I am in love with a media chef!

I am absolutely mad for chef Fabio Viviani! I have Yahoo for my email and I get so excited when I see on the Yahoo page that there is a new ChowCiao cooking video. Even though the recipes are standards and the instruction is basic, Fabio Viviani absolutely deliciously cute!

I just love 5 minutes about cooking, with an adorable guy to make my day even brighter!

      1. re: petek

        Did you know she has a soldier (Canadian armed forces)?

          1. re: Midlife

            I think paulj meant she _was_ a soldier. According to her "Chefography" on the Cooking Channel, during college she enlisted in what sounded like the the Canadian equivalent of the US National Guard.

              Seems as if the only place that's documented is in the Chefography episode. I missed that episode and it's not scheduled again here for the next few weeks. Interesting background.

              1. re: Midlife

                Check it out if you get a chance. It definitely raised my (already good) opinion of her. She is an incredibly hard working and accomplished person.

                And I'll just add, even in combat fatigues, helmet and military issue black-rimmed glasses she still managed to look totally adorable.

        mmm, I'd make tea with her pa- .....well you know

        1. re: Kagemusha

          +1 - plus she's a very good cook and instructor.

          1. re: Kagemusha

            I agree. I think this would be a much more interesting thread if it were focused on Laura Calder instead of Fabio Viviani.

            Not only is Laura easy on the eyes and seems to have a great personality (she has Fabio beat, hands down in personality) but I find her food much more interesting than Fabio's gnocci and ravioli.

              Although not truly a chef I find Food Networks Claire Robinson ridiculously hot.

            2. ski g, I'm with you...are you willing to share Fabio? :)

              1. Ha, I love me some Fabio-isms. Did you see the video where he made ham-boorgers? What a riot.

                  HillJ Isn't he delicious! And breadchick I burst out laughing when I read your "ham-boorgers"! What a funny vid that was with all the times he had to say "ham-boorgers".

                  Lovin' me some Fabio-isms too!

                2. Watching him without the sound I got to thinking - this guy needs to hire Nadia G as his stylist! :) There something Italian in both of them.

                  1. I have a man crush on Fabio and not ashamed to admit it. He needs his own show somewhere.
