  1. Buon Giorno,

    How great is this sweepstakes win a trip of a lifetime in the most wonderful country in the world. To also be able to cook with Tuscan chefs and stay at a magnifico villa in Tuscany to enjoy the fruits of our labor with new friends would be thrilling.

    Born to a family of Italian immigrants and being raised on the wonderful cooking of my grandmother, I can appreciate the delicious feast of Italian food and wine. Although my family continues these traditions, going to Italy and learning to cook with the chefs of Tuscany would be like being back with mia Cucina Nonna, e mia nonno, zio, zia e cugino. Tutta a famiglia e insieme durante le feste!

    Molto Grazie!

  2. My husband and I love all things Italian, especially the food.
    We would welcome the chance to learn authentic Italian cooking from the experts. Thanks.

  3. Your coupon for pepperoni was used for the first time – great food – I don’t really enter contests but your ad was enticing and well done.

  4. A trip to Italywould be awesome and the cooking course just the best ever. I love to experiment with Italian cooking
