If you travel to Italy and go to a local bar for an aperitivo and snack, you might come across this codfish mousse (mantecato means “whipped”) served on toast or a slice of baguette, but purists serve it atop a rectangle of grilled polenta. One bite and you’ll know why: The combination of charred cornmeal cake with the fluffy, salty spread can’t be beat.
