“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.
Awesome class. Can’t wait to take his full course next year, but still coming back for Beer/Food Pairing and Designer Appetizers class.

I just want to thank you for the excellent YouTube videos you have online. They’re to the point, and the camera shots are close enough so the viewer can really see what you are talking about and how to do something correctly. And it really helps that you don’t rush through things. For example: after watching your video, “How to Debone a Chicken Breast” – anyone could do it.Thanks again for everything that you do. Your work really encourages those of us who are learning some of what it takes t…

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.
