Some dude was... Nico Ladenis, first time i read about something called that way was in his book.
I think its around 100th time i say that, the only chef in the world who managed to write a book about the food only.

And I don't remember churchbells, or the money I put down
On the white picket fence and boardwalk, on the house at the edge of town
Oh, but I remember, the strain of her refrain
And the nights we spent together, and the way she called my name

If you be my Dixie Chicken....
