Italians Take Back Their Title at the Fourth Annual French and Italian Culinary Battle

PROVO, Utah (Feb. 10, 2016)—The results are in, and the Italians have taken back their title in the fourth annual French and Italian Culinary Battle.

Each year French and Italian club members participate in a showdown of culinary prowess to determine which of the two cultures can dish up the best cuisine. A panel of judges selects the winners from three categories: best appetizer, best main course and best dessert.

The judges have spoken, and it seems that this year the Italians are the reigning champions.

Though the Italians might have won this year’s battle overall, the French did take the prize for best dessert.
