Recently, I had the chance to get into a dream kitchen in Toronto with a group of fellow bloggers and Chef Stefano Faita. If you remember, I had mentioned the Nutella® Truck Tour and that Chef Stefano had created 6 amazingly delicious recipes made with Nutella®.
We had the chance to get our hands dirty and re-create all of his recipes, with his help. I was over the moon! It’s always such a unique experience and I always learn something new. There’s also nothing like watching a chef teach others how to make their recipes, you can see the passion!

While Nutella® tastes amazing spread on a slice of perfectly toasted bread, there are some brilliant ways that you have never thought to use it with. Chef Stefano has created flavours that can be enjoyed by everyone and that will tantalize your taste buds. I was stoked to have been able to re-create his recipes and share them with you all!
