Chef Biography

Jeffery Cabiles was born in 1977 on the island of Lanai in Hawaii.  At a very young age, his father taught him the secrets of baking, and as he grew up he worked his way up the kitchen ladders of hotels and restaurants, all in different cities, but Hawaii was calling him home, and he eventually moved to Maui in 1992.

In 1995, Great Chefs caught up to him at the Kea Lani Hotel Suites & Villas in Wailea, Maui while he was pastry chef under Great Chef Steve Amaral.  The Great Chefs television crew were taping a new series for the Discovery Channel titled Great Chefs of Hawaii, in which Chef Cabiles prepared a Passion Fruit Sabayon (episode # 24).
