    I absolutely love the shots of Italy. I’ve never been, but it is on the top of my list of places to go. It looks amazing!

  2. Stacie Aho

    How awesome! It’s perfect timing for me. I’m headed to San Diego for the summer on Sunday, and my mom is coming up so she could watch my kiddos!! Sounds like an incredible trip!

    I loved the big round of cheese! And I want to eat some of that hand pinched pasta. YUM!

  3. Stephanie

    Oh this would be a dream come true ๐Ÿ™‚ Loved how they had to match up the cheese to the animal. And love Rocco too!

  4. Brett

    Watching this video makes me want to–REALLY WANT TO–return to Italy… It’s my favorite holiday of all time! I loved the cooking segment–fun, family, authentic; LOVED it!

  5. Tara

    I wish I could just reach through my screen and taste test that cheese with them!! I really enjoyed seeing them pinch the pasta. Mine would look totally messed up I’m sure. Also enjoyed watching them ‘try’ to do the traditional toss. I have tried that so many times here at home and it just goes everywhere. I think I need Rocco’s help (in LA)!

  6. Jennifer Stout

    I loved the story…the scavenger hunt through Italy to find the perfect ingredients for the pasta. That would be such a fun activity to do with my husband or my kids in a town we don’t know…And ending it at the table with family and friends always makes for a happy ending!

  7. Jerilee E.

    I love anything that’s about CHEESE!! Love every sort of cheese… that I’ve tried :). Also loved watching the ‘perfect pinch’

  8. Amy Crowle

    I liked the part with them trying to decide which cheese is which ~ I soooo want to win this!

  9. Arena

    My fav part was Roccoโ€™s fake Italian accent: โ€œWe have no money, so we put up cheese.โ€ Hehe!

  10. Debbie R.

    Wow, Jenny, what a great opportunity!!

    I have to say I thought the fact they had to carry that big wheel of cheese to Vito’s was funny! I bet that weighed a ton!! Also loved pinching the farfelle by hand!

  11. Pam Shank

    I loved the whole adventure. The Italian scenery,the laughing and friendship,and of course the food. What a fun and memorable giveaway.

  12. Tammie

    Wow! What a fun giveaway! My favorite part was watching them all work in the kitchen and learning how to pinch the pasta. At dinner they all looked like they were having a fabulous time together!

  13. Kara

    This is awesome! I loved the cheese shop and the 250+ types of cheese – so yummy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. gina

    LOVED seeing the Italian countryside!! It’s been 4 years since I’ve been to Tuscany…and OH how I’d love to go back! {sigh} Someday.

  15. Heather

    The whole video was so much fun…the beautiful Italian scenery, the cheese, the pasta. I would have to say my favorite part was watching them prepare dinner and making the pasta. So amazing!
    What an amazing giveaway and I would love to hang out with you in sunny LA.
    Looking forward to seeing what’s next in the Italian adventure!

  16. L

    What an awesome giveaway….I would have loved to taste that cheese with them, that was the best part

  17. Ally @ Sweet & Savory

    What a wonderful trip! I loved the part when Marisa put the “tool” in her hair! Hello…cheese as collateral? Wow!

  18. Colleen Gallagher-Sullivan

    I loved the idea of finding clues in a beautiful city to put together your meal. I would have loved doing that with my friend, Kelsi. We love wine, cheese & cooking together for both our families.

  19. Kelli

    WOW what an awesome giveaway! I loved the little cafe they were sitting at when they got their first clue– but I have to admit, after she put the cheese hammer in her hair and then I saw the man at the cheese shop using it…. Let’s just say thank heavens she at least looks clean! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Molly

    Oh my gosh, Jenny! I’d love to win this trip and come hang with you on the West Coast. My favorite part of this video was when Vito’s mom was macking on Dan…she’s too cute!

  21. Stacy

    First of all, I love Bertolli frozen meals! They’re awesome when you’re in a pinch for a fast and good meal! Second, in regards to the video – um….I just freaking love cheese! I got excited watching them head into the shop – all that delicious stinky cheese just waiting to be eaten! Haha

    And OMG, watching them cook and eat that pasta….my mouth is watering!

  22. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is

    Ohmigosh!! I want to hang with you, Jenny!!!

    I must say cheese. It may sound cliche, but goat cheese? Hello lover!

  23. stacey

    I’d never heard of cheese being used as collateral before, and it was great fun to see them pinching the farfalle. That is on of my favorite kinds of pasta but I’ve never tried making it before – now I know the secret. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Hope

    I’m pretty much here in LA already, but a a couple days would be soo fun.

    I loved to find out that cheese is used as collateral. That’s cool.

  25. cara

    Picking out the 3 different cheeses… cow,goat, or sheep! That was a fun part! I think it could/would be hard to do!

  26. Barb McLaughlin

    I loved the whole adventure – very Amazing Race-ish! Also loved the Italian scenery, since I’ve never been.
