In 2003, Chef Eric opened his Los Angeles Cooking School as a place where aspiring cooks, chefs, bakers, and pastry chefs of all skill levels could find challenging and rewarding classes to suit their needs and elevate their love of cooking and baking. Chef Eric’s Culinary Classroom offers a wide range of recreational and professional classes, with a calendar that is constantly updated to reflect current gastronomic trends and the needs of its customers.
With an emphasis on hands-on learning in an intimate environment, Chef Eric takes great pride in patiently focusing on each of his students to motivate them to reach their goals and develop superb culinary skills. His humble attitude and ability to intently listen and provide encouraging feedback promotes a cohesive and productive learning environment. Chef Eric’s students include successful restaurant owners, professional chefs, caterers, personal chefs, home chefs, beginning cooks and children. Come to his West Los Angeles kitchen to enjoy his knowledgeable and welcoming style of teaching.
“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.
CHEF ERIC‘s instruction and encouragement helped me embark on a new career path. I began training at the Culinary Institute of America and am thrilled with my decision.

Having spent years enjoying recreational cooking I was quite excited to attend your classes recently. The food was exceptional. You made great tasting food preparation and cooking fun and accessible to everyone there and more importantly, confident enough to know that they could do this again at home.

I’d like to thank you for such a wonderful class. Both, Paul and I, not only learned so much, but had a great time. I felt so inspired to really try cooking again, for just the love of it. I even made a delicious potato leek soup today- using your very clever way of cutting onions. It was perfect! Back to the class- your recipes were great, your crew is great, and you are wonderful. We look forward to the next class with you.

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.

Thanks again for a great class last month. The techniques I learned in your Knife Skills class have really bumped my cooking up a few notches. I’m amazed at the difference it’s made. Prepping is easier & everything looks so much better too. I had to do a fine dice of carrots, onions, bell peppers & scallions that I would have dragged my food processor down for but not this time. I did it all by hand & the result was so much better (& gratifying). Thought you’d want to know-

My wife volunteered my services as Chef for a New Years Eve party for 3-4 couples. Your class has given me the confidence to create a masterful meal that will be served on time, look fantastic and taste even better.

Thank you Chef. Once again you truly amazed and dazzled us. Marilyn and I learned so much on Friday night. Not just new recipes, but new techniques and skills. It truly is the details that count. Thank you so much for the education and a wonderful evening.

I love the hands-on instruction and how much we are able to accomplish in a few hours….. I have become much more adventurous in my baking…
