Pour in the water from cooking the broccoli vegetable passed to mixer, Add the butter, adjust the salt if necessary and cook the polenta for the time indicated on the package. Once soda, mix Parmesan cheese and spread it on a cutting board or on a sheet of parchment paper to a thickness of 2 centimetres.

For fondue, put into a casserole cream, bring it to a boil and then, over a very low heat, join the taleggio cheese, diced, stirring until the cheese has melted and thickened fondue. Boil the quail eggs and shell them, then divide each egg in half.

THE PAIRING: A Rosso Piceno Doc is the wine that we recommend with this dish that is apparently a starter but, Actually, contains all the ingredients of a second hearty polenta, the egg and the Taleggio Dop. We chose Katharsis, label produced by the company agricola San Filippo, company that is based in Offida, Ascoli: a balanced wine with aromas of red fruit and a fair lasting taste.
