World’s Largest Marriott Appoints Pastry Chef Cain
Orlando World Center Marriott has appointed Joshua Cain as executive pastry chef. In this role, Cain oversees all pastry operations for the world’s largest Marriott, including a team of 22 baking and pastry professionals for banquets and catering, in-room dining, and the hotel’s 10 diverse and seasonally-inspired restaurants and lounges.
With more than 20 years of combined pastry and culinary experience in four- and five-diamond hotels and restaurants, Cain is “an effective mentor and leader with a proven track record of success,” states the hotel’s announcement. Originally from North Carolina and a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, North Carolina, Cain began his career with Marriott in 2006 at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island in Fernandina Beach, Florida, before becoming the pastry chef de partie at the Ritz-Carlton Charlotte. However, he joins Orlando World Center Marriott most recently from The Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort in Orlando, where he had held the complex pastry chef position since 2014. “Throughout his established career, Cain has ensured consistent top quality pastry showpieces and specialty VIP desserts,” the announcement states.
“We are thrilled to have Cain’s ingenuity and creativity at Orlando World Center Marriott,” said General Manager, Ralph Scatena. “Executive Chef Eric Martinez continues to build a team of culinary excellence, and we have no doubt the addition of Chef Cain will sweeten our epicurean offerings.”
