Former Toledoan Ella Lynn Dudek lives in Los Angeles now but her roots are planted firmly in the 419. Dudek, a graduate of Whitmer HS, has catered food for music stars throughout the Midwest for years including gigs in Toledo, and Detroit where she became the favorite caterer for Bob Seger and others. Moving to Los Angeles Dudek began catering for American Idol, Holey Moley, and an assortment of TV and movie shoots. While doing that she also took her food truck into the area known as Skid Row and fed the residents there. When the pandemic shut down much of Hollywood production Dudek began taking her considerable skills to Facebook for a live version of Eats With Ella where she shared stories and recipes with her followers.
It's this concept she wants to bring into people's homes. A little cooking, some celebrity stories, and a ton of positivity.
