Carbonera - Traditions of Malcesine

A recipe of past times, “Polenta Carbonera”, is based on local products that were available even to the poorest families: corn flour, water, cheese, olive oil! Its preparation required not only a lot of time but also much strength to turn the polenta in large pots, that’s why it was a job for the men of the house. Now you can taste it in a few restaurants and during the popular festivals: a delight! Have you ever tried it?
