 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      tablespoon    butter -- unsalted
    1      tablespoon    olive oil
    1      teaspoon      garlic -- minced
    1 1/2  cups          heavy cream
    1 1/2  cups          milk
    1 1/2  cups          water
      1/8  teaspoon      cayenne
    1      whole         bay leaf
      1/2  cup           cornmeal -- yellow 
      1/2  cup           Asiago Cheese -- or Parmesan
 
 1. In a 2 quart heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add
the oil and garlic. Sweat the garlic for about 2 minutes, but don't let it brown.
 2. Add the cream, milk, and water to the pan and increase the heat to high. Add
the cayenne pepper and bay leaf. Let simmer for 5 minutes, then remove the bay
leaf.
 3. Whisking constantly, pour the cornmeal into the boiling liquid in a thin
stream. Cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the polenta begins
to thicken. Stir in the cheese.
 4. Pour the polenta out into a jelly-roll pan and keep warm until ready to serve.
