Success Beyond Reality TV with Fabio Viviani

www.facebook.com twitter.com thelip.tv Top Chef creative whirlwind Fabio Viviani joins Media Mayhem to discuss life beyond Reality TV and the true way to use social media for your benefit. From developing a game plan for success that transcends ‘dreaming’, to the importance of a work ethic–recession or not–Fabio shows how an infectious enthusiasm can expand your business to new levels. We even get a taste of Italian and American politics. GUEST BIO: Chef Fabio Viviani has possessed a passion for food since his childhood growing up in Florence, Italy. At age 11, Viviani worked nights at a local bakery (since he was too young to officially join the staff) and, over his teenage years, held several positions in the restaurant industry, even serving under the mentorship of Simone Mugnaini, an iconic figure in the Italian restaurant scene. Between his training in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine at IPSSAR Saffi and working with culinary luminaries such as Simone Mugnaini, Alessandro Panzani and Saverio Carmagini, Viviani owned and operated 5 restaurants in Florence, a Farm House and 2 nightclubs by the time he was 27. Although a well-respected business man in Italy, he was ready for a change and moved to Ventura County, CA. There he opened Cafe Firenze in Moorpark and, soon after, popular Los Angeles Italian eatery, Firenze Osteria, North Hollywood. Fabio Viviani is perhaps best known for his appearance on season 5 of Bravo’s hit reality series “Top Chef” in 2008, earning

    I think a proper host should not have had wine (or whatever it was) during the interview. Even if she offered her guest a glass, or something else…if he declined she still should not have been drinking hers on camera.

    I have to say that I have nothing but respect for Fabio and was not in any way trying to be condescending. As for the questions being wrapped in my opinion, that’s part of my show. I like to share my thoughts on occasion. But, I am completely a big fan of Fabio’s and he just returned to the show for another interview.

    I absolutely love Fabio and think he is so fabulous that I am having him on against at the end of January. Hopefully, you will like that interview a bit better.

    I do not care for HER interview style at all. She should be more informed about her guest and she should not ask questions wrapped in her own biased opinion. I don’t care what you think, I am watching this to hear what the guest has to say. I feel as though she was also a bit condescending to Fabio. He was fabulous and did such a great job explaining how he makes his “magic” happen. ( Kudos to him accomplishing this in English, not his native Italian )! Great job Fabio!

    I think that Reality TV show can be very entertaining but soon of them look like they are being coached to much. Tell me if you agree. Samuelmnc @ howtogetonrealitytv
