Our chef was born and grew up in Badenweiler. He trained as a cook at the Grandhotel Römerbad Badenweiler. His apprenticeship took him to the kitchen of Alfons Schubeck and Heinz Winkler. The beautiful area around Badenweiler, as well as the extraordinary opportunity to significantly shape the outstanding gastronomy in the Park Hotel & Spa KATHARINA, finally brought him back to his birthplace. His culinary delights are mainly based in French cuisine. A clear aroma picture, as well as 5-6 good components define his plate dishes. The regional and international dishes offer fresh produce, a depth of taste and above all a great deal of creativity. To convey the enjoyment of our hotel and restaurant guests is Dirk Gmelin's priority! His favorite place in the hotel is therefore the kitchen. In a young, dynamic team, with fun at work and great food delicious dishes to create his great passion.
