Paddock Club's Chisholm
Paddock Club chef and co-owner Lynn Chisholm has a resume as long as your arm, having worked in a number of well-known Milwaukee restaurants before diving in to open her own place in Elkhart Lake.

Creative, crazy cakes
Brooke Thiele dabbled into cake making, but it wasn't until she dropped out of college and took classes at The Wilton School of Chicago that she started taking the confectionary arts seriously. And not so seriously, too. Penis cake, anyone?
