Adel is from Morocco. He’s a chef whose been cooking for twenty-odd years now. One day when Adel was cooking for studios at Hollywood parties, he’d also fly across to Idaho for the Marriott hotel chain’s finest parties they used to throw in Boise.
One night the New Zealand consulate (based in Brentwood, California) was promoting New Zealand’s fine travel destination virtues and food produce in Idaho, when the New Zealand chef ate MacDonalds that day. He got food poisoning and could not cook for 600 guests that night.
Adel was in town and got the gig in Boise, thus saving the day. The event was a huge success serving up New Zealand beef and lamb. Always delicious meat. Since then Adel has been a friend of the New Zealand Consulate here in L.A. He’s also a new friend of mine.
What I like about Adel is that he stresses that at some point all people should seek to increase their knowledge of how finance, stocks and bonds work. Since he’s grown in financial knowledge himself, life has gotten so much better for him. He invests all of his money in oil, gold and oil and steel and more gold and then oil. Did I mention that Adel invests in gold and oil? – yet he still works too with his hands each day.
These days Adel doesn’t cook much but it is in him to cook as Morocco peeps like New Zealanders (Kiwis) must always be cooking tasty food, especially with quality meat. Adel gets up at 4am and reads up and checks his stocks related news. By 7am he is at his restaurants in L.A. His big focus is working up his Deli Bar franchise prototype deli/ beer bar, so that it can fly US nationwide.
Adel is very calm and uses his time wisely. Unlike me. Yet we are good buddies who share stories of where we came from before we hit L.A. He gets a kick out of worthy people getting more financially versant in financial knowledge, so that life becomes better for them. Thanks Adel. Adel reads novels on his Kindle each day between 2-3 when he can. People who read books in Hollywood, are always quite cool, I’ve found. Rock on Morocco in LA!
