I’m happy to share with you that the good people at S. Pellegrino have offered a $150 gift certificate for Food With Legs readers to win. The gift certificate is for Chef Mark McEwan’s Fabbrica restaurant in the Shops at Don Mills. Contest details are below.
It’s a fairly open secret around these part that I was once a very picky eater. So much so that maybe ten years ago when I had my first veal parmigiana sandwich from Mustachio’s at St. Lawrence Market I felt like I was pushing my limits. I figured that if I was going to go as far as a sandwich in the basement of a market I might as well go further and add an Aranciata (orange-flavoured) San Pellegrino. My taste in food has progressed well beyond Mustachio’s but I still think of San Pellegrino as adding an authentic sophistication to casual Italian food.
Comment below with your first or favourite San Pellegrino restaurant memory by Friday, February 4, 2011 at 5 PM eastern. The winner will be randomly selected from comments made before the deadline. Please leave your email in the appropriate field so that I can get in touch with you if you win but these will not be shared publicly. One entry per person.
Update: Using the random number generator at random.org I determined that the winner of the $150 gift certificate to Mark McEwan’s Fabbrica was entry 25 of 27. Colleen C.’s comment was one of the more romantic ones:
Having San Pellegrino at a street side restaurant during our honeymoon in Rome was absolutely sublime. We stock it at our house, just to take us back to Rome!
Congratulations, Colleen, and thanks everyone for entering.
