THE SINGING CHEF – ANDY LoRUSSO – SELLS OUT A SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISER
Andy LoRusso followed-up with us this week about a sold-out fundraiser he hosted. The onstage, cabaret dinner-show was for over 250 patrons of The Spencer Theater in Ruidoso, New Mexico on Saturday, August 20th. Andy said he was happy to serve as host for the gala fundraiser and he said the Theater met their fund-raising goals!
Andy said, “The local caterers who work with the Spencer Theater cooked all my recipes for this event and according to the patrons, they did an outstanding job. I agree! The meal was served family style at tables of ten. This type of interaction allowed everyone to get to know each other better and become like family.”
“During my show, I demonstrated preparation of three items from the menu while encouraging all to sing along with me. The words to the songs are shown on large screens on the stage along with beautiful images of Italy. We enjoyed singing songs like “Santa Lucia” for the Venice scenes, “Sorrento” for the Amalfi Coast scenes, and “La Donna e Mobile” for the La Scala Opera House images.”
Here’s a quote from one of the patrons at the show: “Andy, I want to let you know that I have attended hundreds of Spencer shows over the years and yours just became my favorite by far! The Spencer Theater is a very special place and you did it justice with your singing and fabulous food. Please let me know if you will be performing anywhere within driving distance in the future and I will be
sure to be there.” – Katie K.
Andy told us, “My next big show is for the Stanley Theater in Utica, NY on October 7th. So stay tuned for some more photos of Italian-style fun.”

Andy LoRusso – “The Singing Chef” – is a best-selling author and cooking icon, thanks to the success and ongoing popularity of his timeless book, Sing and Cook Italian, and his unique cooking cabaret shows. From an early age, Andy has had a combined intrinsic sense of both music and food. Growing up in New Jersey, he was extremely close with his large Sicilian family and recalls being in the kitchen as a child and watching his grandmother Grace cook. As soon as he was tall enough to reach the table, celebrity chef Andy LoRusso was cooking meals for himself.
At the age of 22, Andy LoRusso signed with Epic Records and recorded several popular jazz standards. He later moved to California where he studied with world renowned vocal coach, Giovanna d’Onofrio. Under Giovanna’s tutelage, Andy studied all of the arias and love songs of the great Italian composers. In 1991, Andy LoRusso stumbled upon a way to combine his passion for music and food by cooking his family’s best recipes to classic, beautiful love songs. Thus, “The Singing Chef” was officially born!
These days, “The Singing Chef” spends more time on the road than at home as a sought-after featured performer at state and county fairs, Italian festivals, home and garden shows, and related trade shows, as well as casinos and resorts around the world. In addition, for his more savory fans, Andy caters “Sing & Cook” lunch and dinner shows for a steady stream of tour groups at high-profile restaurants across the country. His talents have been showcased by numerous national and international media outlets including, The Food Network, Donny & Marie, and numerous local morning TV shows, among many others.
Despite the fact that celebrity chefAndy LoRusso has a penchant for authentic old-fashioned cuisine, he has managed to modernize his act by recently launching a new CD entitled, CookingCabaret: An International Cooking Musical. The musical will soon be making its theatrical debut at performing arts centers and theaters all over the United States and Canada. Andy LoRusso is also in the process of producing a TV pilot that will involve reuniting families of all types by creating original family recipes, and singing and cooking together.

Hey, Y’All! I’m Paula Deen, and I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell y’all a bit about my life growing up in South Georgia, about learning to cook with my family, and a bit about where all my adventures in cooking have taken me. So if you’ve gotta minute or so, grab some sweet tea and let me share it with you, maybe give you some inspiration, and have fun doing it!
If your Southern food is authentic, it’s not pretentious! It doesn’t require a sophisticated palette. The ingredients are distinctly Southern, and it’s all home grown. The dishes don’t require split second timing, and they don’t fall! And your kids don’t have to acquire a taste for it, ’cause we just heap up good food on a plate and start eating! The staples of classic Southern food are butter, sugar, salt, pepper, hot sauce, vinegar, ham hocks, and to put it bluntly… fat! When’s the last time you heard someone saying they’re going up North to get some of that good Yankee food?
After winning the second season Food Network competition on April 23, 2006, Fieri was awarded a six-episode commitment for his own cooking show on Food Network. Guy’s Big Bite premiered on June 25, 2006 and was renewed for a second season that began airing in early 2007. His second series, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, premiered in April, 2007 (a one-hour pilot for the series aired as a special in November 2006) and sees Fieri traveling the country visiting local eateries. His third series, Ultimate Recipe Showdown, co-hosted with Marc Summers, began airing on February 17, 2008. He appeared with Robert Irvine in Dinner: Impossible in 2007, and has appeared on Paula Deen’s “Paula’s Party” as well as Ace of Cakes. His new show, Guy Off the Hook debuted on Food Network on September 14, 2008.
Guy Fieri is currently a spokesperson for T.G.I. Fridays, and is featured in numerous commercials which initially featured the recipes from Ultimate Recipe Showdown and now promote the restaurant chain itself.
Pat and Gina Neely are American TV celebrity chefs and the husband-and-wife team who own the Neely’s Bar-B-Que restaurants in Memphis, Tennessee and also host the Food Network cooking show, Down Home with the Neelys. When the show debuted on the Food Network in February 2008, it boasted the network’s highest-ever ratings for a debut show on the network’s weekend “In the Kitchen” programming block, and, according to the Food Network’s website, continues to be a top-ratings powerhouse. Some of the show’s hallmarks include kitchen gadgets fashioned on Gina’s favorite animal, the pig (hence their common catch-phrase, “it’s all about the pig”), visits from Pat and Gina’s family members, many of whom are also in the family business, and Pat’s thinly-veiled “bedroom humor.” (Example, when Gina asks him to pass the brown sugar: “I’d love to get a little bit of your brown sugar, honey.”)
Sandra Lee has a passion for simple solutions that create dramatic results in all areas of home life. She is editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade magazine, the host of two highly rated television shows (the multi-Emmy-nominated Semi-Homemade Cooking and Sandra’s Money Saving Meals), as well as a New York Times bestselling author of seventeen books.

With her trademark 70/30 philosophy, which combines 70% ready-made products with 30% fresh touches, Sandra creates inspirational meals and breathtaking living environments that are affordable and attainable, making her the foremost recognized advocate to every over-extended person.
