This year marks the 100th Anniversary of San Giorgio® pasta. To commemorate this milestone, San Giorgio is launching a pasta recipe contest and celebrating with festivities in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and surrounding neighborhoods throughout the month of October.
The company is launching a pasta recipe contest to celebrate 100 years. Now through August 28, pasta lovers in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and surrounding neighborhoods can enter the contest at http://www.sangiorgio.com/contest by submitting their favorite San Giorgio pasta family recipe for the chance to win a Grand Prize of $5,000. The contest will have one Grand Prize winner in the Baltimore-area, Philadelphia-area and Pittsburgh-area respectively.
Three contest finalists in each city will put their family recipe to the test by competing head-to-head in a cook-off competition. To determine a contest winner in each city, San Giorgio pasta has teamed up with local chefs and restaurateurs to host and judge the competition at their restaurants.
All boasting a long-standing family heritage of serving up mouthwatering Italian cuisine to multiple generations of diners, the chefs joining San Giorgio to celebrate the 100th anniversary include Carmela and Jolina Giaramita, La Tavola Italiana on Mt. Washinton.
To thank the neighborhoods and communities that have supported San Giorgio pasta over the years, the brand will be making a $5,000 donation to Just Harvest (http://www.justharvest.org/).
