Although he’s vowed never to turn his bakery into a full-time cronut shop, Dominique Ansel is only human, and those hundreds-deep lines outside his SoHo shop won’t feed themselves with cronuts. This means that you — yes, you, with the “genuine passion and knowledge for food and pastries” and the “prior experience as a pastry cook of minimal 1-2 years” — might get to work for the famed Master of the Cronut-verse.
Grub Street ferreted out this ad on Craigslist for the position, which calls for someone who can stand up to a “demanding environment” and regularly meet the “highest of standards,” yet able to function and thrive in a “fun and casual” environment. (If you think about it, though, of course it’s “fun and casual” — a Snooty French Bakery would never have invented the “Sacré bleu!”-inducing Cronut.) So if you’re available immediately and can deal with early morning cronut hordes, this might be the position for you.
Instructions on applying can be found on the Craigslist ad, but just don’t be a Slugworth and steal the Cronut recipe. There aren’t many Oompa-Loompas out there who could staff Dominique Ansel’s.
