Chow Ciao!

After a very intense day, I had to take a minute or two and post a blog entry on a lighter topic: food!

Yes, it is something that we all need, and it is in the news often in so many ways. Our First Lady is always trying to tell us what we should and should not eat, while her husband is off eating whatever he pleases -- or not!

I thought I would share with you one of my favorite celebrity chefs -- Fabio Viviani. If you watch Top Chef on Bravo Channel you will recognize him.

 Oops! Wrong Fabio!

Here's the right Fabio:

Chef Fabio now has a weekly segment on Yahoo! called Chow Ciao! since he is Italian.


I thought I would link you to a couple of episodes, and then you can explore more when you have time. Fabio is a hoot!
 
(1) Fabio is with Miss Universe and they are cooking the Perfect Bolognese sauce. Listen for the cool tip on how to get rid of garlic and onion smell from your hands!


(2) If you only have time for ONE Chow Ciao episode, this is THE one to watch. It is the BEST ONE – listen for the way Fabio says “hambooger”.

TIP: Add short ribs to ground beef (80%-20%)
This food item is the one that got him kicked off Top Chef TWICE!

Ouch!
