Get Your Sugar Rush with ICC Chef Instructor Toni Lynn Dickinson
Before Chef Toni Lynn Dickinson returned to her alma matter — the International Culinary Center — as Pastry Chef Instructor in 1997, she was working in some of NYC’s most exclusive kitchens like The River Café and Le Cirque. Her experience as Private Chef for the Italian Consulate in New York, and owning her own catering company — Amye J’s, had her creating and executing menus for clients from around the world. But, what many don’t know is that Chef Toni was dazzling audiences long before her career as a Pastry Chef.
A graduate of Smith College with a BA in Theater-Dance and Afro-American Studies, Toni Lynn Dickinson performed on international stages as a member of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater of New York. Chef Toni is no stranger to the world of show business — after all, there is a certain art to wowing clients with delicious dinners and beautiful desserts night after night.
Toni was on staff at the International Culinary Center (ICC), founded as The French Culinary Institute (FCI). In 2020, ICE and ICC came together on one strong and dynamic national platform at ICE's campuses in New York City and Los Angeles. The school and this chef’s culinary education legacy live on at ICE, where you can explore your own future in food.
