Adrianne honed her knife skills at the Mandarin Oriental Miami then in Napa Valley, California under Chef Thomas Keller and Chef Cindy Pawlcyn; it was the Napa experience that changed her perception of food forever and served as her muse for Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar and her cookbooks. Adrienne is all about “Maximum Flavor” and stimulating the senses; and not just in the kitchen but in her overall life as well with TV appearances and as spokesperson for Panda Kitchen and Bath but it is her foundation “Make It Count” that truly epitomizes Adrianne Calvo as she pushes life to the max and inspires all around her.C- Mitt Romney looks like he's on his way to be our next President, as Searching for Signs reports that more newspapers and neighbors are supporting him with signs.
