Head Baker Bartlett House
- Date Posted January 24, 2019
- Location Ghent, NY
- Category Culinary / Production
- Job Type Full-Time
Bartlett House is a destination bakery, kitchen and cafe working with local farms to create dishes that fully embrace the bounty we are surrounded by. Bartlett House stands alone on an acre of land on iconic Route 66. Once surrounded by a cluster of buildings, it was a flourishing hotel from 1870 to the mid-1900s, serving as the social center of the then industrial town of Ghent, New York. A national historic site, Bartlett House has remained quiet for decades--until now. Its communal spirit has been revived through high-quality food and high-quality company. A hub of creativity and companionship, the building now hosts a collaboration of masterminds--chefs, bakers, farmers--all dedicated to creating extraordinary dining experiences with the best of what the Hudson Valley has to offer.Job Description
