Polenta is beautiful, textured, versatile, nutritious, easy, and delicious. Its uses span from budget conscious, rustic meal for a large family to elegant offering at an intimate dinner party.

Viola Buitoni, a direct descendant of the famed pasta and chocolate family, hails from Perugia, in the heart of Umbria. She came to the US in 1985 for a business degree, but soon after graduation found herself drawn back into the genetic passion for food.
