Today: LaDawn Driscoll of Liberty Market
Since 2013 LaDawn Driscoll has been the creative force behind all things pastry at Liberty Market in Gilbert. And like the chef, the pastries at the popular neighborhood eatery — which range from banana cream pie and kouign amann to chocolate cake and Salt River Bars — are known for being ever-changing and always inventive. Before joining the Liberty Market team, the Pie Social veteran worked for The Herb Box, but the move to one of Gilbert's best loved restaurant's brings things full circle for Driscoll, who's parents lived close to where the former grocery store is located.
