What Our Clients Say

Really enjoyed the experience

Took the basic knife skills class and really enjoyed the experience. I cook a lot at home and love it but never learned any techniques so I’m pretty slow. The tips Chef Eric taught were very useful to me and will speed up my cooking. He also taught us how to care for and sharpen knives which is what I really needed since all mine are dull.

We then got hands on cooking experience cutting vegetables, deboning chicken and more. Everyone in class was very friendly including the staff and Chef Eric. I found it to be a warm, inviting environment full of people who love to cook.

The kitchen was very clean and the meal cooked for the end of class using our prep ingredients was absolutely delicious. I’ll be back to take more classes soon!

Basic Knife Skills

Talented chef and amazing teacher

Back in April of 2018 I took Chef Eric’s Culinary Classroom Basics class. It was 4 Monday nights of professional lessons and well crafted recipes. I was on the 3rd Monday that we made a fresh pasta and bolognese sauce that would turn out to be the catalyst for me to venture further into culinary programs.

I recently completed the 16 week Master Chef Program and I am currently taking the 10 week Master baking program. Chef Eric is a talented chef and amazing teacher. I appreciate his positive approach to things. I’d also like to thank Juana for her amazing attitude and for all the hard work she does to keep the dishes washed.

Absolutely loved it

My daughter attended Chef Eric’s cooking camp recently. She absolutely loved it. She would come home so enthusiastic about what they cooked that day. She gained confidence in her skills and said everyone was really nice. I found it easy to sign up and Jennie was professional and friendly. The only adjustment I can suggest would be to make the camp day a little longer. We will be returning to Chef Eric’s kitchen in the future.
