“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.
I want to thank you for what has been a wonderful experience and totally reignited my enthusiasm for cooking. My most sincere thank you to you and all your wonderful staff.

I took the Cupcake class and my cupcakes from here on out will never be the same!! Chef Eric is an outstanding instructor. There were young girls in the class with their parent and he was so patient with them which speaks volumes for Chef Eric and his personality. The tips alone that I picked up in this class added even more value to the class. Who knew I was measuring flour incorrectly all these years! I will be signing up for both his Master Baking/Pastry Class and his Master Chef Class.
