Victoria Riddleston wins the Ellis Jones Wish
Our Associate Solicitor, Victoria Riddleston, won the Ellis Jones Wish at our End of Summer Ball earlier this year. We caught up with Victoria after her return from Italy to hear how she used her Ellis Jones Wish experience.
I was absolutely delighted to have won the Ellis Jones’ wish. I won the day before a holiday to Italy, and my husband and I were treated to a fantastic food tour experience just outside Bologna.
We started the day at a Parmigiano Reggiano DOP factory, learning how this delicious cheese is made. We then stopped for a wonderful breakfast of cheese, meats, Lambrusco and other delightful Italian foods at a family run Modena balsamic vinegar producer. We even got to try 30 year old balsamic vinegar. Our next stop was to a prosciutto factory, with a tour and yet
more amazing food tasting. The tour ended with a delicious Italian lunch at a family run restaurant in the countryside, with endless pastas, meats, and other dishes.
This tour had previously been recommended to me, and I was thrilled to be able to go. We went on the last day of our holiday, so we definitely ended the trip in a brilliant (and rather full) way! The Ellis Jones wish is an excellent idea and I was very pleased to have won.
