Overview

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 good food.

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.

I have a bit of an addiction to cookbooks and buy them all the time. I picked this one up yesterday and read it cover to cover. It was a great read for the little anecdotes and personal stories. The recipes appeared simple and easy to follow. I can't wait to give them a try, especially the ones that have you make your own pasta.

This book is not just about fantastic Italian recipes, but really funny stories from Fabio's youth. Did you know he almost accidentally set his grandmother on fire? I've only made a few recipes so far but they have turned out wonderful! I can't wait to try to make my own ricotta cheese at home!

This is an amazing cookbook that brings to life the essence of Italian food: family.  I found myself reading the entire book cover-to-cover in one sitting, and especially loved the personal narratives interspersed throughout the book.  Fabio's humor, candidness and simple approach to Italian cuisine will inspire even the most timid of home cooks to try and succeed with these recipes in their own kitchen.
