Win a Trip for Two to Italy to Cook Alongside "Gluten Free Girl and The Chef" Shauna and Daniel Ahern

Gluten-free-villa-TuscanyIt's back by popular demand. Yes, if you missed one of the last two Gluten Free Culinary Getaways sponsored by Jovial Foods, now is your chance. Once again, this maker of gluten free Italian pasta, olive oil, sauces, and cookies is hosting a week-long culinary getaway in the Tuscan town of Lucca, Italy from September 7-14, 2013. You'll learn the secrets of gluten free Italian cooking as "Gluten Free Girl" Shauna James Ahern and her husband Daniel Ahern (a.k.a. "The Chef") demonstrate their knowledge and skills in the kitchen. Three hands-on demonstrations will be followed by wonderful gluten free meals, and both a Welcome and Farewell Dinner are also included. 

Best of all, Jovial Foods will award one lucky winner a free trip for two to attend this fabulous GF Getaway in Tuscany! And it couldn't be easier to enter...just visit their Facebook page to learn more. The contest is open through July 15, 2013.

Kitchen-at-tuscan-villaThis is a perfect opportunity to combine a vacation to one of the most beautiful areas of the world with an education in gluten free cooking. Whether you're new to the gluten free diet or have been following if for years, you're sure to pick up some tips and have lots of fun at the same time. In addition to dining on local, gluten free ingredients for the prepared meals, you'll also have access to a kitchen stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, wine, breads and pastas for the duration of your stay. 

Screen Shot 2013-06-24 at 5.34.46 PMThere's plenty of "free" time, too, so you can choose to plan side trips to places like Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, or Sienna. Or maybe you'd just prefer to relax by the villa's pool or explore the Italian countryside, follow the hiking trails, and meander through nearby towns. At the end of the day this historic 18th century villa will welcome you back with all its modern amenities: free wireless Internet access, satellite TV and DVD player, CD player and iPod docking station, laundry facilities, and an English speaking staff that can assist with travel questions. 

Rooms at the villa book up quickly for this one-of-a-kind trip, so don't wait too long if you're interested. I'd encourage you to enter the contest but also book your room as soon as possible. If it turns out that you're the winner, there will be no charge for your stay. To get an idea for what a cooking demo would be like with Shauna and Danny, you can watch a video where guests make gluten free pizza at last month's Gluten Free Getaway at the villa. The food and idyllic setting will have you ready to hop on the next plane!
