Rather, he is the kind of person who enjoys the act of devouring a tasty meal and sharing that experience with great company. It is the social accompaniment, which food inevitably brings to the table, that he thrives on. Hans hopes that the Upper Palatte will grow to become the primary resource that good friends visit in order to determine which culinary adventures will offer the most memorable experiences.
