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.
I’m really enjoying the class. I look forward to going every time. Since I’ve signed up for the class and met with you the first time, my life has changed to a direction I never thought it could. I feel like I’m living in my dream for the first time in my life. I feel confident, excited and in love with all the baking that I do. It’s a joy to see all those smiles from my family and friends when I give them all the sweets that I make. I’ve been hearing, “thank you, Grace that was really delicious…

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.

Chef Eric runs a great “Culinary Basics” class series. He makes the experience of learning to cook fun and interesting. Anyone interested in learning to cook will come out of this series much more confident about his or her cooking skills. I am looking forward to the next series!

If you want to experience a hands-on, very personalized culinary cooking series, you must sign up for Chef Eric’s Culinary Classroom! Chef Eric cares about his students, is an excellent instructor, and makes sure every person is getting the most out of his classes.

Loved it! Instruction was great, I loved that we could keep the recipes, and Eric was funny. I’d recommend to anyone.
Dan Jacobs, Spanish Cuisine Cooking Class
I have really enjoyed the Basic Skills Class. It was very instructive, fun and a great way to ‘cook with new friends.’ I have learned how to properly chop, use knives and many other skills we take for granted. I can’t wait for my next class.
Sharyn Powell, Culinary Basics Series Graduate
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.

You run a great cooking program. Jonah and I enjoyed it tremendously and we learned a lot. He will be back… and maybe me too! Thanks you!

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!
