About Us

Susan Madorsky and Cherry Madole have been preparing food together socially and professionally for almost two decades. We enjoy taking your ideas and using our skills to create a unique and memorable event. We understand that sharing food is more than just eating. The pleasure of feeding your guests in a delightful, personalized manner is our primary goal – no matter how simple, elegant or whimsical. We believe food should be freshly prepared and we support Iowa’s local food scene by using ingredients from farmer’s markets and community producers. Your event can be special – from the first delicious cocktail to the last bite of sumptuous dessert – and we can make it happen.
