Thanks for letting us know! Looks yummy! One of the things I am still planning to make one day :. Christina, It was so nice to meet you at Camp Blogaway. Thank you, Suzanne! My family is full of characters, what can I say? The pair met while working at Whare Kea Lodge near Wanaka - she was front of house and he was executive chef. Her husband encouraged them to stop talking about it and do it, so she found a site and they opened within a year.
Voza, who grew up in her parent's Italian restaurants, helped out and trained as a pizza chef in one. With the book out, Voza, who has more than staff working for her in her various businesses, is ready for another season of operating the food truck pizza business she started after her arrival in Wanaka nine years ago.
It's busy doing markets, festivals, events, birthday parties and even weddings from November to March. She has nothing new on the go at the moment instead wanting to focus on the building up the businesses she has. Stapley, on the other hand, is busy in the kitchen at his restaurant, Kika, in Wanaka, as well as the other Francesca's in Christchurch and Dunedin.
We've got a good team and it's exciting to be part of. He puts the success of the restaurants down to having the right staff, chefs and managers, all being excited about their work and bringing ideas to the table.
We certainly do not claim to have invented polenta fries, but I can say we serve the nicest I've tasted. For weeks before we opened, I tried many ways to keep them crispy. The secret to our polenta fries is the addition of semolina. This plugs up the small holes, keeps the fries from taking on too much oil and allows the outer shell to get seriously crispy. It has become a signature dish at Francesca's and a must-have when dining with us.
Once the oil has cooled, you can strain it through a fine sieve and reserve it for the next time you are deep-frying. It should last a couple of times. Ingredients 2L water 25g salt g bramata or other good-quality instant polenta g semolina flour 2L canola oil or another light vegetable oil, for deep-frying 50g parmesan, grated. Method To make the polenta fries, bring the water to the boil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, and add the salt.
Combine the polenta and semolina in a large bowl, then pour into the water in a steady stream, whisking all the time. Change the whisk to a wooden spoon and cook over a very low heat for 20 minutes, stirring regularly.

Once cooked, pour into a large plastic tub, such as an ice cream container, and refrigerate until firm. Once set, remove from the fridge and turn out on to a clean chopping board. Fill a deep saucepan with oil and heat to degC. Use a thermometer to keep an eye on the temperature.

If you have a deep-fryer, set it to degC. Once the oil has come to temperature, fry the polenta in batches for around 3 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan or deep-fryer, as it will bring the temperature of the oil down and your fries will absorb too much oil before they are cooked properly. Serve the fries seasoned with salt, with a generous grating of parmesan and truffle aioli for dipping.
Truffle aioli Put the egg yolks, mustard, garlic, salt and lemon juice into a bowl. Whisk for a few minutes until light and creamy. A good tip is to put a damp tea towel underneath your bowl so it doesn't slide around. Combine the oils in a jug and very slowly pour into the egg mix, whisking all the time, until all the oil has been used and the mixture is emulsified.
If the aioli is too thick for your liking, adjust by adding a little warm water until the desired consistency is reached.
