Barilla’s Bayou to the Bay Contest 2019 Winners

For the past few weeks, we’ve seen so many inspiring and delicious takes on Southern-inspired cooking that also incorporated Barilla pasta. Out of 150 incredible entries and an insanely competitive Top 10  – our judges have finally chosen the winner for the 2019 Barilla Bayou to the Bay contest!

The Grand Prize is an all-expenses paid culinary trip of a lifetime with Barilla to Baton Rouge, LA and a custom Jende Industries knife roll. Our People’s Choice Winner was chosen by the public by receiving the most votes by the chef community online! They’ll be taking home $250 to True Cooks and a $250 spice makeover from Spiceology!

Congrats to our two winners and everyone who participated!
