David Rocco's Dolce Famiglia - Barilla Pronto

Of all the different types of cuisine, Italian food is my ultimate favourite. I could eat it every day and never tire of it. Pasta aglio olio, pasta al forno, pasta con sugo, lasagne, gnocchi,... you get the picture. One summer, I spent a month in Italy where I studied at the Università per Stranieri di Siena. It was there that I discovered incredibly delicious Italian dishes and found myself surrounded by people who shared a mutual love of pasta, prosciutto and profiteroli. I was in heaven!

For those pasta lovers who will be in the GTA this weekend, you're invited to celebrate pasta with celebrity chef David Rocco. On Sunday, November 6, you can join David for a cooking demonstration with the new Barilla Pronto at The Royal Winter Fair on the main stage from 12:00pm – 12:45pm, in Hall A at the Exhibition Place. Following the demo, he will be at the Barilla booth (booth number 1727) from 1:00pm – 2:00pm doing a book signing of his new cookbook, "Dolce Famiglia". I suggest you get there early because the first 50 guests in line will receive a signed copy of the book for free, and will get to meet David! Plus, everyone who drops by the Barilla booth anytime throughout the fair can receive a free sample and a box of new Barilla Pronto
