A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a representative of Bertolli products asking me if I'd be interested in testing out the new iPhone app that featured chef Fabio Viviani along with some incredible recipes, videos, and photos. I, of course, had to turn them down because as I said previous, I do not own an iPhone. Regardless of my lack of technological gadgets, they sent me a sample bottle of their olive oil anyway. They also have been kind enough to offer YOU, my loyal readers, a 17oz bottle of their extra virgin olive oil too!! So, not only was I selfish in wanting a bottle, but I was also very generous, cause I got one for you too :)
The only thing you have to do.... leave a comment here on my site telling me you want this bottle. I'm going to also go out on a limb and give you an extra chance to win by leaving me a comment on my facebook page too. You have until 11:00pm (eastern standard time) Wednesday, November 9th to enter. Winners will be announced the morning of Thursday, November 10th. Good luck!
