In Searching for Maximum Flavor, Chef Adrianne explores various cities around the United States seeking out inspiration through culinary treasures, riveting adventure, and compelling conversations with chefs, distillers, winemakers, and every spirited storyteller in between, all to help create her signature “maximum flavor” style. The immersive experience truly stimulates all the senses with a variety of sights, sounds, and flavors. As Chef Adrianne and her team describe the tastes of the dishes and libations, the viewer is captivated as well with mouthwatering depictions of palate-pleasing bites and drinks. What makes this series distinct, is each city’s segment ends in one of Chef Adrianne’s restaurant kitchens, where she shows her followers how to recreate each iconic dish with a vibrant dose of “maximum flavor.” It’s a flavorful end to a high-energy journey, leaving the viewer craving more! Chef Adrianne’s ultimate goal is to provide viewers with the inside scoop on how to eat, drink, and play like a true Bon Vivant!


“I’m so excited to bring ‘Maximum Flavor’ to life through a YouTube series,” says Chef Adrianne. “I have traveled the country for years tasting, learning, searching for all things Maximum Flavor, and to be able to document this for my followers and future fans in a time when travel is still limited feels extra meaningful. This is a behind-the-scenes look into what goes into our menu development process, but also a celebration of our country’s food culture; a culinary road map of iconic dishes.”

The show launches on April 16 on her YouTube Channel with her trip to Puerto Rico as the first installment. In the episode, Chef Adrianne visits the famous Bacardi® factory, interviews expert mixologists, ziplines on the longest line in the Americas, and goes to Old San Juan mainstay restaurant, Raíces, to try “pork done ‘Maximum Flavor’ style” — classic Puerto Rican chuleta can can, fried pork loin and belly with crispy chicharron. She then returns to Miami to recreate the chuleta can can on the mainland in her flagship concept Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar.

In another episode, Chef Adrianne heads to New Orleans to enjoy beignets at Café du Monde, jazz in the streets of the French Quarter, and Oysters Rockefeller at the birthplace of the historic dish, Antoine’s, along with charbroiled oysters at Felix’s Oyster Bar. From the “Big Easy,” Adrianne returns to “the 305” to duplicate those iconic bivalves with her own dash of “maximum flavor.”


After the release of the inaugural episode (Puerto Rico), the four subsequent segments will be published and includes notable cities and regions and throughout the country: Austin; New Orleans; Napa Valley; and Phoenix.
