Anderson surprised guests with a taste of Italy with a do-it-yourself pasta dinner gift set for 4 created by IL Palato Italiano's awarded Michelin Chef Filippo Sinisgalli who is known as "Hollywood's Old World Italian Chef."

Anderson met Chef Sinisgalli at an Oscar Gifting Suite.

"I can't wait to have the Chef at my house warming party." Anderson was thrilled to introduce the Chef and his healthy recipes to his celebrity friends.

“My father passed away from complications due to diabetes. The primary mission for my golf classic is to benefit non-profit organizations that support children, young adults and adults in areas of health, wellness, faith and mentorship," said Anderson who, along with his mom, have Type 2 Diabetes. "I have hopes that this tournament will become a prestigious two-day event of great golf, great fun, laughter and most importantly, charitable giving to causes near and dear to my heart.”

"Italian food has always been one of my favorites, until I was introduced to IL Palato Italiano and Chef Filippo," said Cheadle who is currently starring in the blockbuster action film, "Avengers: Infinity War." "Chef Filippo has made me a believer. Amazing food." Cheadle stated he would love to visit Bolzano, Italy, the headquarters of IL Palato Italiano.

Il Palato Italiano gifted each celebrity with a special home kit to prepare the authentic pasta dish, the jewel of culinary art, spaghetti, tomato sauce and measuring fork, plus a recipe book consisting of step-by-step instructions about how to cook the typical dish of Belpaese. "We bring authentic Italian food to your doorstep," said Chef Sinisgalli. "It's an honor to excite everyone's palate."
