C'était un véritable plaisir de participer à cette première édition des Food Influenceurs Awards. L'organisation était parfaite, ce moment de convivialité nous a permis de de faire des rencontres et de partager une soirée avec les jurés, les influenceurs et le public. Enfin, le domaine de Barbossi était un cadre idyllique pour cette cérémonie. Evidemment, je suis très heureuse et émue d'avoir remporté ce prix, surtout devant mes proches. La gastronomie est une véritable passion. Depuis toute petite, les repas de famille ont une grande importance dans ma vie. Chez nous, passer du temps à cuisiner pour son entourage est une façon de dire "je t'aime". Etre récompensée pour quelque chose que j'adore faire est donc un véritable plaisir et cela me pousse à vouloir faire encore mieux.Rêvant de travailler dans l'univers de la gastronomie, j'espère qu'un jour je ferai carrière dans ce secteur !" Victoria nous a dit. 

"I really liked seeing the passion of the food influencers and the professional way they treated the competition. I thank Stylezza for organizing this successful event and we will be honoured to be present for the next editions." Stephane Oprea, President of Escoffier Institute in Romania declared to Stylezza. 

"From the passion of cooking I discovered the passion of the influencers to appeal and attract what they love." Chef Mario d'Orio said. 

When the next edition of Food Influencers Awards will take place? Stay tuned!
