Recipe from Kelly Fields of Willa Jean in New Orleans, Louisiana.

While growing up on the water in Charleston, South Carolina, Kelly Fields routinely dropped crab traps before school to catch that night’s dinner. Now, as the chef and co-owner of Willa Jean, the New Orleans bakery and café they opened with mentor John Besh in 2015, they apply that same spirit of effortless adventure to everything from fried chicken to scratch-made cookies.
