After graduating Adelina worked at Campari Bistro as Head Chef, Scusami Ristorante, where she specialised in regional Italian cuisine and desserts. During this time Adelina also took part in pasta making demonstrations at Southbank and the Melbourne Food show.

Adelina then joined Enoteca Vino Bar as a pastry Chef to create a range of traditional Italian biscotti, cakes, desserts and handmade pasta. Her passion for sharing her knowledge led to Adelina teaching at the cooking classes run by the Enoteca.
