I loved reading your post. I could just see everyone around the table! I have never heard of this putting the polenta, etc., onto a big board and everyone eating from it. I love that.

I've been meaning to order a good rolling pin; I really must get on that. And how interesting about the spianatoia. Congrats on your new acquisitions, use them in good health!


Very nice you were able to purchase one, too.



Where would we Italians be without our boards? I use mine everyday for everything. And talk about weapons!..oh! how true! I used to keep an extra behind my front door when at one time I lived in a shady area. I feel bad for any bad guy coming near my door haha.

Thanks Lisa. Polenta eaten on the board is a lot of fun. My husband got it to try once and he loved it.

Yes, Paz, I am very glad.

That's funny, Maryann. I would have done the same.


Wonderful memories! We were introduced to the polenta sulla spianatoia during our residency in Italy, but a friend in Rome who made it for us annually. Delicious, and so much fun to eat off the board!

Hi Valerie and thanks for your note. I am glad you experienced the fun of eating polenta sulla spianatoia.
