As a youngster growing up in Brooklyn, Eric started testing recipes on friends and family at 10-years old and by 20-years old, he was already working with the world's most famous chefs. Chef Eric studied at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York and soon after graduation, worked under celebrity chef David Burke at the River Cafe.
From there, he went on to build a world-wide repertoire. It's Chef Eric's belief that to become a truly accomplished chef, one must be aware of every culinary style. Working with Chef Jean-Louis Le Massion from Le Petite Cafe in France, he learned how to finesse the romance of a dish. From his tenure with Chef Giovanni Brunell at Il Tratattoire da Familia in Italy, he learned how to infuse passion and robust flavor into his cooking. From there, he studied with Master Chef Lee Ho of Otani from Japan where he learned how to meld old-world practices with modern cuisine.
Chef Eric commented, "I'm so excited to share my passion for cooking with the Pazoo community. I love to take old recipes and make them new, with healthier but still very flavorful ingredients. Sharing a meal with your family & friends nurtures your relationships and celebrates life. Fire it up!"
