Miami, FL, September 29, 2011 --( Filled with the love for food at a young age, Adrianne focused her efforts on her one true aspiration, gourmet cuisine. At age 27, Adrianne has enjoyed an incredible number of accolades during her remarkable journey in becoming a recognized and decorated chef. Coining the catch phrase, “Maximum Flavor,” Adrianne has managed to exceed to the “maximum” degree. From graduating top of her class at Johnson & Wales University, to now owning and operating her own restaurant, Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine bar, Adrianne has influenced the culinary community as well as the way people experience fine dining. Most recently, Chef Adrianne Calvo’s restaurant and wine bar was featured in the Miami New Times’ Best of Miami as having a “cozy, rustic charm.”

Incorporating many unique traits to her menu, The Napa Valley inspired restaurant offers a wide selection of her one of a kind “Maximum Flavor” infused dishes. Combined with her menu, she offers “Dark Dining,” which gives the diners an opportunity to experience food like no other by stimulating their senses through suppressing one of them. Along with being chef/owner of her restaurant, Adrianne has written two cookbooks, Maximum Flavor and Driven by Flavor Fueled by Fire.

Adrianne keeps herself very busy with different activities besides the daily operation of her restaurant. She is featured every Thursday morning on her very own Maximum Flavor TV segment on NBC6’s Live Miami. Through this show, she has been able to share with her viewers the savory and exotic recipes she has rapidly become known for as a culinary artist. Through her many TV appearances she has also been able to explore new recipes and perfect her culinary techniques on live television; a challenge she took on with great enthusiasm resulting in an incredibly positive response from her audience. After signing a multi-year endorsement deal in 2009 with Panda Kitchen and Bath, a Miami, Florida-based leader in the kitchen and bath remodeling market, Adrianne manages to juggle her already busy schedule making herself available for numerous appearances as the company’s spokesperson. In addition to her many activities as Panda’s spokesperson Adrianne is gearing up to be featured in the company’s new 2011 television ad campaign.

Adrianne has also participated at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival for the past 2 years (2010 & 2011). Working with children at the Fun and Fit as a Family event has been specially rewarding to her. Earlier this year (2011) Adrianne had the great honor of participating and filming an episode of The Food Networks original series, Chopped and it is scheduled to be aired in the fall.
