About: Alan and Jackie King

Jackie and Andy King met at the New England Culinary Institute, after which they moved to Portland, Maine, to pursue their careers in baking. After training at the Standard Baking Co., they decided to move to the North Shore of Massachusetts to try their hand at the bakery business. A&J King Artisan Bakers opened in June of 2006. They have two children and a rotating cast of animals living with them. In 2013, they authored their first book, Baking by Hand, and finally got to take a real vacation (unrelated to the book). Whoo-hoo!
