Willa Jean is one of the most renowned bakeries in New Orleans, and with good reason.
This May, only four years after opening, chef and owner Kelly Fields took home the 2019 James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef, and in a 2018 interview with Food & Wine, Nina Compton described Fields as a “pastry queen” that puts love into everything she makes.
While you’d normally have to hop on a plane to NOLA to experience Fields’ famous cookies and cornbread, thanks to Goldbelly, that’s about to change. The online food marketplace announced on Monday that it’s now carrying several Willa Jean products, marking the first time that the bakery’s goods are available online for national distribution. In other words? You can have them shipped right to your front door, no plane tickets required.
