Le Grand Fromage is a one-woman show that portrays the story of Nicole Aloni's adventurous life in the kitchen — from La Varennes in Paris, to catering the Academy Awards to writing books and mixing drinks for Queen Elizabeth. Her marriage to classical composer Ami Aloni underscores the journey with love and emotional adventure. The show takes place during a cooking class where Nicole will actually teach and cook! In between, her life story bubbles to the surface with the aromas and sounds of good food and beautiful music permeating the room.

Annie Lareau is the co-artistic director of Seattle Public Theatre, where this season she is directing Vanishing Point. Annie has directed many productions for Cornish, including Nine, Wild Kate, The Children's Hour, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
