My Top Chef crush is coming to my hometown

Yes, that's right... The Italian Stallion himself will be in San Antonio, TX. You might remember Fabio from season five of Top Chef by his charming, charismatic personality or by his great hair and fabulous smile. I remember him by this hilarious quote, "This is Top Chef, not Top Scallops!" which he said in response to a cheftestant who decided to make scallops almost every challenge.

Fabio will be in town February first promoting his cookbook Café Firenze. To get more information, please click on the following link: Meet and Greet with Fabio. You can also follow him on Twitter, like I do of course, at @fabioviviani.


  1. Thanks for your comment, Steph. I forgot to tell you that I made the Texas chili twice. It was really good. I just had a problem with the masa and warm water. I think the water may have been too hot. It just ending up being clumpy in the chili instead of blending well with it. Any ideas?

  2. wescravins - Yea!! I'm glad you made the chili. My advice would be to put the masa in lukewarm water before adding it to the chili, maybe add less masa or more water or you can leave it out completely. Thank you for your comment:)
