Wine Country Chef Fends Off Crazies

Michael Chiarello shares secret of avoiding confrontation



    The Dos and Don'ts of Good Sleep

    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.
