“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.

Before I began the Master Chef Program with Chef Eric I did not know anything about French Cuisine. I was really excited to work with him. I learned more than what I was hoping to accomplish in 18 weeks. Every week I was excited to learn something new. Chef Eric’s Culinary Classroom is a program that you must try. Working with Chef Eric was a blessing because of his patience and experience. He made sure every student understood everything every lesson. I really recommend Chef Eric’s Culinary Cla…
