About Chef Jessica Nolen:
For Little Bird’s owner and chef Jessica, it all started as a child. Jessica, inspired by her Grandfather’s chocolate chip cookies, began to bake and absorbed as much knowledge as she could, whether it be books, cooking shows or classes. She immersed herself in the craft. The product of her new found obsession became abundant, so much so that her parents shared her treats with their friends. Her creations found their way to a local eatery and landed her the official start of her pasty career. “Desserts by Jessica” was on the menu and it was only the beginning.
After High School she headed to Philadelphia to attend The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College. Her reputation in her hometown didn’t transfer to Philadelphia… she had to start from scratch. A chance meeting with an old friend who cooked at Coquette, a Philly French Bistro, made her aware that Coquette was looking for a new Pastry Chef. She landed the job. Taking that position would be life changing. It was at Coquette where she met Chef Jeremy Nolen, who she would later marry and have a beautiful daughter with. Jessica and Jeremy were subsequently hired by a brand new restaurant, Brauhaus Schmitz. Her reputation in Philadelphia was now established and her future in the culinary scene solidified. Jessica didn’t stop there. Jessica and Jeremy published a cookbook and opened Whetstone Tavern. Jessica has now continued her push forward with The Little Bird Bakery & Cafe.
