Alison is the owner and chef of Liberty Baking Co. A classically trained pastry chef, occasional wife and mother of two boys, Alison always found her happy place in the kitchen. Alison worked as an executive pastry chef at several local bakeries and as a college professor specializing in pastry and hospitality management. When Alison finally took the plunge as an entrepreneur to open up her dream business, she sought to create a bakery that puts a larger emphasis on clean ingredients and fresh products. Liberty Baking Co.’s menu is inspired by Alison’s love of Americana sweets, with pound cakes and cream cheese frostings. The result is an occasionally nostalgic and always naturally moist bite. When Alison isn’t concocting a new menu item or attempting to parent, she can be found having a glass of bubbles with Kim or binge-watching “The Office” for the 100th time.
Kim is Alison’s, ride-or-die bae. Though Kim’s professional title is sous chef, this jack-of-all-trades is the czar of social media and grammar as well. Kim is a classically trained pastry chef who has worked in almost all fields of pastry, from restaurants and bakeries to catering and coffee shops. Most notably, Kim is a staple in the White House pastry kitchen during important events. Her passion for small details and perfectly executed desserts is the ideal creative outlet for her list-making, OCD, type-A tendencies. Kim is an exercise nut who enjoys long runs (sometimes on the beach) and then ruining all of it with her second love: carbs! When Kim isn’t at Liberty, she can be found falling down a puppy rabbit hole on the internet, hanging out with her boyfriend, or bumming on the beach with her family in Bethany.
