Molly Yeh recently moved from Brooklyn to a sugar beet farm outside of Grand Forks, North Dakota, where her husband is a fifth-generation farmer. She spends her days baking, writing, photographing, and navigating the new-to-her upper Midwestern cuisine, like vegetable-less salads and tater tot hotdish. She documents her adventures in her blog, my name is yeh, which was Yahoo‘s Food Blog of the Year for 2014, winner of the Better Homes and Gardens Best Everyday Eats Blog award, and a finalist in the 2014 and 2015 Saveur Best Food Blog Awards.
Molly’s work has appeared in Food & Wine, Saveur, Condé Nast Traveler, Food52, Kinfolk, and Modern Farmer, and last year she was featured by the New York Times alongside Sam Sifton in a video about the Norwegian flatbread Lefse. Outside of the kitchen, Molly is a Juilliard-trained percussionist and has performed with orchestras around the world, in off-Broadway theater, and as the glockenspielest for the pop-band San Fermin.
