Molly Baz Facts
- Molly first discovered her love for cooking when she was studying in Florence, Italy, in the late 2000s.
- In her senior year (2009-10) at Skidmore College, she and one of her classmates used to host biweekly dinners – the food was prepared with local ingredients – for their neighborhood community in Saratoga Springs, New York.
- Molly started her career as a line cook (a chef in charge of a particular area of production in a restaurant), working in multiple restaurants in Boston and New York City. Although she worked as a line cook until 2014, she had taken a break in 2011 to go on a road trip in the southern United States.
- She was accompanied on this journey by her father and they visited numerous barbecue (a term generally used to describe various cooking methods that employ live fire and smoke) establishments. During this trip, Molly learned cooking skills from many barbecue pitmasters (those professionals who oversee the cooking done in a barbecue pit).
- In New York, in 2013, she co-founded a catering company named Rustic Supper. In 2015, she began working as a recipe tester for Epicurious (an American digital brand that focuses on food and cooking-related topics).
- That same year, Molly moved to Bon Appétit (a monthly American food and entertainment magazine). By 2018, she had become the magazine’s senior associate food editor. She departed the publication in October 2020.
- In November 2020, she started a food media subscription service called Recipe Club on Patreon (a monetization platform that provides business tools for content creators to run a subscription service and sell digital products).
- Within a month of its launch, Recipe Club had gained several thousand subscribers. In December 2020, Molly co-launched a live-streamed video series titled You Got Snack’d.
