Chef Jeff Welcomes You To Rumah Saya

FOOD WITHOUT BORDERS

Rumah Saya means My House in Indonesian where we lived for 20 plus years, hence my love of food with big flavour. So Welcome home. Welcome to our home where we cook for you with passion and promise. Our unique concept brings people together in a family-style setting to share something we all have in common and that is our love of great food, good wine, and enjoyable company.

What does that mean FOOD WITHOUT BORDERS? Well, it means create without any restrictions. Who says I can’t take a very French foie gras and glaze it with a mild truffle soya sauce or take a gyoza (Japanese dumpling) and infuse it with a citrus hollandaise. If it works (and sometimes it does not) then do it. Herbs, spices, methods, procedures, rules, regulations, whatever way you state it.. use EVERYTHING at your disposal to make something not only unique but mind blowing…. That is where I am going with this, so follow me, enjoy the adventure.

What We Offer

Market-driven menus

We have fantastic farmers markets in Alberta with produce grown by some very proud individuals who ensure quality in everything they bring to market. This is where I get my inspiration to create delicious dinners.

Authentic Cuisine

If I am cooking French that night then trust me it will be French. If I am cooking Balinese, the same thing applies, it will be from the island of the God's... If I am creating a fusion dinner from the East and West, all I can say is strap your boots on, Get Ready.... this is going to be fun.

Creativity

While some dishes surely will be familiar to you, some will seem familiar until you take your first bite, then it is like, wow where is he taking us. Don't worry you will be safe!

Cocktails and wine

Every evening starts with an exotic cocktail or (mocktail if required). Dinners are paired with exceptional wines for the evening. 

Music and Entertainment

I have an amazing selection of jazz, blues, light rock (or heavy rock if you like) Our music sets the tone for a wonderful evening.

What People are Saying

“A Great Find”

“Who would have thought Jeff and Joan would open their home to strangers. But what a knockdown success and a surprisingly fantastic experience”

Jeff had his adorable 12 year old niece serve one of the courses before she had to go home to bed.It simply does not get any better. Bravo Chef.

“Another successful experience”

This was my second time experiencing a 12 course dinner (actually 15 were served) with Chef Jeff. The first time was perfectly prepared French cuisine and this time exotic Asian spices from the other side of the world that gave my taste buds a real work out. I will definitely be back.

“Speechless”

Jeff served us an Asian dumpling that was spicy and full of flavour with a citrus hollandaise, Then he serves a poached wonton with foie gras inside and a light soya glaze…
I never saw that coming, be it French or Asian Jeff delivers both with gusto!!!
