for another booksigning of his self published cookbook. If you missed him at Borders the other week, you can catch his goofy sense of humour at Barnes & Noble. (He really is hysterically funny...there's a reason he was chosen Fan Favorite on Top Chef)

August 23, 2009 - 2:00 p.m. at
Barnes & Noble (829 State Street)

IMHO Garlic adds some delicious spice to things

but then again, so does Fabio Viviani. Put them together...and WOW! That'sa spicy meatyball.
Fabio Vivani, the Fan Favorite for Bravo TV's "Top Chef" will host this year's Gilroy Garlic Festival Garlic Showdown July 26, officials said. - Gilroy Dispatch
If you have not been to the Garlic Festival up in Gilroy (garlic capital of the world) you are missing a pungent treat. There were two volumes of The Festival's recipes...The Garlic Lovers Cookbook, Volumes 1 and 2 and I see that they have been updated.

If you are wishing to permanently keep away vampires, I highly recommend you head to Gilroy for the Festival or if you can't make it there, obtain one of the cookbooks to give you the full flavor of the Festival at home.

If only I could bring Fabio home. :-(

Fan Favorite Fabio

to get his own TV show? Oh, my! Gossipsauce is spilling some hot spicey news!
While we’re still mourning Carla’s loss to Hosea in the season finale of Top Chef: New York, we have delightful news that was confirmed to us by the man himself yesterday.

Fabio is getting his own show.

That’s right, Season Five’s breakout star, the Italian Stallion, Fabio Viviani, is coming to a TV screen near you.

Do you hear that?

It’s the faint sound of mouths watering and panties dropping.
