“Chef Russ and The Hidden Table Gourmet company that he operates is fantastic. I have experienced his services as both a personal chef, and as a caterer for large events. In each category, he has received excellent reviews. His desire to please his clients is second to none. I truly believe that he will continue to polish his operation and organization as the opportunity to cater large events arises, while maintaining his "personal" touches and attention to his...
“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...
“You should absolutely choose Chef Russ. He is friendly, knowledgeable & an incredible chef. We've had him to our home multiple times and the food is amazing. He also goes above and beyond offering to answer any questions that ever come up while cooking. I really like how he cleans everything up at the end of the night. Highly recommend.
“Chef Russ is AWESOME! Our company had a mini retreat in Tahoe not too long ago and wanted a fun in home meal prepared for our group It was our way to team build and be pampered a bit while on a weekend away. It was a last minute kind of an idea that we didn't think about until we were already at the cabin, but we thought we would see what was possible... I believe I called Chef Russ at 8pm on a Saturday night and at the end of our call, I had menu selections emailed to...
“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.
“I did some graphic design work for Chef Russ years ago and still had his number on my phone. I had a birthday coming up and thought it'd be a great idea to have him come and cook for a dinner party. I am so glad he still had the same number!! He came in with an assistant and took care of EVERYTHING! It was delicious and beautifully presented! I'm a pescatarian, but the others were not so we had a choice of main dish & he accommodated our special needs well. I had the miso coated Sea Bass and...
“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...
“Russ is great! He has cooked for our family numerous times and it is always amazing. Try his beef wellington....it's rediculous!! But event the simple stuff like Chili is the best I've ever had. Hurry up and book Chef Russ for whatever you can. Amazing....glad we found him!
“Chef Russ is amazing! His food and service is incredible. I have also worked with him during much of his charitable works, when he donates his time to prepare food for large events for local nonprofits. I am so excited for all of his success and would recommend him for any event or occassion!
“We've been utilizing Chef's services for about 18 weeks now and we absolutely love it. So convenient and delicious we aren't sure how we ever got along without him!
