Allie PushWorker-owner since: August 2011
Allie grew up helping her mom bake and cook traditional Italian food. She was given an unusual yet liberating amount of freedom in the kitchen from a young age (thanks Mom and Dad!). It was while experimenting with a vegetarian diet that her interest in local and sustainable food grew and has only increased with each meal. Her growing appetite to learn about where our food comes from and how to prepare food that is both tasty and good for our bodies attracted her to Small World. Since joining the business, she is constantly learning about bread and life. You'll usually find her in the kitchen just around sun rise or at the Public Market.
Allie studied painting and continues to make art when she's not at the ovens. She runs a one woman craft business, Soft Shell Crafts, selling hand-bound journals made from repurposed materials in addition to making paintings and drawings. Allie also dreams of exploring America's great wilderness by foot some day and believes that eating pancakes for dinner is the ultimate declaration of adulthood.
