Alison Barshak of "Alison at Bluebell" was once chef at "The Striped Bass" in Philadelphia. Skipping culinary school for "a real college" Alison learned her craft by apprenticing and learning from her colleagues. Her restaurant in suburban Philadelphia features an open kitchen she says "So I can keep an eye on what's going on in the dining room". Continuing a trajectory begun at Striped Bass, she loves working with and serving fish. She and Mark and Francis had a great time on the show and you will too.
In September Alison, along with James Beard award winning cookbook author Joanne Weir, will be leading a culinary tour through Tuscany.
