Alison Hein is a food writer and recipe developer who is fascinated by all things culinary. She enjoys mixing up a wide range of new dishes with a focus on fresh, healthy ingredients. Lacking a formal culinary education, she apprenticed at the knees of her grandmothers – one of whom was a health-minded vegetarian, and the other who cooked with gobs and gobs of butter. She won her first cookie contest at age seven, and learned to bake bread in a wood stove while living in Washington state. Alison has also had the opportunity to spend time learning about food in Germany and Japan, and has been known to sneak into restaurant kitchens to ask chefs for recipes. No wonder she is mixed up!
Alison currently writes a weekly breakfast recipe post (every Wednesday) for the Charles P. Rogers Breakfast in Bed Blog
In the past, she wrote a weekly recipe column for the now sadly defunct Bergen News:
