I realize that I'm announcing the winner of the tickets to San Pellegrino's Meatball Madness event, presented by Buitoni and hosted by Giada De Laurentiis, at the New York City Food & Wine Festival a little late, but I was out for most of the day, enjoying the homecoming football game at Lehigh University and all that such an occasion entails (tailgates, marching with the alumni band, watching the game, and post-game tailgates).
Let's not waste any more time and cut right to the chase!
Congratulations to Lisa from Jersey Girl Cooks for her winning entry!
"I love Buitoni's fresh pasta. They make a great quick week night dinner."
I will be emailing you soon so we can arrange the delivery of your tickets. I hope our paths will cross at the event so I can congratulate you in person!
Thanks to everyone who entered and to those who offered well-wishes with regard to my partnership with Buitoni, the official pasta sponsor of the festival. I'm so excited to be working with them and can't wait to report in about everything I see (and taste). Be sure to look for my tweets and to come back and read all about about my time at the Meatball Madness event and the two Grand Tasting events!
PS. In case you were wondering, Lehigh defeated Liberty, 27-24. Go Engineers!
