Editor’s note:
Pictured is Andy LoRusso, the Singing Chef. I had the pleasure of working with Andy on several events where he prepares dishes from an Italian menu on stage while he sings classic Italian songs. Perfect for fundraisers and corporate events, Andy is one of the kindest celebrities I’ve worked with. For more information visit www.SingingChef.com.
