    Bring both the hotpot and the polenta pan straight to the table, so that everyone can help themselves to polenta first, then spoon the vegetables, meat and cooking juices on top.

Remarks:

Taos hotpot, like any slow-cooked dish, can be reheated and served again several times - it just gets better every time. As the quantities are mostly for guidance, do adapt it to suit whatever vegetables or meat you have handy.
