Comfort Food Cabaret - Fundraiser for Conservation SA

Hosted by ConservationSA

Comfort Food Cabaret Fundraiser

Book now to attend this delicious evening supporting your Conservation SA!
A huge shout out of thanks to Michelle Pearson, who is kindly donating all proceeds from ticket sales for this preview event to Conservation SA and The Joinery.  Please come along, join us and throw your support behind Michelle and her team. To get an idea of what Comfort Food Cabaret looks/sounds like please check out their opening number online or head to Michelle's Facebook music page or her Instagram page and look for #comfortfoodcabaret.

Wednesday 21 February at 7pm / Doors open at 6:30pm / show runs for 80 mins

Australia’s very own singing cook, Michelle Pearson, returns to the Adelaide Fringe with her award-winning musical food experience, Comfort Food Cabaret. 

Audience members will learn how to make (and taste) each recipe, learn about the local produce and where to buy it, while being serenaded by the soulful songstress as she cooks for you.

After sell-out seasons at the 2017 Adelaide Fringe and 2017 Melbourne Fringe, Michelle returns to the 2018 Adelaide Fringe with new recipes, songs and stories to share during a month-long season at her new venue, The Joinery. 

Pearson’s Comfort Food Cabaret is a truly unique food, music and cabaret experience which walks a line between cooking demo, supper club and cabaret performance. The popular show celebrates comfort food, enjoying the simple pleasures in life, SA produce and buying local, and the connections that food and dining leads us to. 


Michelle will also share some deeply personal stories of love, loss and family. The stories and songs are linked to a three-course meal which Michelle cooks and the audience samples during the performance. 

Drinks can be purchased from the bar.​

​Most dietary requirements can be catered for but we need to know these in advance. Please email with any dietary requirements.  This is a taste experience event and is not intended as a full dinner.
