Karen Small is the chef/owner of The Flying Fig, which she opened in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood in 1999. A self-taught chef, she was a strong supporter of local farms and farm-to-table advocate long before it became de rigueur. In 2010 she opened Market at the Fig, a space for artisanal sandwiches, local food products, eclectic wines and grab and go. Small and her restaurant have been featured in Food & Wine and the New York Times.
