Coming this May, “Meet the Regulars: People of Brooklyn and the Places They Love” is Joshua D. Fischer’s debut book, and the first to come from Bedford + Bowery. Here’s a new installment of the series.
Molly Neuman, former drummer for legendary lady-punk outfits like Bratmobile, has been connected to the heavenly bakery Ovenly since before it even began. A decade ago, she was in a supper club with future Ovenly co-owner Agatha Kulaga. Back then, Agatha talked of plans to create baked goods shop that would artfully blend sweet with savory. Eventually, she and her partner Erin Patinkin opened a place that was “inspired by the Eastern European flavors of their youths,” and Ovenly cookies and scones began appearing in cafes like Little Zelda, where Molly lives in Crown Heights.
