I referred a friend of mine and her sister and niece to your school. They took your Chicken Connoisseur Class and loved it. I knew they would because your school is the best in Los Angeles.
Chef Eric and Staff~ Thank you so much for the class Larry and I took. We talked about it the whole weekend. You and your staff are so very special and I cannot wait to take another class from you. I just wanted to say thank you from the two of us.
To one of the most awesome chefs and instructors out there!!!
It was my first cooking class so I was a little unsure as to what to expect, however I was pleasantly surprised. It was a great experience. Not only did I learn a lot in the 2 1/2 hours I also got to enjoy eating the fruits of our labor…delicious! I’m definitely considering taking your Master Chef program. Thank you.
I just want to say how much I have enjoyed this program, how much I have learned! My confidence in the kitchen has grown and the entire experience has deepened my love for cooking. Who says you can’t teach old dogs new tricks! Thanks to you both.
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!
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 …….
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.
Thanks to CHEF ERIC’s CULINARY CLASSROOM and his Culinary Chef series, I was able to gain the confidence to pursue a new career. If you’re thinking about taking a class (professionally or recreationally), don’t wait!
Sheldon and I want to thank you for a wonderful evening. Your enthusiasm and supportive nature made the class really fun. We look forward to taking more classes.
