ALISON PRAY opened Standard Baking Co. in 1995 with her husband, Matt James. Charmed by the neighborhood boulangeries and openair markets of France, the two were inspired to bake their own artisanal breads and pastries and recreate that same sense of community in Portland. Standard Baking Co. has been recognized in Bon Appétit, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Travel & Leisure, and featured on National Public Radio.
