Barilla Road Trip Comes to Tampa

Barilla Pasta is producing a brand new episodic that focuses on pasta recipes from different cities throughout the United States. The idea behind "Barilla Pasta Road Trip" is to showcase local chefs and recipes that utilize locally grown ingredients in 20 different cities around the United States.

Imagine an Idahoan (we had to look that up) walking the audience through a recipe that included delicious Barilla Penne pasta smothered in a sauce that featured good-ole-down-home Idaho potatoes. An interesting and creative endeavor to be sure, and HABANA was excited to be asked to join the fun.

When it comes to Florida, we are known world-wide for two things: beaches and oranges.

When it was time for Barilla Pasta to choose a location that encapsulates the Florida spirit, they were wise to chose beautiful Tampa Bay. Having a production company with roots in Tampa Bay was a must, ensuring that Chef Jeffrey Saad truly got to the heart of the city. They enlisted HABANA to handle the production and collection of Tampa Bay content. Who better to really capture the city, than some passionate content creators that were raised just minutes away?

We loved seeing Barilla work with our local flavors to create a uniquely Floridian pasta recipe.
