Hello America !! This blog is dedicated just for YOU on this election day. Today got me thinking…what if I ran for president ?? Just forget about the rule that you have to be born in this country and have to be 35 years of age. I can’t help that I’m Italian and so young !! Okay maybe I have only one more year to go until I meet the age requirement. If I ran this country I would enforce that everyone eat nutella at least once a day, and cilantro would be completely banned from entering this country !! Only in a perfect world…


Chefs live by certain rules, in order to maintain a little bit of sanity in our CRAZY lives. Many people don’t know these rules and I think it’s important for EVERYONE to know them. Here are some chef RULES that all would live by if I became president !! I think that all chefs agree on this set of rules, no matter what political party they belong to ; )


Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we !!


If we ask what is wrong with your food and you say nothing….we will act like nothing’s wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.


If you ask a chef a question that you don’t want an answer to…expect an answer you don’t want to hear !!


Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are ready to talk about topics such as sex, food, or vacation ; )


Chefs are NOT mind readers : )


When we have somewhere to go for dinner, ANYTHING you wear is completely fine. Seriously…we will focus mostly on the food.


You can ask us to either cook something or tell us how you want it done…NOT both. If you know best how to do it already, then DO IT YOURSELF !!


Sweat pants are not a turn on, unless they are REALLY tight. However, pork belly is ALWAYS a turn on.


Yes and no are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question when we’re in the kitchen. We’re allowed to keep it SHORT.


Crying in cooking is blackmail !!


Anything we said to you while cooking 6 months ago DOES NOT COUNT in an argument. Any comment made after just two days is null and void !!


Cooking is not a hobby and we will NEVER think of it that way.


When we cook, it’s a no talk zone- just let it be.


We truly do not care about what’s happening with your love life. As long as you’re happy, it’s all we need to hear.


If something a chef said can be interpreted two different ways and one of those ways makes you sad or angry….we meant the OTHER one !!


If you follow these simple and easy rules, everything will be OKAY in a chef-run country !! When voting today, make sure you keep #FabioForPresident in mind ; ) My recipes this week start the beginning of all my Thanksgiving dishes- I give you one a day until Thanksgiving arrives. So you have NO excuses for not having enough recipes to choose from : ) You can find all my recipes this week on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
