Bossy Buns

My name is Korine Adams. 

I am a teacher by nature.  

I have a huge passion for the science of baking.


I was born in Austin, Texas in 1981.  

The name BIDA comes from my childhood nickname, Bidda.

 I’ve been working in kitchens for over 25 years.  

I graduated from The French Pastry School in Chicago in 2008. My most recent position was Executive Pastry Chef at Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin, IL, where I built the dessert department & pastry team from scratch.

My mission is to create a baking school for kids & teens.  I believe in the confidence that can be found within the kitchen.  I want to create a safe place where kids & teens can express themselves through the art of baking & pastry just as they would through the art of music or sports. Everything I do in my career is a step towards that goal.

My current work includes operating my business, BIDA Baking Co,  writing & teaching baking classes at Wilton School of Confectionery Arts, and managing The Business of Food LLC's shared kitchen in Sycamore IL.  

Starting my own company had been a calling for years that continued to get louder as I grew in my career.  I took the leap of faith and brought to life this little labor of love.

 BIDA officially launched in June, 2018.

Follow my journey as I work towards having my own local bake shop! 


My baking style is all about flavor, super simple, classic, & elegant with inspiration from French, American, & Latin flavors.  BIDA is vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Chefs who inspire me:

 Anthony Bourdain, Ina Garten, Rose Beranbaum, Christina Tosi, Stella Parks, Dorie Greenspan,    

Rick Bayless, & Mindy Segal. 

Favorite Desserts:

 Baklava, Strawberry Shortcake, & Tiramisu
