Meet our chef, Noel!
Noel Argote-Herrera was born in La Havana, Cuba and is the youngest sibling of four children. He and his family arrived in the United States in February 1970. Noel became the chef he is today by watching his mother, Adelfa, cook throughout his childhood. She never used recipes and neither does he! Four years ago, Chef Noel started Adelfa’s Comida Cubana in Boise, Idaho. Although he named the business after his mother, at the time he had no idea how much of his own story and hers would be interconnected through their passion for Cuban culture and food.
