This is definitely an exciting food trend: Latino Italian fusion recipes. Combining two family favorites, Latino flavors and spices with traditional Italian ingredients, Barilla recently partnered with celebrity Chef Ingrid Hoffmann to develop delicious and unique recipes.

They are celebrating Latinas’ creativity in the kitchen and passion for new flavors with this campaign that perfectly captures Latino seasoning in re-imagined pasta dishes.

Inspired by the diversity of Latin cuisine, Barilla is collaborating with premier Latino chefs to develop a roster of Latin-inspired pasta dishes exclusively for Latino Italian Fusion that captures the flavors of Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.
