“What a find! Thanks fellow Yelp reviewers. The wonderful (and now verified accurate) Yelp reviews for Chef Russ was the reason I "cold called" him for my son's graduation party (80 family and friends). He had such a positive vibe when we spoke on the phone while planning our event. Chef Russ was so amenable to working with me on both menu and pricing. As I told my family ... if his food is as wonderful as his demeanor and spirit, then our dinner would be successful....
“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...
“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...
“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!...
“Chef Russ and staff did an amazing job for our wedding! He made everything so personal and so delicious. He knows what tastes good together - food and drink. Our wedding was for about 80 people held at a private home. He came in took over the kitchen, cooked on the BBQ and it was all seamless and did i mention delicious! I would highly recommend Chef for your next small dinner party or larger gathering!
“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!
“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.
“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 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 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! :)
