Hi Jennie, I received an email from Lucas’s mom and thought you might enjoy it. “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. I have not seen him smile like that in such a long time.” Thank you for providing our children with free cooking lessons. It makes a difference in their lives and their families as well.
First I have to say how much fun Dina and I had at your Chicken Connoisseur class this past Friday. What a great class and the food was incredible.
CHEF ERIC gave me the tools I needed to become a successful full-event caterer.
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.
I had purchased this class as an anniversary gift for my wife who was accompanied with a very good friend. I was very happy to hear that she loved it and that is was well worth the trip down south. She was glad that the class was not intimidating at all but very relaxed and comfortable. The plus for both of them was that the chef was very personable which helped the girls with their nerves during the class. They loved it so much that they are planning a trip to take us husbands next time f…
Chef Eric, I just wanted to say thank you for such a special Valentine’s Day cooking class. Chris and I had such a great time. Chris had never taken a cooking class before and he loved your class. It was such a nice break from the traditional dinner out. You were so much fun and really made the night special. Thanks again, we look forward to coming back soon.
Ron and I had a great time last Saturday. I plan to make the Portobello mushroom pizza for a dinner party next week….YUM! Looking forward to more classes in the future. Thanks!
I would recommend this course to anyone no matter your prior experience with cooking. Chef Eric is a very knowledgeable instructor. The small class sizes make learning easy and effective.
Extremely Satisfied -The best cooking class I ever attended. All the staff, and of course, Chef Eric, were the best. I am looking forward to taking the Master Baking and Master Chef Program soon!
My friend Brigit and I attended your sushi class last month. We were so inspired that we are now having a sushi/football next Saturday. Yay!
