Polenta on the Board with Grandma Mary Alice

  • The Lynhall 2640 Lyndale Avenue South Minneapolis, MN, 55408 United States (map)

Join us as special guest Mary Alice makes her family favorite Polenta on the Board. Polenta on the Board is an Italian dish where soft polenta is served on a board (or table), covered in sugo or stew, and everyone sits around and digs in with a fork. No plates necessary. She makes a recipe that has been passed down through 5 generations. 

Mary Alice's family immigrated from Italy in the early 1900s and settled in Northern MN on the Iron Range. The meal originated in Italy as a poor man's meal because it was very inexpensive. Mary's Great-Grandma, Luisa Cegna, immigrated to the United States in 1912. She had 18 brothers and sisters. The family still has Luisa's Spianatora (wooden table), although they use one that was made in Northern MN 30+ years ago.

Free to attend.
