Internship Kitchen


Is cooking your passion? Do you like speaking to guests and would you like to work in the famous kitchen of Café Americain – part of Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American. Look no further, you have found your ideal internship!

Position Summary

No day is the same in the kitchen and that is what makes this internship so much fun. Together with your colleagues you start your day by running through the newest additions on the menu of Chef Chris Maingard. After that you will carefully start preparing the mise-en-place, under supervision of your tutor, so you and your colleagues can start the day well prepared. Each day the kitchen team of Café Americain create dishes which taste as delicious as they look. At the end of the day you will help cleaning the kitchen and the equipment so you can start fresh the next day.

In the fifties, this had already established itself as a meeting place for Amsterdam locals; today, it has acquired iconic status next to the (soon to be) 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 Amsterdam items on the All Day menu, it also offers Dutch ingredients.
