We hit it off quickly, and spent quite some time talking about different bread recipes he has created over the years as an Executive Chef and a professional baker. Very interesting guy who I look forward to getting to know better. It just goes to show that when you give, you always get something in return. IMO, friendships are always the best gifts.
