About Chef Ron

 




Guests of Danny's Bar and Grill located at StoneRidge Golf Club will often tell you that they come for the golf but stay for the food. And they return again and again because Chef Ron’s menu of locally sourced and naturally raised foods combined with quality ingredients rivals the finest restaurants in the Twin Cities.


Award-winning Chef Ron Bohnert has been at StoneRidge since 2000 – the year it opened, coming from 19 years as Executive Chef at the St. Paul Radisson where he became well known for his innovative menu creations for fine dining as well as banquets, weddings, corporate events and meetings.


Chef Ron is a multi-medal winner in American Culinary Federation Competitions, with two gold medals, a silver medal and a bronze medal. He has won several first place awards in the Minneapolis Restaurant and Hospitality Show Seafood Cook-off, second place in a National Wild Game Cook-off and, most recently, his first place win in the Minnesota state competition for the National Pork Cook-off took him to the finals held in Orlando, where he won second place out of 28 chefs nationwide. One of the most popular items on the current menu is his Seafood Cook-off gold medal winning pecan-crusted walleye served with dried cherry maple pecan butter.
