In 2003, Calvo won ‘’Taste Down Under’’, an Australian culinary competition and 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. In 2004, she won ‘’Taste Down Under’’ again, and her dish was served to CNN correspondents and representatives from ‘’Gourmet’’, ‘’Food Network’’ and ‘’Bon Appetite’’. In 2013, Chef Adrianne Calvo won the ‘’Master Holiday Chef Challenge’’ Calvo being the youngest of the 14 competitors and one of two females.
