Chef Adrianne Calvo Goes for the Gold

Chef Adrianne - Chef Adrianne Restaurant & Wine Bar

Miami – South Florida culinary icon, Chef Adrianne Calvo is about to really shine – literally. During her wildly popular Dark Dining dinners, the dedicated and daring cooking queen has incorporated gold in dishes for blindfolded guests. Now, Chef Adrianne has been asked to travel to Washington, D.C. where she will demonstrate how to bedazzle gourmet food with 24-Karat Gold.

On September 29th the poised and passionate idol will appear on the D.C. segments, “Let’s Talk Live with Natasha Barrett & Melanie Hastings,” airing on News Channel 8 and “Good Day Café,” televising from FOX Broadcast Company, Channel 5.” News Channel 8 viewers will be able to watch her recreate the following golden infused specialties:

· “Glitzy Mason’s,” a parfait layered with Maple, Bourbon and Pecan
· Pea, Radish, Cabbage Spring Slaw with Gold and Dijon Vinaigrette
· Pear and Ricotta Fiocchi, Crispy Kale and 24 Karat Gold Truffle Cream

Since, it’s Bourbon Month there is a recipe for a Maple, Bourbon and Pecan parfait mixed with the mighty medal. Culinary enthusiasts won’t only have the option to try the gleaming mineral in the dark either. Her restaurant will also start incorporating 24-Karat Edible Gold in more dishes so diners can dazzle in delight.

Chef Adrianne said, “Gold has always been considered to be a mineral with medical and healing properties. It’s been used for centuries to calm joint inflammation and arthritis, treat skin disorders, and improve overall health and wellness, so it seemed like a perfect ingredient to add to the mix.”
