An Interview With Chef Fabio Viviani

 
Fabio Viviani, interview

If you didn’t stop by the 31st annual MayFair event this past Sunday in Cambridge's Harvard Square, you missed out on the chance to indulge in delicious foods. Even more than that, you missed out on the opportunity to talk to Italian Chef Fabio Viviani, formerly of Bravo’s “Top Chef” show, as well as taste authentic Italian salumi fresh out of the MeatUp Food Truck. Viviani (pictured on the right) earned the “Fan Favorite” title after competing in Season 5 of “Top Chef” – which is probably the best way you could describe him, as he made it back onto “Top Chef All Stars” because everyone loved him so much. He also hosts the #1 lifestyle and food web series on Yahoo! called “Chow Ciao!,” owns and operates restaurants in greater Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami, and wrote the New York Times bestselling cookbook, “Fabio’s Italian Kitchen.” I interviewed Fabio over the weekend and discuss his favorite recipe, his favorite cities to eat in in the United States, and more.
