Hi My name is Abyssinia. It’s a pleasure to virtually meet you with hopes to be your new favorite personal chef! Let me tell you a little about myself, I was born in New York and raised in Florida. I started cooking at a very young age, always being drawn to the kitchen I’d say i’ve picked up a few skills.
I received a bachelors degree in Culinary Arts & Food service management from Johnson & Wales University. During my time at JWU I also studied pastry arts. Eager to learn every aspect of the culinary world, I traveled to Germany & studied wine. Since then, New York has welcomed me back home & I am currently working as a personal chef serving families in New York City & New Jersey.
Over the years I’ve trained in some of the best restaurants & hotels in Miami & New York. With a Caribbean background and a love for bright colors, fruits & vegetables, a lot of my food is drawn in an artistic direction. I love to be vibrant & playful with the dishes I create. In my past time I find myself recipe testing, always looking for ways to wow my next client. I am capable of preparing various cuisines. Some of my favorites are Caribbean, Mexican, Southern & Italian. Dietary restrictions? Not a problem, I would love to create a menu for you!
