In our quest for the perfect Italian meatball to serve with our homemade sauce, my husband and I stumbled upon Fabio Viviani’s Chow Ciao on Yahoo and, in a moment of profound kismet, we found “The Perfect Italian Meatball.”
Around three hours later, after soaking in every episode and polishing off a bottle (or two) of our favorite Merlot, we found ourselves still without dinner, our computer screen crazed with recipe bookmarks, and hooked on all things fabulous and Fabio.
What is it about Fabio that inspires us? Could be his casual ease in the kitchen, punctuated with each joyful step of unbridled culinary passion. Might be the crazy-good recipes peppered with his colorful history. Or his “sexy” style (and okay, totally the charming accent, too.)
Whatever the ultimate reason we swoon over Fabio, one thing is for certain, all of these qualities are injected into everything he makes his mark on including the Fabio Viviani Comfort Mat series.
The 32” x 20” x ¾-inch durable wonder adds subtle charm, slip resistant comfort and a celebratory spirit to your kitchen. Inspired by Fabio’s homeland, each anti-fatigue mat is puncture, heat and stain resistant and anti-microbial. The Mercato design is fashioned after Mercato Centrale, the central market of Florence and Toscana is designed to be a visual celebration of Fabio’s homeland. Both are available in tasteful colors of Mocha and Caramel, a suitable match for most kitchen decor.
After testing for a few weeks, my husband and I both agree the comfort mat enhances time spent in the kitchen. It’s easy to clean, great for staving off foot fatigue when prepping the perfect meatball, and always stays where placed.
Still sad that we can’t have the real Favio Viviani in our kitchen, but for now, we’ll settle for the soothing (and helpful) reminder of one of our favorite culinary talents.
