In food and in people, most chefs find themselves stuck in a kitchen unable to engage and interact with their clients. My clients actually talk to me. We get to know each other as I cook for them.

Chef Wells, what an exquisite fine dining experience we had for our 41st anniversary dinner. You did a splendid job in preparing our meal. Your conscientious and professional demeanor was greatly appreciated. It was the best dining out, I mean dining in, moment in our 41 years or marriage.
