There are two good friends: one is a photographer, the other a chef. The photographer wants to get together with his friend and share his most recent work. The two decide on a cafe and meet shortly after. Upon arriving their conversation begins immediately. Somewhere in the middle, the photographer removes a freshly printed portfolio from his dark leather messenger bag and hands it to the chef. Silence.

The chef is so wrapped up in the images that he manages to remain silent for a full ten minutes.

"These are amazing!" The silence is finally broken. "Where did you take these?" the chef asks.

"Some were shot outdoors, but most were shot in studio," replies the photographer.

"You must have an amazing camera," the chef adds.

The conversation shifts several times before the two decide to leave. Before they do, however, the chef insists on preparing dinner for the photographer the following evening.

"So long as I don't miss Wheel Of Fortune," the photographer jokes.

They depart in agreement.

The next night, the chef prepares a full spread and when the photographer arrives they waste no time. They begin with soup, bread and wine. A light pasta dish is next, followed a heavier, yet fair plate of roasted chicken. For dessert: homemade limoncello.

Needless to say, there wasn't an abnormal amount of conversation being had during this feast. However, as the two sit fully satisfied, the photographer voices how much he enjoyed the meal.

"That was amazing!" the photographer said with his arms spread wide. "Are these your recipes?"

"Mostly, although I had to borrow one for the penne arrabiata," the chef replied.

"Well, you must have amazing pots!"
