“Duff” Goldman is a pastry chef, television personality, and cookbook author who was born on December 17, 1974. He is the executive chef at Charm City Cakes, a bakery in Baltimore. His work has also appeared on shows such as the Food Network Challenge, Iron Chef America, and Oprah.

Duff Goldman Career
He began working in kitchens at the age of fourteen, with his first employment being at a mall bagel shop. Goldman also worked at McDonald’s as a fry cook. Goldman has stated that when he was a sophomore in college, he visited Charleston, which he considers to be Baltimore’s finest restaurant, and was inspired to seek for a position as a cook there. Cindy Wolf, the executive chef, had a look at his résumé and found that he had no relevant experience. Cindy did, however, offer him a position making exclusively cornbread and biscuits, which Goldman considers to be the turning point in his career.
He attended colleges such as Corcoran College of Art and the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in Napa Valley, California, shortly after graduating from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He returned to Washington, D.C., to work as a bread baker at Todd English’s Olives restaurant after working under prominent chefs in California, including a stagiaire post at the French Laundry and as head pastry chef of the Vail Cascade Hotel in Colorado.
Goldman started his own business, Charm City Cakes, in 2002. Initially, he sold cakes out of his home in Charles Village, Baltimore, Maryland, with the assistance of two employees he hired.
