“Hepburn Springs and Daylesford are some of my favourite foodie destinations. I am so excited that we’ve been invited to perform our cooking cabaret in the region,” Michelle says. “I have a real affection for performing in regional areas in Australia and the people that make up these communities have a special place in my heart. I am looking forward to meeting all the local makers and foodies within the community and trying as much local produce as I can.”

With her seasoned musicians, Australia’s singing cook presents a recipe of live music, storytelling and cooking featuring jazz, rock and pop from Etta James to Cold Chisel whilst celebrating local produce in this musical food cabaret sensation.
