Johnathen Abram

Executive Chef

Johnathen Abram

Johnathen Abram is currently running our kitchen at Camp Young Judaea-Texas. He’s been working here for a little over a year after joining the team in January 2015. Although he loves cooking for the many groups that come to CYJ for retreats throughout the year, his favorite time of year is during summer camp, seeing and cooking for all of the excited campers. Johnathen received his degree from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Austin in 2014 and is currently living in Lockhart with his wife and children. He’s previously worked as a Sous Chef at The Cottonseed Cafe and Deli in Martindale, Texas and served in the military.

Favorite food: Pizza. All pizza.

He’s never without: Something clever to say.

Favorite motto: Every pizza is a personal pizza if you believe in yourself.

If you really knew him, you’d know: I have a tremendous and irrational fear of birds.
