Chef and restaurateur Fabio Viviani gained national recognition on Bravo’s “Top Chef,” where he earned the title of “Fan Favorite.” Through his seventeen restaurants (with four more opening in 2017), two wineries, best-selling cookbooks, Taste of Home cooking school, and Know How magazine, Fabio is quickly become a household name. In his third beautiful, full-color cookbook, FABIO’S 30-MINUTE ITALIAN: Over 100 Fabulous, Quick, and Easy Recipes , Fabio has crafted a wealth of recipes that can be prepared on the busiest nights by cooks at every level. They deliver all the flavor and authenticity of Italian cuisine and fit into hectic, modern lifestyles.
From Starters and Soup to Pasta and Dessert, there are recipes for all appetites and occasions. Fabio firmly believes that busy people don’t have to give up good food. His recipes are easy enough to boost the confidence of reluctant cooks. Here’s a sampling of what the book holds in store:
- Creamy Montasio and Prosciutto Frittata with Chives and Parsley
- Garlic and Honey Marinated Avocado, Mango and Roasted Chicken Salad
- Braised Pork, Sweet Date and Kale Stew
- Fresh Pasta with 20-Minute Sausage and Beef Bolognese Sauce
- Polenta Crusted Catfish and Braised White Bean Salad
- Herbed Lemon-Roasted Lamb with Cucumber, Pecorino, and Dill Yogurt

FABIO’S 30-MINUTE ITALIAN also includes recipes for making your own pasta (including a gluten free recipe) and a section on basics with recipes for herbed butters, focaccia, and vinaigrettes. Even with something as seemingly time-consuming as fresh pasta, Fabio has found a way to make it easy to prepare—with three minutes, a food processor, and the right ingredients, homemade pasta can become a dinner-time staple. Fabio also includes instructions for drying and freezing fresh pasta, making it easy to throw meals together during the week.
