The gorgonzola and the Marquise: cheese for poors at a nobles banquet

THE STORY

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