Alfred Geisler went to visit his charming 89-year-old grandmother Oma Gretl and her sweet little cat, Mori. He was allowed to watch over her shoulder as she made original Zillertaler Krapfen and film it for us. This is Ziller Valley cooking at its very best!
Enjoy the film!
Classification: An absolute must-watch!
