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 show us the ingredients and utensils necessary for making the classic risotto alla milanese (Milanese style rice). The star of the show is the precious zafferano (saffron), whose history Anna tells us about.
