“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.
It was my first cooking class so I was a little unsure as to what to expect, however I was pleasantly surprised. It was a great experience. Not only did I learn a lot in the 2 1/2 hours I also got to enjoy eating the fruits of our labor…delicious! I’m definitely considering taking your Master Chef program. Thank you.

I referred a friend of mine and her sister and niece to your school. They took your Chicken Connoisseur Class and loved it. I knew they would because your school is the best in Los Angeles.

They loved it so much that they are planning a trip to take us husbands next time f…

This is the most fun I have had in years. Chef Eric is a terrific instructor. I have taken several of his classes and courses and keep coming back for more.

CHEF ERIC was my first professional chef instructor in Culinary Chef I and I’ve been devoted ever since. Having recently finished Culinary Chef II and III, I am now doing radio spots and cooking demonstrations. My career goals are closer than ever and I couldn’t have done it without CHEF ERIC and his school.

I completed Chef Eric’s Master Baking Program after college. I wanted to challenge myself to produce more professional-looking results; the course helped me accomplish that and much more. I loved the supportive environment and felt that my newly-acquired skills truly helped me turn a corner in my baking.
