Bertolli Launches New Web Series: ‘Into the Heart Of Italy’

As you may have already heard, Bertolli just launched a new series of webisodes titled “Into the Heart of Italy: Six Adventures, Three Celebrities, One Mission… To Unlock the Secrets of Italian Passion for Food and Life.” This one-of-a-kind online series features celebrity chef Rocco Dispirito and actors Marisa Tomei and Dan Cortese as they explore the food and culture of Italy.

The company invited several bloggers to dine with the group and get a first look at what’s to come. We ate amazing food from A Voce and even made fresh pasta with Rocco and Dan. Sadly, Marisa was a busy bee and had to leave quite early from the event. 🙁 But Dan’s humor and Rocco’s… face made up for it.

(Dan filmed me pinching pasta – I got a little excited when my bow-tie came out right. LOL)

Man – I wish I went on that trip!!!! What an adventure Rocco, Marisa and Dan had as they learned about some of the best food on Earth!


The journey began on March 14th. Each episode gives the viewer a chance to actually WIN THE TRIP. All you have to do is answer a question at the end of each show. You can enter after every show. I’m so doing this!
