It sounds too cute to be true, but Italian beer brand Birra Moretti is actually for real with this one. If you buy a six-pack of their cold ones, you've got the chance to invite a real nonna into your home for an unforgettable home-style dining experience. 

Until Sunday, February 11, the 'Deliver-a-Nonna' pop-up service will see Italian grandmothers roving Melbourne's streets in classic Fiat 500s, ready to whip up a three-course Italian feast for you and four friends – right in your very own kitchen! Over a crisp Birra Moretti beer, you can chat with your wise nonna about food, cooking tips and how to truly live la bella vita. If this isn't amore, we don't know what is.

Be sure to have your apron at the ready, because each nonna is a true expert in her culinary craft. If you're an aspiring home chef, it's an unmissable opportunity to get the scoop on all her kitchen secrets (plus a few nuggets of nonna's no-nonsense life advice, too.) 

“A shared meal at the table is at the heart of Italian culture and I’m excited to share this with the rest of Melbourne," says Anna Pascuzzo (and real-life nonna) from Rosa's Traditional Italian Cooking and Classes. "In every recipe enjoyed throughout the Birra Moretti experience, you'll find not just ingredients, but a legacy of love and family tradition passed down through generations, and a taste of what it’s like to live authentically Italian.”

To go in the running for this dream dinner party, all you need to do is buy a six-pack of Birra Moretti at your local bottle shop and visit the website to enter. If you're one of the lucky three winners, you'll be toasting a bevvie with nonna in no time!
