Born and raised in Wurzburg, Germany, executive Chef Ralf Wollmann was always involved in his family's restaurant. From a young age he learned his way around a kitchen. Ralf attended Hotel and Restaurant School Villengen-Schwenningen in Germany for three years. He than went on to work at some of the finest dining establishments in throughout Europe. He has carried this knowledge with him and now oversees a tremendous kitchen brigade and Western Canada's only Five Diamond dining room.
Chef Wollmann's mentor was Chef Willen who oversaw the two star Michelin restaurant Hemingway at the Hotel Victoria in Germany. Chef learned the finer art of food and also the dedication required to become a great chef.
Chef Wollmann moved to Canada in 1996 bringing over 20 years of all encompassing experience with him. He has worked as Executive Chef at Buffalo Mountain Lodge and Harrison Hot Springs. He also was co-owner and Manager of the local Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company. In 2008 he returned as the Executive Chef at the Rimrock for the second time in his career.
Chef Wollmann believes that passion is revealed with presentation and flavor. He possesses a desire to harmonize flavor, aroma and unique presentations in every plate he creates. Chef Wollmann's culinary team plays an important part of the process as he surrounds himself with passionate young chefs who are eager to learn.
After receiving an honours degree from the University of Manchester in the UK in 1998 I began my voyage of food discovery in Canada, spending 6 months as a steward in various locations throughout B.C and Ontario.
As I spent time in the kitchen completing simple cooking prep, my passion for food was ignited.
I decided to expand my horizons through travel and found myself in Courchevel, France. Once there, I submerged myself in the French history, way of life, and the art and science of cooking. I began to learn and respect high-end cuisine. After 6 months learning and experiencing real culinary character I had a brief interlude back in the UK before continuing my adventure of cuisine in Australia. I was offered the opportunity to run my own kitchen in Sydney, and readily dived into the opportunity.
Enjoying my experience in Australia, I soon realized there was a part of me that was left behind in Canada and decided to follow my heart back. I decided to settle in Stratford, Ontario for 3 years where I worked my way from Chef de Partie to Executive Chef. Ontario was able to provide me with new points of view but, always eager for exploration and adventure; I found that Alberta’s delightful scenery and bountiful natural resources were calling me. When an opportunity arose for me to come to Banff, with The Rimrock Resort Hotel, and showcase my talents in their 5-Diamond restaurant, Eden, I packed up my bags and headed west.
I love having the opportunity to utilize local ingredients and ignite all of the guests’ senses when dining here at Eden. I get inspired by the mountains and forests that surround me and enjoy using locally foraged herbs, mushrooms and wildflowers in unique ways within my modern French cooking-style.
