Cheddar-Semolina Grits

Traditional grits are made with ground corn, but Jean-Georges Vongerichten creates his with semolina flour, produced from durum wheat; the coarse grain has a lovely pale yellow color and mild flavor. These creamy, cheesy grits go well with everything from poached eggs to beef short ribs.
