Correct. They are similar in being grain-with-cheese dishes, but the
recipes I gave are not polenta.

I brlirbr that one of the defining criteria of polenta is that it's made
from meal (ground or crushed grain) and is cooked into a porridge/mush.
Granado has a millet recipe that seems to be a kind of polenta: cooked
millet, mixed with cheese, cooled, sliced, and fried in butter. As with
most of Granado, the original may be from Scappi. (Paging Mistress
