Loved it! Instruction was great, I loved that we could keep the recipes, and Eric was funny. I’d recommend to anyone.
Chef eric is an excellent instructor. His dilligence and paitent demmenaor make learning super fun. I wasn’t afraid to ask questions or to even make a mistake. I knew Chef Eric would help steer me back on track.

We all thought the cooking class was great, and we learned a lot of things to do in the kitchen and can’t wait to try the new recipes. The entire experience was amazing and again, thank you for giving us a successful event!
Facing a layoff after a decade at Walt Disney Feature Animation, I realized it was now or never to pursue my passion for the culinary arts. I actually took my first class from Chef Eric through a different program before he launched his own business. So impressed with his skills and knowledge, the minute I learned he had opened up Chef Eric’s Culinary Classroom I signed on the dotted line and took his culinary certificate program! It has been 10 years, yet every day I use the tools and experi…
Awesome class. Can’t wait to take his full course next year, but still coming back for Beer/Food Pairing and Designer Appetizers class.
First I have to say how much fun Dina and I had at your Chicken Connoisseur class this past Friday. What a great class and the food was incredible.
We were celebrating our one-year anniversary and it was the perfect choice. Food was delicious – wish there was even MORE cooking because I genuinely wanted to learn to cook. Would do it again!
Happy birthday! I think fondly of my first ever cooking classes from you.
I had an amazing experience in Chef Eric’s class. Very professional and yet so personal. I loved it!
I had a great time in your class Eric. You’re a terrific teacher- patient, knowledgable and fun. I plan on taking another class soon.
