Josie Patterson

Pan, Executive Chef

Being in a kitchen has always been a passion to me. The thought of going in and putting the best ingredients together to make a dish gives me the most excitement. Growing up around food and my family always being in the kitchen is what has driven me to push myself and cook the best food I possibly can. I graduated from the Art Institute of Tampa and moved on to work for Disney, which was an amazing opportunity! My all time favorite food to make is Macaroni and Cheese- it will surely put a smile on everyone's face! I cannot wait to share all the special moments with the people that we come in contact with!

Shawnae Cook

Cake, Owner, Operations Manager

Growing up, an important mentor gave me really great advice - Figure out what you love, and then find a way to make a living doing it. I decided that I love eating cake. I discovered my passion for culinary in college while working as a chocolatier for a bean-to-bar chocolate company. The world of pastries and confections immediately stole my heart and I never looked back.

Maghan Moslander

Business Manager + Pastry Chef Apprentice

Working alongside Shawnae and Josie is a tremendous honor I do not take lightly. I have always had a heart for hospitality, the experience surrounding food, and the lasting memories a single dish can create every step of the way. 

My role allows me the opportunity to craft one meaningful career based on the combination of two of my deepest passions: compassionate service toward others as well as creating delicious and stunning food. 

In 2017, Maghan was awarded Woman of the Year for Central Illinois Business Magazine’s 10th annual Forty Under 40 awards. She was chosen based on her achievements, innovation, leadership ability, expertise in her field, and community involvement.
