“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 just wanted thank you and Chef Eric for a very enjoyable and memorable experience. Everybody had a great time. Steve was thrilled! Don’t be surprised if you see him at future classes. You were so helpful and very responsive to all my requests. Thanks again.

Tony and I were in your class last Saturday night. Learned a lot and enjoyed the entire experience. Wanted to tell you that this week I used the lamb recipe on pork chops and it was excellent. Thanks for a great night.

Lucas had so much fun. The first day I picked him up from cooking he had a huge smile on his face. He said mom, I love the class!
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.
