Abel was born in Grenada, and later moved to the United States where he attended high school in Tennessee. He then attended the University of Tennessee and studied food technology. He first realized that he wanted to become a chef after working at Houston’s restaurant, and his favorite cuisine to cook is seafood. In his spare time, he enjoys volunteering at the soup kitchen and does this as much as possible. He would like to impart upon others his humility, and his passion for culinary arts.
