With the release of award winning culinary artist, Chef Adrianne Calvo’s third book at the end of this month titled, #MaximumFlavor Social we wanted you to get to know her a little better.
“What an amazing lunch with Chef Adrianne”
We started with the Panko crusted Goat Cheese Balls which have a balsamic reduction and fig jam with prosciutto. This is one of the best appetizers that you will ever have. So many flavors running around your mouth. Amazing!!
We then split the Ossobucco which comes with perfect mashed potatoes and tastes like it’s been simmering all week building up this rich, truffle-y, deep sauce that you never want to stop eating. The meat itself is soft and yet formidable. There was more than enough and for the (very reasonable) $5 split fee, we both had an amazing lunch that was most memorable.

New Zealand lamb, Alaskan salmon with brown sugar crust garlic and sweet chili aioli, and wild corvina with Sicilian pistachio and truffle butter are not the usual menu items for a strip-mall restaurant in West Kendall. But for eight years, Adrianne Calvo, 31, has kept many of her 60 seats filled while writing four books, appearing on television and winning local, regional and national chef competitions. She opened Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar in 2007 just as the South Florida economy was imploding.
Filled with the love for food at a young age, Adrianne focused her efforts on her one true aspiration, cooking. At age 27, Adrianne has enjoyed an incredible number of accolades during her remarkable journey in becoming a nationally acclaimed chef.
