'Top Chef' Star Fabio Viviani to Meet Fans at Amherst Store

'Top Chef' Star Fabio Viviani to Meet Fans at Amherst Store

In his travels around the world, Fabio Viviani has visited many places. But he's only passed through Western New York. That will change this weekend when he makes a special appearance in Amherst.

The Italian cuisinier and "Top Chef" fan favorite will participate in the grand opening celebration at BJ's Wholesale Club.

"I look forward to be at BJ's; we're going to be there for the event for the opening at the Amherst store. It's going to be great," he said in a phone interview. "We're going to raffle some cookbook, we're going to have some Q-and-As. It'll be a nice event."

Fabio will meet fans, sign copies of his new cookbook, "Fabio's Italian Kitchen," and, hopefully, have enough time left over to visit Niagara Falls.

"That's one of my top five wish list place to visit in the United States when I have time off," he said.
