Hello and welcome to part 11 of our journey through North Carolina.
It was great relaxing at Down by the River Campground and exploring the surrounding area. On one of our outings we discovered Fabio’s Restaurant in Newland, NC. Folks what a place! I know you’ve heard us say this a few times but we can’t help sharing with you these wonderful places. Have you ever been at a restaurant where the owner loves cooking, loves people, loves his community, loves his family, has traveled the world and has a servant’s heart? Well if you have then you can understand why this place rates high on the scale of eateries.
As we started talking, Fabio began letting us follow him as he prepared lunches and chatted with the continuing flow of people. It was awesome watching this master in the kitchen. He shared that he studied Culinary Arts in Switzerland, joined the cruise ship circuit preparing dishes on the seas, traveling to Europe working in restaurants perfecting his culinary skills before coming back to the USA and settling there in Newland, NC. He summed it up wonderfully when he shared that cooking to him is about family and you always want to share a great meal with family. Well, we sure felt like we were part of his family this day and truly we thank you Fabio for the experience. We know you are following so keep making that special sauce because we’ll be back.
Well this is it for today. We hope you come back and see how the trip unfolds as we share more of the USA Through Our Eyes. Until then be safe.
