Expertise
Baking Techniques, Food Science, Food Culture
  • Allie began her career as a food scientist, most notably working in the test kitchens, laboratories, and manufacturing facilities of Nabisco and Whole Foods Market. She's most proud of developing a line of Whole Foods' traditional and gluten-free baking mixes, as she's loved baking cakes since she was a kid.
  • Her passion for food comes from her innate interest in cuisine, its connection to culture, and the way it brings people together. Whether it's discussing ideas about how to improve food equity in our communities, eating her way through travel, or simply gathering over a meal with her friends, she is ever-curious and motivated about the way food connects us.
  • Through her writing about the intersection of food, story-telling, and culture, she hopes to be a thought leader and conversation-starter about the joy, complexity, and importance of food in our world.
