Comfort Food Cabaret: A Mid-Century Menu

Multiple Sessions


Australia’s singing cook is joining forces with Pony and Cole and Modernist Adelaide to present her multi award-winning musical food sensation.

Michelle Pearson returns to Tasting Australia with her popular fusion of live music, cooking class, dining and storytelling which is performed as the ultimate dinner and show experience. Joining inner-west institution Pony and Cole in its original 1960s café, audiences will enjoy a live band with Michelle’s hilarious and heartwarming storytelling through song and recipes that celebrate South Australian produce and nostalgic culinary classics by celebrated head chef Nicolle Hahn.

Comfort Food Cabaret has been presented at Tasting Australia as sold-out dinner events in 2018, 2019 and 2021, and performed at Copenhagen’s Michelin three-star restaurant Geranium, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Australia House and Freemasons Hall in London along with numerous food and arts festivals around Australia. Audiences have embraced Michelle’s personal tales, delicious recipes and heartfelt interpretations of pop, rock and jazz tunes.
