Beverly Press/Park Labrea News February 12, 2004 Chef Eric Crowley studied at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, trained under European Master Chefs in Barcelona and Munich, and has taught culinary arts in Los Angeles since 1996. That impressive background is enough to intimidate any student who walks into his recently opened Culinary Classroom, but unlike the stereotypical image of the ranting mad chef demanding adulation for his creations, Crowley…

My students will start by preparing their Mirepoix-learning what it is and even discovering that almost every cuisine has a variation of it. Cooking the stock properly is vital.

We were celebrating our one-year anniversary and it was the perfect choice. Food was delicious. Would do it again!
For the aspiring Chef or the Home Cook, Culinary Chef I is a class that everyone should take. Chef Eric and his staff are more than hospitable. The knowledge you gain and the people you meet make you want to come back for more every week.
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.
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.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 love the hands-on instruction and how much we are able to accomplish in a few hours….. I have become much more adventurous in my baking…
Hi Chef! My daughter, Makenna, and I were in your cupcake class on Saturday and we had so much fun and just finished our last cupcake today. I am ready to bake tomorrow and impress my friends with your delicious recipes! Thanks!
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.
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!
It has been a pleasure attending the Master Chef Program with Chef Eric…the class has given me the confidence to keep pushing forward in the world of culinary. Chef Eric has been a wonderful teacher and chef.
