Great for Casinos, Fundraisers, Corporate Events, Bus Lunches and wherever 100 or more people gather for food, fun and entertainment!

A full 90 minute show with the very best of food and song. All of Andy’s music is on DVD with beautiful images of some of the most loved places in Italy. The words to the songs Andy sings are also on the screen so that everyone can join in and sing along.

Andy also invites a few of your clients and guests up on the stage with him to assemble one on the recipes.

Everyone goes away with a good feeling inside from the food and entertainment and can’t help but sing ‘That’s Amore” all the way home.

How The Show Works…

Andy prepares a few of the items from the all Italian menu from the stage while he sings to your clients. After each food demo, the courses are presented in a progressive manor until the whole meal is served. The menu is a four course feast and can be such items as a pre-set antipasti of crostini with roasted garlic, caramelized onions, and roasted eggplant, a special salad of toasted walnuts with fennel and sweet oranges over arugula, an entree of chicken Piccata, Scaloppini, or Marsala, and or a Sicilian Braciole, (rolled beef) with a home-made red sauce over creamy Polenta, and Andy’s Nona’s Ricotta cheesecake with fresh berries. All from his best-selling cookbook!

Andy works with your caterer and chef to plan the all Italian menu. He will also suggest and work with the food and beverage team to pick a few wines that could go with the meal and truly compliment it if needed.

About Keynote Speaker Andy LoRusso

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.

Since his childhood days in Newark, NJ, Andy LoRusso has had an intrinsic gift for creating both music and food. He was extremely close with his large Sicilian family and recalls being in the kitchen as a child and watching his grandmother cook. As soon as he was tall enough to reach the table, Andy was cooking meals for himself.

At the age of 22, Andy 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 invented a way to combine his passion for music and food by cooking his family’s best recipes to classic, beautiful love songs, and thus “The Singing Chef” was officially born!

These days, “The Singing Chef” spends more time on the road than at home, traveling around the world as a featured performer at state and county fairs, at Italian festivals, at various trade shows, as well as at casinos and resorts.

In addition, for his more savory fans, Chef Andy LoRusso 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, The Donny & Marie Show, and numerous local morning TV features.

More About Speaker, Andy LoRusso. . .
Though Andy LoRusso has a penchant for authentic old-fashioned cuisine, he has managed to modernize his act by recently launching a new CD entitled, Cooking Cabaret: an International Cooking Musical.

Chef LoRusso is also in the process of producing a TV pilot for a show that will dramatically reunite estranged families by inviting them to recreate original family recipes while singing and cooking together.
