I’m still in Italy for a few more days, but I couldn’t let World Nutella Day go by without joining the celebration! Thanks to the wonders of technology and forward-dating on Blogger, I was able to prepare my contribution before I left the States.
I also wanted to let you know you have a little more time to leave a comment on my post about anolini in order to win a specialty pasta cutter AND help the people of Haiti too. Deadline to leave a comment is Tuesday night Feb. 9, 9 p.m. EST. Click here to find out more.

Nutella is beloved around the world, including Taipei as you can see on this billboard:

Enjoy World Nutella Day. I can’t wait to see what everybody else has cooked up!
