Andy Lo Russo, The Singing Chef, is a best-selling author and cooking icon, thanks to the success of his timeless book, Sing and Cook Italian, and his unique cooking cabaret shows.  Growing up in New Jersey, he was extremely close to his large Sicilian family and recalls being in the kitchen watching his grandmother Grace 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, recorded several popular jazz standards, and eventually moved to California. There, with world renowned vocal coach, Giovanna d’Onofrio, he studied the arias and love songs of the great Italian composers. In 1991, Andy stumbled upon a way to combine his passion for music and food by cooking his family’s best recipes to classic, beautiful love songs and the Singing Chef was officially born.

Tickets are $125.  California Closets and The Lillian and Richard Becker Foundation courtesy of Barbara Hurley are the sponsors for this event.

Reservations:  Call (772) 231-5860 ext. 228.
