Perilous polenta

Sir: Reference the correspondence "Weeping into my polenta" and in support of Charlie Burgess' letter (13 June).

When I was in Austria many years ago I was told by a former soldier that the German-speaking troops in the first world war referred to polenta as "Die gelbe gefahr", "The yellow peril".
