Get excited because award winning culinary artist, Chef Adrianne Calvo is unveiling her third book at the end of the month titled, #MaximumFlavor Social. The coolest thing about her book is that she is pioneering the realism of social media from the personal side of a chef. Culinary enthusiasts and fans will not only view more than 75 recipes but, also discover how social media has been a platform to connect with her followers, not just in the kitchen.
The revolutionary sensation will feature Facebook, Twitter, Instagram comments from her fans alongside some of the recipes that Chef Adrianne refers to as the “greatest hits” from her highly acclaimed restaurant, Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar.
I had the immense pleasure of trying some of her famous dishes, which are featured in this book. I was able to try her flavorful Gouda fried cheese with raspberry truffle oil. After that I dove into a true culinary experience with her lobster, which she pouches in butter, and then freezes. Then she adds shallots, basil, red chili pepper, and garlic. For the final appetizer I tried her shrimp on top of a sweet corn pudding – here she mixes both southern and French style of cooking.
For the main dishes I tried her lamb, which she brings in from New Zealand. The best part about her lamb is the top of it has a crust because it is baked with gorgonzola cheese and then she adds blueberries on top, so you get a sour and sweet taste all at once. If you aren’t into lamb then you are having her filet mignon with Dijon sauce and shallots. One of her biggest hits.
Oh and for dessert you must try her dark chocolate and Nutella bread pudding. You have honestly never had something so delicious before.
P.S. Before the holiday season, it will be available to purchase as an E-Book, Amazon, and book stores (Hardcopy: $34.99, Paperback: $29.99).
