Parma, Italy (PRWEB) January 12, 2007
Gourmet food blog Italian Food Lovers was awarded its first blog award only one week after its launch by a popular news source from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada.
The SooToday.com website bestowed the Academia Barilla gourmet food blog with its "Best of the Blogs" award, citing excellence in promoting and defending gourmet Italian food culture.
The stated mission of Academia Barilla's Italian Food Lovers blog is to promote and raise awareness about the art of Italian cuisine and gastronomic tradition by bringing together tradition and innovation.
SooToday.com praised Academia Barilla's blogging efforts by noting that the Barilla family, of which Academia Barilla and the Italian Food Lovers are proud members, is "known and respected worldwide as defenders and ambassadors of traditional Italian gastronomic culture".
Academia Barilla Marketing Director Ilaria Rossi was elated by the award: "The SooToday news organization confirms what we've felt about our Italian Food Lovers blog since we put it on the drawing board a year ago. Our Academia Barilla blogging team is off to a great start discussing traditional gourmet Italian food products and engaging the blogosphere in gastronomic debate. Auguri Blogging Team!"
Though Academia Barilla's Italian Food Lovers blog, reachable also at http://ItalianFoodLovers.AcademiaBarilla.com, only launched a couple of weeks ago, it has nonetheless stirred excitement in gourmet circles both in North America and in Italy.
Academia Barilla Chef and Italian Food Lovers blog author Massimo Mercanti added that "blogging about Academia Barilla's gourmet food products in an educational way is both fun and challenging - there are so many topics we've yet to cover in the gourmet Italian food world!"
