Meet Naomi Tolbert. Naomi, 26-year-old, is the owner of Enameled Grace Pastries and a 2018 graduate of the University of Chicago with a Masters of Arts degree in International Relations.
She was raised by her great grandmother and grandfather after her mother passed away when she was 10-years-old. Her father has not been involved in her life. Naomi is a first-generation college female student to complete a bachelor or master’s degree.
She is very passionate about cooking and baking and hopes to open a restaurant and bakery in the Hyde Park area. Her great grandmother has always been a good baker, and she’s glad that the “baking genes” was passed down to her.
According to Naomi, “Enameled Grace will one day supply our communities with majority plant-based food options that are easily accessible, comfort foods that are also affordable.”
What does she love about Hyde Park, Naomi said, “I love the energy and diversity of Hyde Park.”
Stop by to sample and purchase. Naomi has a table setup at 53rd Street/Blackstone Avenue on Thursday-Sunday: 12:00pm – 4:00pm.
