Life Stories About Food”

Available for Corporate & Non-Profit Events

A little bit of theatre, a lot about cuisine and how food plays an important part of our culture and lives!  

The show is now available for corporate and non-profit events and has recently been produced for the Chili Pepper Extravaganza, The Louisiana Police Jury Association, the University of Southern Mississippi Passion of the Palate fundraiser, and more.  Once the guests are seated for lunch or dinner, our host/emcee opens the show and introduces our headliners who present their funny, touching and endearing delicious life story around food.  The storytellers open their hearts to share their story with the audience and leave them coming back for more of the tasty tales!
