Chef Adrianne Calvo

Since 2007, Adrianne Calvo has taken the South Florida food scene by storm, firmly establishing herself as a celebrity chef, author, television person-ality, and restaurateur. To date, she has produced four cookbooks: Maximum Flavor (2005), Chef Adri-anne: Driven by Flavor, Fueled by Fire (2008), #Maxi-mumFlavorSocial (2014), and Play With Fire (2015), with a fifth, The A-List, currently in production. Addi-tionally, her restaurant, the award-winning Chef Adri-anne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar, has dazzled patrons with its delicious rotating menu and its notable “Dark Dining” event, in which guests get to experience a heightened sense of taste by being blindfolded during their meals. Among the restaurant’s other acco-lades are being named one of the U.S.’s 15 most unique restaurants by Zagat in 2016, being selected as one of the 17 most important restaurants in Miami by Thrillist, being named in the Miami Food Bucket List, also by Thrillist, and winning best chef (2014, 2016, 2018) and best restaurant (2014, 2017) in South Miami-Dade during the Readers’ Choice Awards.

Though Chef Adrianne entered the celebrity food world at a very young age, it did not stop her from quickly making a name for herself. She became the youngest person to cook for the United Nations and its ambassadors, while also displaying her expertise for CNN correspondents, competing in Food Network’s Chopped and Beat Bobby Flay, and being featured in top food publications like Gourmet, Bon Appetite, and Saveur. Additionally, Adrianne and her work has drawn the interest of large corporate entities in several dierent fields, as she currently endorses Reebok and Sprint, to name a few. She maintains a regular position as NBC’s cooking expert for their segment “6 in the Mix”, in which she displays some of her best dishes while oering her tutelage as to how to create them. Never shying away from giving back, Chef Adrianne has been cooking for families and patients at St. Jude’s Hospital as part of her Make It Count foundation since 2007.

If recent success is any indicator as to where Chef Adrianne’s career is heading, things are certainly looking up. In 2018, she was once again named Miami’s Best Chef by the New Times, and was award-ed the Best Bite of the Beach during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Her signature Maximum Flavor style has delighted her fans for over a decade now, and will continue to do so in the South Florida community and beyond.
