So, I’m kind of a food-television junkie. I could seriously watch Food Network all day and be the happiest girl in the world. I remember back in the day when we would visit my grandparents in Florida, one of the only television stations they would get showed countless episodes of the legit original Iron Chef…I think that’s what started my celebrity chef addiction.
My first experience meeting a celebrity chef was sophmore year of high school. My mom sprung me and my two friends out of classes for the day to go to Sam’s Club to meet Emeril. He was definitely one of the sweetest people that I have ever met. We made a giant sign for him with all of his quotes written on it (BAM!) and we got our picture in the paper. I was so star struck!
I have my list of some of my favorite celebrity chefs- Alton Brown, Anthony Bourdain (as you all know from my post HERE), Mario Batali, Emeril, of course, and more recently, Fabio Viviani.
I love the show Top Chef, and Fabio is probably my favorite chef who was ever on that show. He has a new cookbook coming out called Fabio’s Italian Kitchen.
Seriously, how disgustingly adorable is he?
Well, he is going to be making an appearance at our local BJ’s Wholesale Club in Amherst this Saturday from 11-3! I have to do wedding makeup in the morning, but you bet that if I’m done on time, my ass is going to be there.
Oh yeah, and one more thing, this happened…
Fabio and I are like besties now. True story.
