American Cruise Lines, the largest cruise line in the United States, is looking to add multiple Baker/ Pastry Chefs to our shipboard team as we gear up for the busiest part of our operating season on America’s rivers. Our shipboard team supports a combined fleet of ships sailing through various different itineraries across the nation from contemporary riverboats to paddlewheel queens for a steamboat experience.
We make it a top priority to offer a first-class dining experience at every meal. Exceptional cuisine is prepared by chefs who have extensive culinary credentials and training from some of the most prestigious culinary institutes. Using only the freshest ingredients, menus are inspired by regional and local specialties.
The Baker should have Culinary Expertise and experience to make a wide variety of desserts as well as Baked Goods, including Confectionary Work. Must be able to understand and appreciate the subtleties of flavor pairings and different taste, and have a good aesthetic sense for food and pastry presentation. The position is responsible for adhering to the daily matrix consisting of Desserts, Tea Time, Pastries, Breads and other duties assigned by the Corporation and/or the galley Executive Chef. The Baker must be creative and continually researching and testing new and different dessert and baking recipes to ensure that each guest and crew have an exceptional dining experience.
American Cruise Lines has 10 ships throughout our fleet, 3 of which are on the Mississippi River. The America and the Queen of the Mississippi are modern paddlewheelers reminiscent of steamboats from a bygone era, while the American Song is a brand new riverboat with contemporary décor and styling unlike anything else in the U.S. We have additional ships on both the East Coast and in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
