Michelle Obama is currently touring Italy where she paid visit to the Milan Expo, a choice which is hardly surprisingly since she is a well-known advocate of healthy food.
Mrs Obama took part to a cooking show during which she dared cooking pasta with a pressure cooker. However, the First Lady knew very well that this is not the usual procedure, and proposed this alternative since it is less energy-demanding and water-consuming and more healthy.
Moreover, the Italian chef Davide Scabin revealed that he uses the very same method, obtaining a very tasty and energetic dish.
In sum, we can hope to avoid another food war with the United States after the recent one caused by a McDonald’s ad showing an Italian child preferring its products to a classical Italian pizza. McDonald’s was already under fire due to its allegedly improper role in the Milan Expo.
