THE STORY

In year 1820 Marquise Busca Arconati Visconti, born Serbelloni, hosts some nobles from Milan, France and Austria in her country house in the Gorgonzola village. The Marquise wants to offer a rich banquet, showing the nobility that the typical cheese of Gorgonzola is great food for aristocratic tastes and not only for poor people! The chef of the Marquise needs help to prepare the magnificent banquet and Ginevra, the handmaiden of Serbelloni family, selects a special cooking staff .

Will you help Ginevra and the chef to cook the best prepared courses for that memorable event?

Cristina, playing as Ginevra, jumps with you into the past. You visit Gorgonzola as it was about 200 years ago, sharing Serbelloni family tales and gossip. Here you discover the secret origins of the Gorgonzola cheese and how luckily it has reached its actual yummy smelly fame and…. guess what? Finally, an expert Chef teaches you to cook special food with gorgonzola cheese. A complete menu, from starters to dessert.
