Preparation

In a thick-bottomed pot, bring water, milk, salt, bay leaf and oil to a boil. Remove bay leaf.

Add cornmeal in a fine stream, whisking constantly. Add cheese.

Cook over very low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring constantly in a figure-8 pattern with a wooden spoon and scraping the bottom. Polenta is cooked when it draws away from the sides of the pot.

Spread polenta in a buttered dish. When polenta is no longer hot but just warm, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour or until cold and firm.

Cut with a knife or pastry cutter.
