Mary Nolan is a chef, recipe developer, cooking instructor, host and enthusiastic eater. She is currently executive chef at Bon Appetit magazine, where she’s worked since 2011.
With a fun-loving personality and an insatiable passion for all things culinary, Mary Nolan shared her sophisticated yet simple meal ideas and crowd-pleasing tips for memorable occasions when she starred on Food Network's Chic & Easy.
Growing up in Davenport, Iowa, Mary spent a great deal of time on her grandparents' rural farms providing an unmistakable appreciation for the origin of food. From casual weeknights to holiday extravaganzas, all meals were a creative outlet for the Nolan family. Mary's mother, Patricia, continually fostered her daughter's epicurean interests through hands-on experience in her own kitchen, as well as culinary-focused vacations and excursions.
While obtaining a journalism degree from The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Mary enrolled in nutrition and food science courses and worked at a local Italian restaurant - all of which continued to kindle her culinary flame. Word spread about her love of cooking and knack for entertaining, and Mary soon began catering bridal showers and parties for friends.
Mary also spent a semester living in the Tuscan countryside just outside of Florence, Italy - an experience that fed her obsession with all things epicurean. She relished the Italian culture and cuisine. The markets full of incredible ingredients and the unwavering Italian traditions remain a source of inspiration in Mary's cooking.
After graduating from college, Mary landed a job in New York City that combined her love of words and food, as an assistant at the premier culinary magazine, Gourmet, where she eventually became an advertising copywriter. She is currently attending The Institute of Culinary Education. Mary's desire to share her fresh perspective and her dedication to accessibly chic entertaining now take center stage with her new Food Network series.
