ZONIN’S TV DEBUT ON COOKING CHANNEL!
My wine sponsor, Casa Vinicola Zonin’s TV debut “From Italy with Love” airs on Cooking Channel, TOMORROW, Wed. Nov 5, 9:30PM ET/8:30pm Central! 3 Miami Watching Parties with complimentary Aperitivo, bubbly Zonin Prosecco and velvety Castello d’Albola Chianti Classico will be served! The very good looking Francesco Zonin makes it easy to watch, ha!
“From Italy with Love” is a lifestyle contest show where three Americans are immersed in the Italian culture… After spending a week learning how to communicate, dress, live, cook and enjoy wine like an Italian, they must demonstrate that real Italian cuisine is truly simple, authentic, cost effective and most importantly nutritional.
Three judges: Francesco Zonin, a Cooking Channel celebrity – Kelsey Nixon, and Italian TV chef celebrity Fabrizio Nonis, judge the contestants on specific guidelines and categories. The three contestants are Lynn Borges, Katie Meyers, and Lesroy Louard. At the end of the show, the judges choose the true Italian!
Connect with “From Italy with Love” on all social media outlets and invite your friends, family, and colleagues!
