I am la Chef Adriana Martin, nice meeting you!
I was born in Mexico but have lived in Orlando for over eighteen years now, so I am a proud Floridian and loving it!
My passion is cooking, but my career is in marketing. I have been an entrepreneur since 2011 when I decided to branch out and start my small business with the idea of making an homage to my family’s recipes and the culinary legacy left by my grandmother, who was a restauranteur.
I’m a wife, friend, stepmom, grandmother, and dog lover. I have tremendous respect for the food I serve to my family and friends, and every day I learn different flavors and tricks to include in my food repertoire.
I love to read about food, recipes, and trends and experience new restaurants and watch famous chefs prepare food. Then I go back to my kitchen, the place where my cooking adventure starts.
My cooking inspirations come from a familiar flavor, a spice, the smell of fresh fruit or an herb, what I have available in my fridge, or merely a walk in the local farmers market to check out the fresh ingredients that will inspire my dish of the day.
My Chef Adriana motto: “simple ingredients can create masterpieces.”
My whole focus with this site is to share easy recipes that you can recreate at home and get you inspired to cook because, through the food, you can touch the lives of those you love.
I grew up in the kitchen, so I got my love for cooking and skills from my mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunts. These women have influenced my cooking style for many years. That is why many of my recipes are inspired by them and, most importantly, by my grandmother’s legacy. That is how Chef Adriana was born.
I enjoy teaching and recently launched personalized cooking classes and online inquiries on cooking techniques and anything you would like to know about food and its preparation. I think it is essential to cook at home and teach others how to cook allows me to preserve my family’s cooking traditions and dishes and inspire others to prepare homemade meals.
I shared extraordinary moments with my dear grandma Doña Alicia. She taught me the passion for making people happy by putting out delicious dishes. She owned several restaurants and catered for the Mexican socialité for many years. Great teacher Doña Alicia now my angel companion and to whom I dedicate this site and my recipes.
In Adriana’s Best Recipes, you will find my food inspirations, recipes, foodie travels, Latino culture, cocktails, stories, and ideas.
You will also get to meet my pets, as they are a big part of my family and everyday life.
I’m thrilled to welcome you to my home kitchen, delicious smells and flavors. Feel free to join the conversation by posting your comments; we value your feedback. You can find us on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

I made your instapot pozole and it was boMb!! I am curious why you didnt use any onion in the recipe When cooking.
I am glad you tried and enjoyed the pozole. I don’t think using onion in the cooking process is needed as I am using garlic. Plus, chopped onion is one of the garnishes too.
