CHEF ERIC gave me the tools I needed to become a successful full-event caterer.
Chef Eric is a phenomenal chef and instructor. The Master Chef class has been informative, inspiring, and above all, fun! The confidence I have in myself as a chef has improved alongside my skills, and for that I have Chef Eric to thank. I am so glad I took this course and look forward to learning more skills through Chef Eric’s other courses.
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-
SaMiah had such a wonderful experience at Chef Eric’s Culinary Academy, she didn’t want it to end. I was amazed at all of the dishes they made each day in the amount of time given! Everything tastes great. We are so thankful to you for allowing her that experience. SaMiah is greatly considering the culinary arts as her future career. She does lots of cooking and helping in the kitchen at home as well. Thank You!

Chef Eric is an excellent instructor. His diligence and patient demeanor make learning super fun. I wasn’t afraid to ask questions or to even make a mistake. I knew Chef Eric would help steer me back on track.
I’d developed a flair for Baking, and used to do tons of it at home. I was looking at doing some professional Baking courses when I came across Chef Eric’s Culinary Classroom Master Baking Program. I’m glad I chose this program as the course was really detailed and focused on the right techniques and helped me fine tune my Baking. Since then I’ve moved to Bangalore, India, however I’ve kept in contact with Chef Eric and he still helps me answer my Baking queries.The biggest change for me is having more confidence in the kitchen – which leads to trying things (with a higher success rate!) and having the courage to “whip something up” on short notice.Giovanna Imbesi, Culinary Chef I Graduate, Home Chef
Thanks for a great 4 week course! I’m really jazzed up about cooking now – can’t wait to get out there and buy a pasta making machine to crank out the linguini!
Dear Chef Eric and Jennie: Thank you for a wonderful class to celebrate my birthday! Ever since my first cooking class there, I’ve wanted to have a private party. It was worth the wait! Everyone had a tremendous time! I look forward to future classes. Sincerely, JoeBob
