The cultivation of corn and subsequent production of polenta has a long tradition in Ticino. The traditional mills in the Onsernone valley not only produce polenta but also "farina bona", a flour made from toasted corn. The toasting process gives the corn its special popcorn flavour. For this autumn gratin recipe, we have used Onsernone polenta – a blend of bramata and farina bona – together with an autumnal mushroom ragout.

How it's done

Polenta

Bring the milk to the boil in a pan. Stir in the polenta, reduce the heat, simmer for approx. 45 mins. to create a thick paste, stirring frequently. Stir in the cheese, season. Spread the polenta (approx. 1.5 cm thick) on a baking tray lined with baking paper, leave to cool ca. 2 hours. Cut out approx. 6 cm circles.

Mushroom ragout

Heat the oil in a pan, sauté the onion, garlic and vegetables. Add the tomato puree, bay leaf and thyme, briefly sauté. Pour in the wine and stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer the vegetables for approx. 20 mins. Heat the butter in a frying pan, briefly sauté the mushrooms, add to the vegetables, simmer for approx. 5 mins. Stir in the parsley, season.

Gratin

Transfer the mushroom ragout to a greased, ovenproof dish (approx. 3 l). Spread the polenta rounds on top, sprinkle with cheese.

Gratinate for approx. 10 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C.
