Aislyn moved to the Bay Area last year, primarily to indulge her culinary passions. Wrestling with who would win in a Seattle-versus-San Francisco smackdown keeps her up at night (Seattle’s got thalis at Jerry Traunfeld’s Poppy and James Beard-nominated pastry at Cafe Besalu, but San Francisco has Michelin-starred Commis and the ever-popular Tartine Bakery – how to decide?). Current Westphobia: The word “foodie”, even though she makes-believe as a pastry chef in her spare time (obsessions include smoked chocolate and how to start a pastry CSA).
