  1. Bring the stock to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low. Pour the cornmeal into stock in a steady stream while stirring vigorously until thickened. Cook for 40 minutes, stirring often until very thick.
  2. Pour the funchi onto a cold, slightly wet plate, and spread evenly. Cover with another plate, and allow to set, about 30 minutes. Cut into 8 wedges like a pie to serve.

Pretty good! I had this in St. Thomas and they called it Funghi, I guess the Dutch say it differently.
