    1. Place dried porcini mushrooms in a small heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water.
    2. Combine milk, chicken stock and salt in a medium heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil, then while whisking, add cornmeal in a slow, steady stream until combined.
    3. Cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, for 30 minutes or until polenta is tender. Stir through 1/2 cup (50g) parmesan. Remove from heat and keep in a warm place until required.
    4. Heat oil in a large casserole pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and shallots, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes or until soft.
    5. Increase heat to high. Add butter, mushrooms, wine, thyme, porcini and porcini water, and cook, covered for 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until mushrooms soften. Add and stir chopped parsley
    6. Serve polenta in bowl, then top with mushroom and sprinkle with Feta cheese.
