Scott Conant makes his polenta in a crockpot at his restuarant to serve his guests. You can make as much as You want, and Hes says its the creamiest polental. I just added mascarpone to make it creamier. I call polenta the italian mash. Its so much easier and much less time consuming than mashed potatoes. Also a nice change.
