Spanish-Speaking Aspiring Chefs: Win a Trip to Italy



Judging by all these contests for the Spanish-speaking set, American food companies are seriously courting the Latino market.

This one is from Olive Garden.

From a news release: "Now through December 12th, Olive Garden is sponsoring a contest to award an aspiring chef an exclusive trip to Italy to learn from Olive Garden master chefs at the Olive Garden Culinary Institute of Tuscany (CIT). The prize also includes a $10,000

culinary scholarship and a live guest appearance on Univision's "Sabado

Gigante" and "Despierta America." ... Additionally, five runners-up will

each receive a $1,500 scholarship." The public will vote online; voters may win $10 gift certificates to Olive Garden.
