Testimonials

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 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!...

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...

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....

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.

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 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...

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.

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...
