Wine Country Chef Fends Off Crazies

Michael Chiarello shares secret of avoiding confrontation

The lesson here is that when chefs like Michael Chiarello get to a certain point their careers, they don't always have to take nutty customers' crap: "When she was leaving she was angry and confronted the affable and gracious Chiarello ... Chiarello just smiled and told her she was going to live a long, long time, because she must have vinegar in her veins. The statement was so unexpected, the woman laughed at the joke." Guy's smooth.
