Willa Jean is one of the most renowned bakeries in New Orleans, as well as the rest of the country. Its pastry chef and owner, Kelly Fields, took home the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef earlier this year.
The bakery’s sweets, which have delighted New Orleans residents and visitors since 2015, will now be made available for nationwide delivery. Willa Jean has partnered with online food marketplace Goldbelly to offer a variety of products.
Among the offerings will be Fields’ famous cornbread and its cookies, in flavors such as chocolate chip, chocolate espresso, and oatmeal dried fruit. Also available is banana bread, darkened and with a caramelized crust.
Every Willa Jean item on Goldbelly costs $59 (in serving sizes of 8-12), except for a banana bread and cornbread combo pack that costs $89.
Willa Jean has gained notoriety for its playful and nostalgic menu that celebrates southern sensibilities with fresh, local ingredients. Many of the recipes took Kelly Fields years to perfect, a dedication that has earned her accolades such as the aforementioned James Beard Foundation Award.
