FRINGE 2019 – Comfort Food Cabaret – 5K – Adelaide Central Market

Chanteuse and cook Michelle Pearson has built up her Comfort Food Cabaret over three years of touring to become the fantastically fun show it is now. Set in the Adelaide Central Market, you find yourself greeted with someone requesting any dietary requirements (rather unusual for a Fringe show!), some delicious local produce, and a set of cutlery.

Soon, Pearson takes to the stage (or, the kitchen), as she weaves us a tale of her relationship with food. From her childhood home(s) and the fond memories of her grandparents in the kitchen, to terrible dates that end at Cafe de Vilis, to unexpectedly catering her husband’s Record Club, Michelle’s memories come through in her cooking.

With the night’s theme being ‘cheese’, the audience are treated with a three-course meal whilst Pearson serenades with her spectacular voice. Pearson’s vocal range is amazing and you’re left truly stunned by not only her delicious cooking, but the evening’s incredible soundtrack.

A fantastic night out, I can’t recommend this show enough – pull up a plate and enjoy this enjoyable experience right in the heart of an Adelaide treasure.
