    Having been a top singing star, Dinah Shore became a pioneer television personality with “The Dinah Shore Chevy Show,” which showcased her distinctive voice and relaxed Southern charm from 1951 to 1963. In 1970, she returned to television as host of “Dinah’s Place,” an NBC morning show that covered homemaking, crafts, child-rearing, health and beauty—always with a song, of course, and usually a cooking segment, either by Dinah or her celebrity guests. Many leading chefs got their first national exposure on “Dinah’s Place.”

    Shortly after the show went on the air, Flo Selfman went to Dinah’s home in Beverly Hills as a two-week office temp to help with fan mail that was flooding in, and soon was asked to stay on. At the time, Shore was working on her first cookbook, “Someone’s in the Kitchen with Dinah.” An instinctive cook, she didn’t know how much of anything went into a recipe, so she would literally hold a measuring cup or spoon under the ingredient to record the amount.

    In this Zoom presentation, Flo Selfman, owner of the Los Angeles agency Selfman & Others Public Relations and a copy editor through WordsalaMode.com, shares her experiences in the kitchen with America’s darling, Dinah, and her studio guests.

    (Flo originally gave her talk on Dinah before the Culinary Historians of Southern California (CHSC) on March 13. We thank CHSC for providing the text for this announcement.)
