When Fabio Viviani was growing up in a housing project in
Florence, Italy, the center of his world was the kitchen,
where his mother, grandmother, and especially his
great-grandmother instilled in him a love for cooking and
Now he shares the best of Italian home cooking while telling
the story of his hardscrabble childhood, his success as a
chef in the United States, and the women in his family who
inspired him. In more than 150 delicious recipes, Viviani
takes us from his family home, where his great-grandmother
taught him to make staples like Italian Apple Cake and
Homemade Ricotta, to the kitchen of a local trattoria, where
he honed his craft cooking restaurant favorites like Gnocchi
and the Perfect Tiramisu, and then across Italy where he
studied each region’s finest recipes, from Piedmont’s
Braised Ossobuco to Emilia Romagna’s Perfect Meat Sauce.
A gorgeously illustrated cookbook, Fabio’s Italian Kitchen
is a celebration of food and family that brings all the joy,
fun, and flair that Fabio Viviani embodies to your kitchen.
Fabio Viviani was born in Florence, Italy, and became a sous
chef at Il Pallaio, a trattoria in Firenze, at the age of
sixteen. He now works as the owner and executive chef of
Cafe Firenze, a renowned Italian restaurant in Ventura
County, California, and Osteria Firenze, a Los Angeles
Italian eatery. He has appeared on Top Chef (season five),
Top Chef All Stars, and Life After Top Chef.
