"We're not chefs; we're cooks," insists Derek Dietz, the 23-year-old Philadelphia native who will open Bocadillo, a Spanish-influenced sandwich shop, tomorrow with partner Andrew Minhinnisk. "When we're fifty, we can call ourselves chefs -- that's what we're striving to become -- but this restaurant is our playground, our secondary schooling, and we're doing this to have fun, cook and learn."
