Food Network’s "Chopped" champion, Chef Adriana Urbina, was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. She started cooking at the early age of 12 and graduated with a double culinary degree from L'Ecole de Cuisine Alain Ducasse in France and Sumito Estévez’s Instituto Culinario Caracas in Venezuela.

After working for several restaurants in her home country, she took her first job as an apprentice at Michelin 3-star restaurant in Spain, Martín Berasategui,  and then worked her way through multiple fine dining restaurants in France and New York City. Her take on cuisine aims to be a celebration of the cooking and passion for food that she grew up with in Caracas, Venezuela and the international flavors and culinary techniques she amassed working in some of the world’s finest restaurants.



Her Global, fresh, and highly flavorful take on Latin American food offers a modern fusion of classic techniques using seasonal produce found in New York City.
