Selland’s won’t dumb it down

By April 12, 2012

The best lunch in El Dorado Hills can be found at Sacramento Celebrity Chef Randall Selland’s upscale deli, Selland’s Market-Café, according to Village Life readers.

The Selland family owns and operates the flagship Market-Café in East Sacramento, the more formal Ella Dining Room, and the multi-hour food performance known as The Kitchen, which put Selland’s personality and his food on Sacramento’s culinary map.

The Dorado Hills café opened in January, so the recognition surprised and humbled the effervescent chef, who immediately turned the accolade around, flattering El Dorado Hills’ diners for recognizing his family’s commitment to fresh ingredients, careful preparations and good service.

“We don’t dumb anything down,” he said. “I think people in El Dorado Hills appreciate things like humanely treated, preservative-free meats.”

His success in El Dorado Hills is a continuation of the simple philosophy that he and his wife, co-chef Nancy Zimmer started at The Kitchen 21 yrs ago, “We cook food that we would prepare for ourselves and our friends.”

Sellands Market Café is located on the first floor of el Dorado Hills Town Center’s New Orleans Building, and is open Monday through Wednesday, 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
