and I think this would make a lovely meal for a weeknight dinner party. The veal was a bit pricey, but you could substitute it for turkey escalopes if you wanted to.
Peter: Or pork chops! On a practical note, this dish only uses two pans which is good. And the recipe is easy to follow. But I found it off-putting that there were 4 recipes on each page, and the photo was on a different one. That’s just my opinion.
