Does Your Man Cook? You Could Win $10,000!


It’s confirmed – girls like guys who can cook! In fact, 92 percent of women recently surveyed say they like it when a guy cooks for them!  Now, Buitoni® and sexy celebrity dancer, actor and at-home chef Gilles Marini are on a mission to get guys in the kitchen!   They’re inviting guys to get cooking with Buitoni pasta and sauces for the chance to win $10,000 and a year’s supply of Buitoni refrigerated products in the “Girls Like Guys Who Can Cook” Contest at www.facebook.com/BuitoniUSA.


If $10,000 isn’t enough to motivate guys to make dinner tonight, they should check out the results from a recent Buitoni survey:


  • Women describe men who can cook as thoughtful (71%), sweet (48%), confident (44%), attractive (31%), sexy (27%) and successful (20%). Wow!

  • Sixty-one percent of women said they want their guy to cook for them more often, and 15 percent said their guy never cooks for them. C’mon guys!

  • Just over 45 percent of women surveyed said they are most impressed that their guy is just trying to cook for them!

  • Ciao bello! Nearly 45 percent of women surveyed think a guy is sexiest when cooking Italian.

From the sound of it, there has never been a better time for guys to cook with Buitoni pastas and sauces!


“My wife loves it when I cook for her! She says there’s nothing sexier than when I make her a romantic dinner at home,” said Marini, movie screen stud and contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars: All Stars.” “I want guys to understand that it takes only a few simple ingredients to make an incredible meal. With Buitoni pastas and sauces you can go from zero to hero before the water even starts to boil. And when cooking for someone, the rewards are always worth the effort!”



Now through November 4, girls and their guys can enter the “Girls Like Guys Who Can Cook” Contest at facebook.com/BuitoniUSA for a chance to win $10,000 and a year’s supply of Buitoni pastas and sauces. To enter, fans must visit the Contest entry page and upload a video showcasing a guy’s ability to turn an ordinary meal into an extraordinary one with Buitoni pastas and sauces (see Official Rules at the Contest page for full entry requirements). After the entry period has concluded, fans can come back to Facebook to vote for their favorite videos.


Looking for yet another reason to get guys cooking? November 1 is “National Men Make Dinner Day,” the perfect opportunity for girls to capture their guy in action, on video. A few clicks of the mouse could be worth $10,000!
