Marika and Anna enact an Italian classroom situation, where la maestra (the teacher or schoolmistress) calls on Anna to tell her about the different regions of Italy. In subsequent videos, they show us how to cook some of the traditional recipes from these regions. Cook and learn!
Anna and Marika provide the list of necessary ingredients for this Calabrese specialty. This recipe calls for sheep's milk ricotta. When you go to buy ricotta in Italy, storekeepers will ask if you want cow, sheep, or goat ricotta. You can also specify a mix.
All the ingredients are ready, and Anna and Marika go to work, making the ricotta ball mixture. They share with us a common saying about prezzemolo (parsley).
