My name is Korine Adams...call me Korina!
I am a teacher by nature.
I have a huge passion for the science & art of baking.
My mission is to create a baking school for kids. Everything I do in my career is a step towards that goal.
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.
I am currently a Baking Instructor at Wilton School.
I was born in Austin, Texas in 1981.
The name BIDA comes from my childhood nickname, Bidda.
Starting my own company had been a calling for years that continued to get louder as I grew in my career. I started getting serious about BIDA late in 2017 & officially launched in 2018.
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.
Baklava, Strawberry Shortcake, & Tiramisu
