Fabio Viviani

Has anyone watched the Yahoo sponsored videos featuring Fabio Viviani? The videos are very entertaining, and somewhat hilarious.

  1. Yes, and they are filled with "Fabio-isms" - very funny, esp the meatball segment. He's everywhere these days.

      1. Where can you see the videos (or buy them)?

          Go to and search Fabio Viviani.

              You sure were not kidding. My cardiologist would have a fit if I told him I ate mashed potatoes loaded with all those lipids. However, Fabio is always fun to watch.

          1. How have I never had red wine-infused pasta before? Has anyone ever done anything like this? I'm scared/excited.

              David Rocco has a wine spaghetti recipe on his site that I adore. Loving red wine is key to enjoying the dish! No maybe about it.

                I just fixed the spaghetti ubriachi (drunken spaghetti) last week and IT WAS DIVINE. It was even better the next day. I watched Fabio on ChowCiao make it and it is also in his new cookbook, Fabio's Italian Kitchen. I'm adoring that cookbook. Charmingly written and easy to follow.

                The drunken spaghetti was a complete winner; I couldn't believe how much you could taste the red wine in the pasta. YUM

                is another thread on the same guy. Though it has a subthread by guys who aren't as enamored with his cuteness.

                  There has never been a sense of humor in our home when pasta is being cooked in the 52 years of marriage. I miei antenati non erano i italiani (My ancestors were not Italian), and I've seen enough pasta for 3 lifetimes. Pasta dishes are serious business in our household, so I'm glad to see some humor added to the preparation of the stuff. If someone wants to start a vendetta in my house, just call that red tomato topping 'sauce' instead of 'gravy.' To me it is sauce, but in order to keep the peace, I call it 'condimento.'

                    FYI: You don't need an article in that sentence 'I miei antenati non erano italiani' and the article for 'italiani' is 'gli', not 'i'.

                    Butta la pasta and keep up the good work.
