Meet Molly!

I love baking & I love art, so to be able to combine both together is a dream.  Although, initially, I followed my passion for working with people, in 2013 I decided to leave the not-for-profit world for a career in pastry.  I attended Kendall College, in Chicago, & was classically trained in all things sweet. After graduating, I moved to San Francisco to train under Chef William Werner at Craftsman & Wolves and then spent a year planning for and envisioning what Flour & Fig would become. After moving back to Chicago, I found a commercial kitchen & started pouring lollipops. I am thrilled to be pursuing this passion of mine, all while pursuing my passion for people, because, let’s be honest, food brings people together.  What have I learned in the last five years? Good butter makes everything taste better, sweet snacks are balanced best with a sprinkling of salt & fresh flowers make everything lovely.
