Prawn and Scallop Ceviche with Heirloom Tomatoes When I am looking for fresh and delicious recipes that focus on health and nutrition as well as culinary wonderment, I turn to Chef David Wells or Grandma Dave. I’ve known Dave more than twenty years and have enjoyed every moment of our friendship. During those years, I’ve watched in awe as he’s cultivated his passion as a chef into a business that also focuses on assisting people with any level of nutritional concern – from losing a few pounds to terminal cancer. Bottom line, he’s one of those incredible people who just makes your life better by knowing him. As a chef, his resume is packed with impressive accomplishments . . . from his education and instruction at the nation’s finest culinary academies to his days as a personal chef for celebrities and powerhouse CEO’s.
