Back in 96 a bunch of us went for a harley ride and stopped at his place for a few drinks. He came out with the biggest spread for us on the house. I thought that was very generous of him.

He was a nice man!

Thanks Chef Tel for that great time and for being so kind and generous to all of us bike riders!

He was quite a nice and very jolly person. I had the chance to work with him in the kitchen in the Manor House on River Rd.
