eliciously healthy options 

I'm Karen. I have always loved being in the kitchen, but never thought I could make a career out of it. After a couple of fun and successful bake sales, I took the jump and went to Illinois Central College to complete their culinary and restaurant management program. Since then I have been in kitchens here in Peoria and Chicago, and I am very excited to support my husband as we open up our own shop. 


My name is Ian and it is my pleasure to design tasteful experiences for you and your guests.  Having graduated from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and becoming a Certified Executive Chef  I am the recipient of:

2014 HOI Chefs 1st place People Choice Brisket Award

2013 HOI Chefs 1st place dessert competition

2012 HOI People Choice Gingerbread House award

2012 HOI 3rd place Gingerbread House award

We know the vegetarian or vegan lifestyle isn't for everyone But, even for meat-eaters it is a nice change of pace to munch on crisp juicy veggies sometimes.


Eat healthy, live healthy. Our on-site Certified Executive Chef will gladly help you plan meals, menus, or diet plans.
