Hispanic Heritage Month is the perfect time for families to get together and celebrate their culture and heritage with good food, music and laughs. In honor of this festive time, Chef Adrianne has prepared a few step-by-step videos with some of her favorite recipes with milk which will slowly roll-out on www.FuertesconLeche.com. The recipes include some traditional breakfast foods with chorizo, while also incorporating a delicious solution for turkey leftovers this holiday season. Love sweets but want to lower your sugar intake? Her Double Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is sweetened with honey, which is 1.5 times sweeter than table sugar so you can add less. All the recipes include Calvo's personal touch of deliciousness her restaurant-goers love so much. Calvo also shares her personal story of strength and some of her favorite family recipes.
"I am so excited to be a part of the Milk Life Lo Que Nos Hace Fuertes campaign in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Milk is a key ingredient in many Latin recipes and a staple in Hispanic homes that it brings back many beautiful memories. I am proud of my roots and I attribute a lot of the great flavors found in my food to my culture. I enjoy cooking with milk to add more flavor and come up with unique dishes," says Adrianne Calvo. "I want to encourage all Hispanics to get in the kitchen and try one of my all-new delicious recipes with milk! It is sure to keep the energy up with high quality protein!"
Adrianne's love for cooking started at a young age when instead of running to the park to play with friends, she was running home to help her mom put dinner on the table. It wasn't until 2007 when her dream became a reality and she opened Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar at just 22 years of age. Chef Adrianne's is noted as a "hidden gem" or a "destination dining must." It was included in Yelp's top 50 local, non-chain Miami eateries and prior to that both Miami Magazine and Urban Spoon named it the Best Restaurant Miami in 2013. She now has four cookbooks under her belt, the most recent released in 2015, Play with Fire. Calvo also developed the "Make it Count" Foundation to benefit children and their families suffering from cancer after losing her sister to cancer in 2006. She and her team make it their mission to give back as much as possible.
