Chef Fabio Viviani

Italian chef Fabio Viviani was born on October 10, 1978 in Florence. There, he trained in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine at IPSSAR Saffi. He is best known for appearing on season 5 of Bravo’s reality series Top Chef and earning a place among the final four contestants. Before he was eliminated from the competition, he was named Fan Favorite.

Aside from his stint on the show, he works as the owner of Cafe Firenze in Moorpark and Firenze in Toluca Lake.  He is also an endorser of a variety of food products and is starting up a non-profit to promote healthy eating for children.

You can now see Fabio competing in Top Chef All Stars every Wednesday night on Bravo.

I visited Firenze in Toluca Lake for an article for AOL’s Toluca Lake Patch and sat down with Fabio for a short interview after he made us a great tasting menu (pics in next post).  We talked about his views on cooking, managing two restaurants and all of his endorsements, and his experiences on Bravo’s Top Chefs.
