 Congratulations to our winners: MUNCHIES AND MUNCHKINS and JULIE’S FAMILY KITCHEN!

Here at Foodies100 we are huge fans of Italian food, and a great pasta is at the heart of some of our favourite Italian recipes.

Loved by Italians everywhere, Giovanni Rana is one of the most cherished culinary secrets in Italy. An artisan pasta maker for more than 50 years, Giovanni Rana’s pasta is made the Italian way, with the finest ingredients, skill and the Rana obsession for quality.

This summer, Foodies100 is teaming up with Giovanni Rana to offer one food blogger the opportunity to attend a one-to-one cooking masterclass in London with Giovanni Rana himself and Antonella Rana, where you’ll learn to make authentic, fresh-filled pasta from scratch. Our winner will also receive a three-course lunch at the Giovanni Rana restaurant, and an exclusive goodie bag. Transport to London will also be included.

If you love pasta, and want to learn from the very best how to make your own pasta dishes, don’t miss our Giovanni Rana Recipe Challenge!

  1. Hello,

    I only received my voucher this morning, went out and bought the ingredients, but it says above that the linky collection is closed, so I can’t enter the competition. I’ll still do a post on my blog when I use the ingredients 🙂

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
