SAY IT ISN'T SO FABIO!!!




Today is a sad day for me---Last night, Fabio, the Italian chef, originally from Florence, was eliminated from the competition on Bravo's "Top Chef ".....it is one of my favorite TV shows, and this particular season, it was made so much more enjoyable because Fabio Flavia was competing---he is charming, adorable and of course very talented!



The final four competition took place in New Orleans and Fabio attempted to recreate creole style dishes... Grits with Sausage and Rabbit, Craw fish with Crab Stew and homemade pasta, and a Bell Pepper Martini, but I guess it was too sweet for the judges....not enough heat!!



He owns a restaurant, Cafe Firenze in Moorpark, CA....I think I might have to make a trip up there soon to taste his food for myself....and maybe a get a glimpse of Fabio....



Personally, I think that Stephan should have been eliminated!



Arrivederci Fabio!

I am broken hearted...Fabio gone...how can we ever get over it...I thought anyone but him should have gotten the boot!! Come on..Carla? Okay, maybe she's a good pastry chef but that's it...Hosea, too unsure of himself..I'm very sad....my daughter is even worse.

I wish he hadn't gotten the boot too! I hope you are feeling better. Congratulations on your award. You are very deserving. Have a nice Sunday! Twyla

My sister and I are in love with Fabio and every week after the show we have a recap of all his best lines! I sort of had a feeling that this would be his last week. We'll just have to wait for the recap show to get another shot of Fabio!

I haven't been watching the show but he sounds good! How can anyone with the name Fabio not be? :-)


Yes, Cajun cooking is hot and spicy -- I love it! The best food I've ever had was in New Orleans --yum yum!

Hi Linda....any thoughts on Hosea winning Top Chef....I'm getting a little annoyed with Tom, he's getting to ba an ass...Stefan should have won but Tom just didn't like him and it was so obvious....
