What a fantastic email we just got from David Helwig of, a popular information and entertainment local portal from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada.

Go check their portal if you are planning a trip to beautiful Canada, specially if you plan to visit the incredibly beautiful Northern Ontario. They even have a very cool 360 degrees webcam so you can see how beautiful is Sault S.te Maire from the top of the City Hall and across the river. Nice!

The Best of the Blogs Award awarded to Italian Food Lovers from has been announced with the following motivation:

Whereas 16,015 residents of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario described their ethnic origin in a recent federal census as “Italian”; and

Whereas Sault expatriates around the world struggle this time of year to fulfil their longings for said cuisine; and

Whereas members of the Barilla family are known and respected worldwide as defenders and ambassadors of traditional Italian gastronomic culture;

Thank you David and thanks you, but most of all thank you to all the citizens of City of Sault Ste. Marie, not only for awarding our blog as Best of the Blog winner, but also for awarding to the Barilla family the respect and title of ambassadors of traditional Italian gastronomic culture and, most of all, for keeping up with the tradition of Italian gourmet cuisine in Northern Ontario, Canada.

Our virtual Italian Food Lovers award goes to you all and to the sweet City of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada.

By the way, I will get in touch immediately with the Academia Barilla offices in the United States, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

I’m sure they’ll love to include Saulte Ste. Marie in the list of places where to organize our delicious Academia Barilla free tasting events of Italian traditional gourmet food. I’m sure the citizens of Sault Ste. Marie will appreciate a free session of gourmet tasting provided by Academia Barilla as a thank you for the very appreciated Best of the Blogs award.

Thank you again, and Happy New Year to all our new Canadian Italian Food Lovers friends!

The very proud Italian Food Lovers / Academia Barilla blogging team.
