Katherine Alberg (now Anderson) and Ned Baldwin grew up in the same Seattle neighborhood in the 1970s and ’80s. She was friends with the cool skateboard kids. He was an outgoing, adventurous redhead. They were in the same class together at Lakeside School. She, a strident feminist and scholar. He, a football player who was into fashion. During summers, she would sell cherries from her uncle’s orchard in Royal City, and he would paint houses. They ventured back east for college (he to Bennington, she to Harvard), attended each other’s weddings and stayed in touch — through births of children, moves and career changes — only to both end up in the restaurant world.
