Meet the International Culinary Center alum.
It was in college that Brooklyn-born, Kierin Baldwin discovered a love for baking, and in her free time Baldwin began to collect cookbooks and teach herself how to make pies, cakes, and cookies. She worked for a few years in the photo industry before she decided to pursue her culinary interests full time and study pastry arts at the International Culinary Center.
Baldwin was lucky enough to begin her new career at Café Boulud and then worked as pastry sous chef at A Voce, and Locanda Verde. After two years at the side of James Beard award-winning pastry chef, Karen DeMasco, she joined the opening team for The Dutch in SoHo as pastry chef. She recently returned to Locanda Verde as pastry chef in 2014. Baldwin focuses on seasonal, flavor-driven desserts that strike a balance between familiarity and novelty.
Kierin Baldwin graduated from 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. ICC’s culinary education legacy lives on at ICE, where you can explore your own future in food.
