Bancarella della Cucina Finalist!

I’m really excited to share that Buon Appetito America! has won a spot amongst 5 finalists for an important literary prize in Italy! This selection (Premio Selezione Bancarella della Cucina) is considered quite an honor in itself and, needless to say, I’m completely flattered and excited. The actual prize will awarded in Potremoli on September 26th, and I’m up against some very big names (Davide Oldani, Fabio Picchi, etc). Whatever happens, it feels great to receive this level recognition for a project in which I invested so much time, love, and hard work!
