Celebrity Chef Adrianne Calvo takes us behind-the-scenes, as the first chef on Foodable TV’s new reality show “Food as a Lifestyle”. Food is a lifestyle; and hers is orchestrated chaos.
“I walk through the door and I’m usually carrying a million things,” Calvo said. “I immediately go into the kitchen, start turning on all of my equipment, and then we go from there. The magic starts.”
Owner and mastermind of Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar in Miami and brainchild of all things Maximum Flavor, Calvo’s culinary creations are a reflection of the talent and devotion necessary to be successful in the restaurant business. Famous for bringing ‘dark dining’ to Miami, this young and edgy chef thrives under pressure and in the kitchen.
“I get to do what I love every day, create dishes that I love,” said Calvo. “I feel like I’m just an artist creating things or a kid in a toy store.”
Throughout the show, viewers watch the life of an award-winning chef and see what it takes to make food your life or better said, make a fabulous life from food. From Paradise Farms to the dining room of Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard and Wine Bar, Adrianne takes a strategic approach to menu planning and restaurant operations. Viewers will see her switch from gastronomic artist to cutthroat business woman in one of the world’s most competitive fields.
“Orchestrated chaos. That’s what I call it,” Calvo said.
The first episode demonstrates the importance of detail, showing how fresh herbs and restaurant temperatures come together to kick start a “maximum flavor” dining experience.
“My favorite thing about Chef Adrianne’s is to be able to share so many important milestones in people’s lives,” Calvo said. “To have them walk out of here saying ‘wow that was the most amazing dish’ really puts a stamp on my career. I can’t put it into words, because, it is so gratifying to see people get so excited about food.”
Filming for the show began in October. Be on the lookout for more episodes with Chef Adrianne, coming soon to FoodableTV.com.
