She’s been called an “Old World Bread Goddess” but Pamela Fitzpatrick didn’t start her career in the food industry. After years in the world of corporate advertising, Pamela decided to try her hand at something else – bread making. Her first foray into the culinary world was a 5-year gig at La Brea Bakery in Los Angeles where she worked on perfecting her craft of bread making.
It was a call from famed restaurateur Rich Melman that persuaded Fitzpatrick to move to Chicago to help Melman expand his Corner Bakery franchise. Fitzpatrick quickly made a name for herself and was one of the first people hired at Fox & Obel Food Market in 2000.
For the past 10 years, Fitzpatrick has been in charge of the bakery at Fox & Obel in addition to creating specialty and gourmet breads for restaurants like Everst, Brasserie Jo and Jimmy Bannos’ The Purple Pig.
