On Thursday, December 12, 2013, I was lucky enough to be a part of the Kcal 9 News at noon. While I was there, I prepared and got to share one of my tasty desserts: banana-rum crepes with chocolate drizzle. Sandra Mitchell the anchor for the news at noon was gracious enough to assist me in making the crepes. For all the ladies out there, I was able to extinguish the…
Since making Stocks in my last post, my Thursday night students have moved on to make Omelets, Souffles, Vegetables and Potatoes. Now is the time when they are going to start to show me what they have learned. My lecture will consist of a demonstration on how to de-bone a chicken breast and how to fillet a fish. Then the students will be assigned their own fish or chicken to…
During the second week of the Master Chef Program, I explain why Stocks are so important in any kitchen, Professionally or at home.

The program exceeded all expectations that I had when I signed up. Chef Eric is amazing, patient, and very knowledgeable…. Best 10 Weeks ever!
I wanted to thank you and your staff for great hospitality and the wonderful day you provided for our group. We all had a great time and enjoyed the dishes we prepared. I will definitely recommend your place to my friends and clients for their events.
An enjoyable afternoon. Clear instructions and guidance generously and humorously given. Will be back.
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.
Having the most fun and excellent learning experience attending your class. I am really enjoying it. Every time I get a chance to apply what I learned from school, I have my husband and friends as my fans. And you know what they said, [my cooking] tastes really like the food prepared by a professional chef!
With the skills Chef Eric taught me, I have ventured into the world of private chef-ing. I have been working with the same client. I travel with him and it is absolutely a fantastic career. Thank you!
I’d like to thank you for such a wonderful class. Both, Paul and I, not only learned so much, but had a great time. I felt so inspired to really try cooking again, for just the love of it. I even made a delicious potato leek soup today- using your very clever way of cutting onions. It was perfect! Back to the class- your recipes were great, your crew is great, and you are wonderful. We look forward to the next class with you.
I simply loved my time in the Master Baking Program. I learned so much and had fun in every class. Chef Eric is a fantastic instructor. He’s very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and happily welcomes questions- no matter what they may be. I highly recommend The Culinary Classroom.
My wife volunteered my services as Chef for a New Years Eve party for 3-4 couples. Your class has given me the confidence to create a masterful meal that will be served on time, look fantastic and taste even better.
I want to thank you for a wonderful experience you gave my daughter, Sophia. She really was inspired. She will be cooking for a group of adults and is not at all worried! Thank you for your hard work and graciousness!
