Chef Iris DavisShe will serve as a Moo & Oink spokesperson for events and as an entertaining television personality. She is currently developing new recipes made from Moo & Oink products which will be tested at the company’s kitchens.


“We welcome Chef Davis to our Moo & Oink team,” said Dave Van Kampen, Chief Herding Officer of Moo & Oink, LLC. “She excels at originality and reliability. She will be a boon to our efforts to reestablish the brand with an unparalleled level of excellence.”


Chef Davis’s experience started in East St. Louis when she was a child watching her mother, a full time nurse, in the kitchen. By the age of 10, she was finishing preparations for meals for herself and four siblings.


She works closely with Chef Art Smith, who was Oprah’s personal chef for ten years and the owner of several restaurants including Chicago’s Table fifty-two. For several years, Chef Davis has cooked southern fried chicken for the menu item “Fried Chicken and Waffles” at Table fifty-two’s renowned Sunday brunches.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to educate the public that Moo & Oink is not gone,” Chef Davis said. “Moo & Oink has been such a staple in Chicago, and it’s very good news that the products are back.
