History and culinary traditions in Milan.
Its location controlling the plain of Po and the access to the Alps made of Milan an important center during the Middle Ages. It has suffered all over the centuries wars to conquer the city by popes, Habsburgs, Napoleon and a long list of famous rulers. Nowadays it is a modern and cosmopolite city rebuilt after the II World War bombardments.
Its gastronomy is more based on rice than on pasta, which is something quite exceptional in Italy. Ossobuco (stewed veal shank) is very frequently used for several typical dishes. But the most famous ones are risotto alla milanese (rice cooked with beef marrow and saffron) and cotoletta alla milanese (veal breaded cutlet). Do not miss gorgonzola cheese.
