Chef Adrianne Calvo hosts a dining in the dark event once a month at her restaurant, Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar, in Miami. When we got to the restaurant – located in a strip mall next to a Goodyear far from the typical trendy restaurants popping up in Miami – the first things we saw were feathered boas, satin gloves, too many candles to count, and servers dressed in cabaret outfits. It was Moulin Rouge meets Vampire Diaries meets Halloween.
Calvo was voted one of the top 10 up-and-coming chefs in the state of Florida and was the youngest president of FCCLA. She competed in a National Pastry Competition held by Johnson & Wales University and received the bronze medal without any formal training. She enrolled at Johnson & Wales College of Culinary Arts in North Miami in 2002, and entered more than forty national competitions, receiving first place in ten of the competitions and runner-up in all the rest. In 2003, Calvo won Taste Down Under, an Australian culinary competition. Her winning dish was served at a dinner for the United Nations and its ambassadors, making her the youngest person to cook for the United Nations.
