Allison was raised in a Greek – Italian household where interest in diverse cuisines was not only a staple but an exciting adventure. Her food-centric home environment set the stage for her future culinary endeavors. From a young age, she showed a keen interest in food and hospitality, not only by cooking alongside her mom and yiayia, but also by creating loving memories and conversations around the dinner table. As a student at The Pennsylvania State University, she began her journey into health and nutrition which led her into integrative medicine and further exploring the relationship between mind and body as it is expressed through food. It was a natural progression for her to turn her attention toward exploring her culinary interests and talents. Enrolling and excelling in the Health-Supportive Culinary Arts program at the Institute of Culinary Education her desire to pursue food as a conduit of both spiritual and physical well-being was realized. After graduating from culinary school, Allison worked her way up at prestigious NYC establishments, trailing at Blue Hill Farm, Loring Place, and Gramercy Tavern before settling into her position as a line cook at the Whitney Museum’s restaurants. There she was quickly moved up the line, training in both the savory and pastry departments while also maintaining a clientele as a private chef in Brooklyn Heights. Allison now joins Innocent Yesterday as Executive Chef bringing her unique background, talents, and culinary creativity to Innocent Yesterday as she develops new and exciting plant-based dishes for the Cafe’s clientele.
