Algemene informatie

Cooking fine dining for true VIP rock stars in the very first Hard Rock Hotel in the Netherlands? Do you dish out the most innovative culinary creations, and do you enjoy being in the culinary spotlight? Then you may well be the new superstar of Café Americain.
Together with the Executive Chef and the Sous Chef you are responsible for the preparation of the dishes for all the food & beverage outlets in the hotel. Your job will be to ensure that the dishes only leave the kitchen if they not only taste good, but look good as well; be it breakfast early in the morning or the last dessert of the evening meal. As a Junior Sous Chef, you are of course fully familiar with the latest cooking techniques, food trends, and ingredients. You also have the skills required to passionately pass on this knowledge to your team and guests. Your mission is to improve the standard of the processes, products and menus just a little bit each day in comparison to the previous one. You know exactly how to efficiently organise the kitchen so that the daily operations run smoothly. You know how to motivate and inspire the team to deliver the best experience for our guests. This way, each working day is different, either for you or for your colleagues.
In the fifties, the Café Americain had already established itself as a meeting place for Amsterdam locals; today, it has acquired iconic status next to the Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American, which offers a truly phenomenal view of the Leidseplein. This well-known Art Deco restaurant is a modern brasserie that is breaking new ground with a blend of ‘class’ and ‘classics’. From early morning till late at night. Café Americain represents historic allure - according to the 21st century. Excellent quality, an accessible style, and brimming with personality. In addition to typical Amsterdam products on the All Day menu, it also offers a lot of local Dutch ingredients.
