Evan Deluty, of the restaurant Stella in the South End (left) and Will Gilson, chef of Garden at the Cellar, are two of the chefs who get together to cook. Sometimes they're in a home kitchen, other times, after the customers have gone, they lock their restaurants and cook up a feast there. You might think they're fiercely competitive; but these guys (yes, its mostly men) actually bask in each others achievements. One success leads to more, they say.
