Renowned cookbook author, lifestyle and entertaining expert Pamela Morgan has been tantalizing the taste buds of discerning New Yorkers and Hamptonites for more than a quarter of a century. Featured on the Food Network, Meet Bobby Flay and The Today Show, and Real Housewives of New York among many other places, Pamela’s special events and culinary company, Flirting with Flavors, creates a once in a lifetime experience for all those who attend her exclusive events at intimate, sophisticated venues in New York City and on Long Island’s East End.
Along with her exceptional culinary career, she is also an accomplished singer and dancer. In fact, it was her dream of performing as a professional dancer and singer that initially brought Pamela to New York from Texas. On Tuesday, April 16th 2019, she’ll be returning to her musical roots where she will be performing exclusively at The Laurie Beechman Theatre (407 West 42nd Street, New York City).
Is it a festive party? Well, sort of. Is it a foodie extravaganza? That too. It will be a heady, seductive and flirty experience for all those who attend.
Pamela toured the country starring in industrial shows written and directed as mini musicals, as well as appeared in national television commercials for Guess Jeans and Dr. Pepper. During that time, Pamela simultaneously began honing her cooking and catering chops at the New York Restaurant School. Her first business, Flavors Catering and Carry-Out, quickly became a neighborhood staple on West 18th Street in Manhattan’s Flatiron district. Counting Martha Stewart Living, HBO, Harry Winston, and Chanel as among some of her regular clientele, it was one of the very first places in NYC to have an organic salad bar. Pamela also worked as the culinary consultant for the Neiman Marcus food catalogue where she created strategic partnerships with well-known chefs and premier food artisans.
The author of the bestselling cookbook Pamela Morgan’s Flavors (published by Viking Penguin), Pamela has accrued many years of experience catering a variety of affairs, including notable charity events, exclusive dinner parties and weddings.
Pamela’s repertoire for her new show at The Laurie Beechman Theatre, which has hosted some of the world’s most acclaimed Broadway and cabaret performers of the last 30 years, includes selections from the Great American Songbook, classics from the iconic Carole King, as well as a couple of country tunes (after all Pamela is from Texas!).
She is also teaming up with local cabaret legends Mark Nadler as her director and Gregory Toroian as her musical director, plus she’ll be accompanied by a 3-piece band.
“I just wanted to get back to my singing roots and perform again, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to do this show,” says Pamela, who is currently at work on a sequel to her first book, Flavors. “Catering is also a lot like performing. First, there’s all of the preparation work to get ready for a party. That’s the rehearsal part and the night of the event is the performance. I love the energy of doing both.”
