Dreaming of life in Italy?

Here's a contest for a very special food candidate: If you're a chef, bartender or sommelier and you really want to live in Italy, and you can communicate in both English and Italian, AND you understand the world of social media, it could be for you.

Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is a Tuscan village that is being restored as a resort with luxury residences. And it needs a chef, bartender and sommelier for its restaurant, La Rocca di Castelfalfi. To find the right people, it's holding a social media contest, Dreaming Tuscany:

To enter, you need to make a 60-second video explaining "or creatively showcasing" why you're the best candidate for the job. You have to "like" Castelfalfi's Facebook page and upload the video there and to Twitter (#dreamingtuscany). The deadline is March 23, and the six candidates whose videos get the most "likes" will go to Castelfalfi in April for a one-week tryout. And of course, the winners get a six-month contract.

Start by getting more details (and the important "like" click) at I'll just say: "Che la fortuna possa essere sempre dalla tua parte," which I really hope means "May the odds be ever in your favor."
