Fit for the Magic City’s trendiest neighborhoods, but at home in the corner of an off-beat strip mall in middle-class Miami, Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Wine Bar is one of South Florida’s best-kept secrets. Small and unassuming, with a casual, but intimate dining room just big enough for a handful of tables, the ambiance is both cozy and inviting. Led by none other than the culinary genius, Adrianne Calvo — who was inspired by the food, wine and landscapes she discovered during her travels through Napa Valley — her restaurant is a reflection of everything she knows and loves about wine country in The Golden State.
Writing a book is a strange and exhaustive process. The more I got to thinking about it; it must be even more difficult to write a cookbook- the measurements, the recipes, the clean up. Not saying that it wouldn’t be delicious, though. That’s why I had to meet with Adrianne Calvo, the local beloved chef/owner of Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar who released a cookbook in November 2014.
