“We had Chef Russ come to our house for my 6-year old's birthday party. It was fantastic and Chef was great with the kids. My little guy has asked for him to come back and cook again many times. Definitely recommend him! :)
“I've used Chef Russ three times now. First time he cooked for just our family. We threw him what we thought was a curve ball, asking for something you can't get at most restaurants: Ossu Bucco (beef, not pork), and this was absolutely not a stretch for him. He came, cooked and served a fabuolous dinner, and then cleaned up. :) Next we had a small (8 people) dinner party and that was the truly one of the most amazing dinner parties ever. Everyone was blown...
“Chef Russ has provided amazing meals for us. We are very picky and only like clean eating. Chef has provided not only variety, but also great tasting meals. The convenience of coming home from work and having the weeks meals waiting is the best! If you are busy people without time to shop, prepare and cook healthy meals I recommend Chef Russ. You will love it!
“We were looking for something different to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. I found Chef Russ on the internet. All his positive reviews made the decision easy. We had 13 for a formal dinner with a choice of steak or salmon. Chef Russ and his assistants came out and just did everything! The food was amazing. Fresh and well prepared. Russ encourages questions and likes to talk about food and cooking....he's no food snob! He'll even share his recipes. His assistants set up the tables with linens...
“I was recently in a wedding on Lake Tahoe. Chef Russ and his team did a fantastic job. They served a cheese and meat appetizer plate, rosemary chicken, roasted vegetables, a gorgonzola salad and the most AMAZING smashed russet and garlic yam potatoes. They were so delicious!! The whole team was fantastic and very nice. They even made the bride and us bridesmaids a little appetizer plate while we were waiting to go down the aisle. They cleaned up and even left us with all the left overs. YUM!...
“I was the president of Folsom BNI, a weekly networking chapter. We hired Chef Russ to provide lunch for our 30+ members and visitors each week and everyone LOVED his meals! We looked forward to a great variety of hot lunches and continue to refer clients to him and hire him back for special events. We had a strict budget and time frame and he handled everything beyond our expectations.
“We enjoyed a private dinner catered by Russ - he offered a variety of local ingredients that left us in awe. We will call him first when considering future gatherings with friends and family. The main items were excellent, but it was the appetizers and sauces that put the meal over the top - fresh brochette with locally grown toppings, a savory goat cheese pizza, a wedge of fresh brie with the pear and arugula salad, and the sauce topping the filet. Not only was the food...
“Myself and friends had the pleasure of meeting Chef Russ a few months ago on a Living Social deal. He was great fun, cooked with us an amazing dinner and his side kick was a doll. We now have developed a great friendship with him and cooked some recipes he has given us for dinner. I would fully recommend his service if you want to join in cooking with him, or just sit back and have a great bottle of wine and watch him do his magic. He is a great guy.
“Chef russ is simply the man. Decided to try him due to all the perfect yelp reviews - glad we did!! He is truly a 5 star guy - I could go on about how we loved all his dishes (wow the chicken!!!!) / what a great guy he is but I will leave it short and sweet and say - contact him and book him ASAP - you won't regret it!!!!!!!! Cheers!!!!!!!!
“Chef Russ and his fabulous helper did a cooking class for us in our home through a Living Social deal. We had the option of either rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands dirty along side him, or sitting back and relaxing with a bottle of wine while being schooled. It had been a long week for us so we chose to relax and watch Chef in action. We learned some great tricks to make SERIOUSLY the BEST roasted potatoes you'll ever have, and an amazingly simple lava cake. He also...
