“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...
“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.
“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 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...
“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...
“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...
“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.
“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...
“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 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!
