chef affron's story
Affron's cooking adventures started at a young age in Harlem, New York watching his mother cook for his family. His passion carried on after joining the Navy as he cooked for small parties and cookouts. His passion was to attend culinary arts school. Soon after retiring from the Navy in Hawaii he became a fire inspector and inspected various restaurants and kitchens which gave him the opportunity to speak with numerous chefs and pick their brains about becoming a great chef and owning a cooking business.

Chef Affron learned how to cook from his late-mother Beatrice in a small kitchen in a Harlem apartment.
