I have talked about “Dude Food” several times, I just have a huge fascination with it. To me, it’s about comfort. I love cooking and eating food that’s tasty, easy to eat and easy to recognize.

Nothing fancy here but it’s open for fancy stuff. Chuck some smoked paprika into the braise to add little more flavour or saute some chorizo sausage in before you add the liquids, it lifts the dish to another level. The polenta can also be added to like a little truffle oil at the end or saute mixed mushrooms in butter and fold it through just before serving and finish it off with a poached egg – bloody beautiful!
