Join Our Italian Recipe Contest

In this week’s entry of #TuscanTuesday, we are thrilled to announce our Italian recipe contest. Watch the announcement and interview with our esteemed judge here.

Some of us love to cook, and most of us love to eat… especially Italian food. We plan to feature some amazing Italian recipes through the upcoming months. But we will start here, with a recipe contest judged by our friend and talented chef and restaurateur, Antonella.

Antonella hails from Rome, and has been running her personal chef business, Eating In Style for about 15 years. Then a few years ago she pursued her lifelong dream of opening a restaurant, which she runs with her son. La Pizzeria in Campbell is where you’ll find some of the best authentic Italian food in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Brandy and I met Antonella eight years ago when we first launched Tuscan Travel Group, because she was our Italian language teacher. We became fast friends and have been working with her since to cater parties and run cooking classes for friends and clients. Read about our most recent cooking class here.

Although she’s quite busy, Antonella has generously agreed to act as celebrity judge for our recipe contest. Here’s where you come in:
