Driven by her mission of empowering others to pursue their craft, Adriana founded Tepuy — a series of pop-up dinners and events around the world that serves as a platform to bring together women who are equally passionate about food. Her goal is to create a global community of empowered women who collaborate and support each other.
In addition to building Tepuy internationally, Adriana was the Executive Chef at the James Beard-award winning Nolita eatery, De Maria. She is also a three-time winner of the Food Network’s Chopped and the only Latin American female chef to have won the title. Beyond her work in the kitchen, Adriana is a passionate activist.
