Authentic Italy: And the winner is ....



I am sure many of you have been waiting for the results of the La Cucina Italiana contest. A one year subscription to the glossy La Cucina Italiana magazine to celebrate the launch in the USA.

The rules were simple: Cook an authentic Italian dish, giving an insight to the dish, it's culinary traditions and origins.

I got two lovely ladies to help me judge this contest. Both are connoisseurs of Italian food to say the least. The gorgeous Ivonne and the ravishing Ilva carefully went through each of the submissions and scored in the categories:
  • Authenticity
  • Research
  • How Italian is it?
  • Droolworthy
Each category could receive a maximum of 10 points, making a total of 40 points per judge per submission.

After adding up the points for each judge we had a clear winner!

The prize goes to (drum roll pleas):

Jude of Apple Pie, Patis, Pâté for his Coda all Vaccinara - Roman Braised Oxtail, Butcher’s Style. Besides being a Roman specialty, Jude's candid post explained how the dish is created with easy to follow notes on how to prepare it.

From Ivonne, Ilva and myself we congratulate you and hope you enjoy Italian cooking with your one year subscription!

If you would like to view all of the submissions to the contest please view the La Cucina Contest Submissions list.

Thanks to all of the participants for taking part!
