Song: If I Could Date Cheese

A clip of Jackie singing the tune she wrote for her eatertainment show Say Cheese: a tongue-titillating tasting of artisanal cheeses, wines and the songs they inspire.

The idea behind the song was if you were going to go out with a cheese, would you really want to date a Kraft single?

Lyrics by Jackie Gordon
Music by Gregory Toroian

One of the worst experiences, food-wise, is cooking something delicious, saving it for later and finding out it’s gone when go to eat it…

Overview: Seasons of Beef

When the Texas Beef Council wanted to create an outstanding marketing event for the Southwest Food Expo, they called Jackie Gordon, Singing Chef. Jackie created Seasons of Beef, an “eatertainment show” that promoted the consumption of Texas beef and the flavor-multiplying properties of umami, the sixth taste, which is found in beef three ways and is attributed to the reason beef tastes great with other foods with umami properties. Seasons of Beef included a custom song called “Oooo Mommy It’s the Umami Song,” a tasting of four seasonal dishes each matched to song, humorous banter, a cooking demo by spokesperson Tiffany Collins and a hearty game of beef Bingo with prizes!

Jackie wore a brighter-than-Texas–style hot-pink gown plastered with “I (heart) Beef—It’s what for ‘eatertainment.’”

Lyrics: If I Could Date Cheese

Seriously, if one were to actually go out with a piece of cheese, would anyone want to date a Kraft single? In this tune written for her show Say Cheese, Jackie sings about the cheeses she’d rather spend time with and what she do with each one…

Lyrics: The Fried Chicken Blues

Ever eat/make something really delicious that you can’t seem to finish, so you put it away and really look forward to eating it later? Only when you go to eat it, you find out that it’s already been eaten? Doesn’t that suck? Damn the kids! Damn the spouse! Damn your siblings! Damn your roommates! Jackie wrote a song about it for her show The Fried Chicken Theory According to Jackie Gordon:

“My Baby Just Cares for Me”—from the show and compact disc Black Pearls and Strange Fruit

Jackie sings a classic made famous by Nina Simone. This is from Jackie’s Black Pearls & Strange Fruit CD featuring songs from her one-woman show of the same name. The show is a “docu-singery” on the history of Black American woman singers and their struggle for racial dignity. It traces the history of Black American music from slavery to the Civil Rights Movement and features stories of eight famous singers.

Video: Say Cheese

A taste of “sayCHEESE!”: a tongue-titillating tasting of artisanal cheeses, wines and the songs they inspire. This “eatertainment” show is like an American Idol of cheeses and wines tasting where you’re the judge of which pairings are the best.

Lyrics: Reg Ingliss & Son’s Melbourne Cup Parody

I laughed when I got asked to write this song parody about the racehorse Tie The Knot—Jackie The Horse “Writerer”! It was so much fun. They gave me his history and their hopes and I whipped it all up to the tune of Mack The Knife. I performed it at a dinner that was honoring the horse’s owners prior to his run in the Melbourne Cup. Unfortunately, the race did not fulfill my prophecy, it was not Tie The Knot’s day…
