Also, "marmetta" is certainly not Spanish - no native Spanish word has
a double t. (And the only word I know for a dutch oven in Spanish is
"cazuela," but that's a bit vaguer. There's probably something more
specific but I don't know it; I never needed quite such specific
culinary vocabulary when I was a medical interpreter, so it didn't
come up.)
