|Allison Kave of First Prize Pies|
A Little Back Story (we love a good story)
Allison Kave founded First Prize Pies in March of this year. Her inspiration to start baking professionally came after she took the Best Overall prize in last year's Brooklyn Pie Bake-Off for her Bourbon Ginger Pecan pie. (delicious, and served by the slice at the Farmacy) Allison initially started selling pies by the slice on Saturdays at her mom's shop, Roni-Sue's Chocolates, and as soon as she gave the business a name she was off and running! While Alison has always been passionate about food, and baking in particular, her 'former' career was in the contemporary art world as director of several NYC galleries. Allison received her MA in contemporary art at Sotheby's Institute in London, which perhaps is why her pies not only taste amazing, but the look beautiful as well. After being laid off due to the economic crash of 2008, Alison began to reconsider her career path and decided that she would be happier working with food. She wasn't sure exactly what form that would take, but lucky for all of us, she began to baking pies.
