“People can derive a great deal from the art of cooking. The ultimate reward for me is seeing the sense of confidence and pure joy that my students experience when they master the life skill of cooking through my instruction, and to help other chefs follow in my footsteps and create their own businesses and careers,” Chef Eric.
Chef Eric has more patience than anyone I’ve ever met. Great chef and instructor. Love this classroom.

Thank you for being a FANTASTIC teacher! I had a great time in your Monday night, 4 week cooking class and learned a lot.

I made the meatloaf dish last night and it turned out great! You have boosted my cooking confidence and encouraged me to cook more. I hope to take future classes at Chef Eric’s in the future.
