Molly grew up in Cambridge, where a diverse and eclectic local dining scene sparked her curiosity to explore the world. After several years of cooking and farming in three different countries, she went back to school to earn a degree in Food Science and Agriculture in France. A writer—and cheese lover—at heart, Molly returned home to Boston in 2015 to work at Culture, the national magazine devoted to cheese. In addition to her current role there as associate editor, she edits all content for TFL and contributes to a range of publications on food, science, and travel.
An avid rock climber, hiker, cyclist, and skier, Molly thinks that all food tastes better outdoors—particularly on top of a mountain. “I’m a firm believer in picnic breaks and summit beers,” she says, noting that she often finds stray food (chocolate bars, radishes, gummi bears, and Gruyère wedges) in her backpack after a fun weekend. “Every adventure should involve snacks,” she adds.
Molly’s all-time favorite food is bread smothered in butter.
