    Isn't this the stuff carp fishermen use to make boilies or whatever they call them?
    Sounds a bit dodgy to me. Think i'll stick to good old british food like Chicken Tikka Biryani and Vindaloo sauce.:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Whoops, crossed posts.:Wink:

    I believe you can get a fine polenta if you look around.

    Hi John

    In the UK, is it not known as maize meal ?

    Polenta is an Italian name for a meal made from grounded corn or maize meal.
