I came into this experience nervous and uneasy in the kitchen. I’m happy to say that I’ve emerged bold and confident! Thanks to Chef Eric and his crew, I’m looking forward to a lifelong love of cooking and entertaining. On a side note, this class is also great to take with a significant other. It’s a fun and creative way to spice up a relationship!
Chef Eric was great! He had a well-organized and nicely-paced evening planned. We were never bored, and we had a great meal to boot!
The classes (both courses) were great, so informative and so much fun. Chef Eric has such a wealth of knowledge and such a great, encouraging way of teaching and supporting creativity …….
Dear Chef Eric and your wonderful staff, Thank you for making BSF Santa Monica Office’s first holiday party such a success! Everyone had a fantastic time and we all went away learning something new. Thank you again and happy new year! Sincerely, Vanessa Le
I enjoyed my experience at cooking school very much and I enjoyed making dishes that I had never heard of before. I also enjoyed learning different tricks to help with cooking a specific dish.
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.
The Master Chef program was incredible! I cooked with food I had never experienced before. Ate food I had never experienced. My confidence level grew each week. Chef Eric is a great instructor. His passion for food and teaching speaks for itself. No matter how much experience you have, or dont have yet, once you complete this course, you will be amazed with the level of skills you acquire.
Awesome class. Can’t wait to take his full course next year, but still coming back for Beer/Food Pairing and Designer Appetizers class.
