Allie PushWorker-owner since: August 2011
I grew up helping my mom bake and cook traditional Italian food. I was given an unusual yet liberating amount of freedom in the kitchen from a young age (thanks Mom and Dad!). While experimenting with a vegetarian diet that my interest in local and sustainable food grew and has only increased with each meal. My 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 me to Small World. Since joining the business, I am constantly learning about bread and life. You'll usually find me in the kitchen just around sun rise or at the Public Market.
I studied painting and continue to make art when I'm not at the ovens.I run a one-woman craft business, Soft Shell Crafts, selling hand-bound journals made from repurposed materials in addition to making paintings and drawings. I also dream of exploring America's great wilderness by foot some day and believes that eating pancakes for dinner is the ultimate declaration of adulthood.
