Texas-born, lifelong baker Molly Wilkinson traded a career in digital marketing to follow her dream of studying French pastry at Paris’s prestigious Le Cordon Bleu. Today, she teaches fun and accessible pastry classes online and out of her beautiful home in Versailles.


For our May/June 21 issue, Molly shared with us four deliciously sweet recipes from her first cookbook – French Pastry Made Simple – which was officially released this past week. A no-fuss and easy-to-follow guide to the delicious art of French-inspired baking, it offers fool-proof recipes for classic pâtisserie such as macarons, éclairs, tarts and so many more!
