Our Cooking Contest ended few days ago and it’s finally time to announce the winner! We received a lot of recipes and we would like to take this opportunity to thank once again everyone who participated in our contest sending us their own favorite recipes.
GemmeCotti team has already voted and now it’s time to know who will win amazing prizes.
We remind you that person who obtained the first place wins a wonderful kitchen apron with GemmeCotti logo and will see his/her recipe published at the bottom of this article, on our social media pages and on our newsletter. Also the second and the third-best will be awarded with the apron, and they will appear together in a narrower space on our newsletter and social media pages.
But, given the great amount of recipes we received, we decided to award with the GemmeCotti apron also the fourth and the fifth- best recipes that gained very high scores by our team for their originality, delicacy and taste. We also decided to award with a special prize the recipe with the best look.
So here are names of the winners of the different categories:
1° PLACE: Little puff pastry roses – Alessandra P.
2° PLACE: Cheesecake – Martina A.
3° PLACE: Focaccia – Chiara C.
4° PLACE: Layered wonton dessert – Mia S.
