Introduction: Over 20 years of experience cooking in all different types of kitchens. From banquets and catering to Michelin starred restaurants in San Francisco and Washington DC. I will strive hard to create a unique experience that is perfect. Most recently held Executive Chef position for Marriott international. Some of the Chefs I have worked for in San Francisco and Washington DC: Jean-Georges, Wolfgang Puck, Michael Mina, Hiro Sone, Charlie Trotter. My background and passion for cooking started at 16 years old in my fathers kitchen who owned and operated 10 restaurants in Austin, Texas and who had the honor to cook for President Regan and Queen Elizabeth. I’ve acquired a lot of my skills and work ethics from my father in addition to my experience throughout the years. Today, I continue to bring to your home only the best quality in the dishes I prepare. Also please only reach out if you serious thumbtack charges me at least 25 dollars per lead. Thanks !!

Chef Eric was great to work with. I hired him to create a 5 course meal for a group of 6 women in town for a girls weekend. I entertain a lot in Houston and was Leary to hire someone out of state. I could not have been happier with the food's taste and presentation. His personality was great too! Highly recommended!

Eric was absolutely excellent! We got married during quarantine and wanted a private chef to prepare dinner at our wedding. Eric exceeded all of our expectations and was an absolute pleasure to work with. We reached to more than a dozen private chefs to discuss catering. Our experience with Eric was hands down the best of all of them. He actually listened to what we wanted instead of telling us what he could do. He heard what we wanted and crafted a menu that fit it exactly. Between when we hired him and the wedding, our plans changed three or four times. Quarantine eased up and most people were partially vaccinated so we invited more guests, decided to have an appetizer table, went with plated dinner service rather than a buffet, and decided to hire a bartender. Eric rolled with the punches no problem. He found us a bartender and brought in another chef to help him with the added prep. It was a huge comfort that every time our plans changed Eric was able to handle it immediately and we didn't have to worry about it. On the day of the wedding, Eric was fantastic. He needed about 10 minutes of our time for us to show him around and then he was completely self-sufficient. He also helped us with some last minutes issues we hadn't even thought about like plating desserts, order of the dinner service, and even cleaned the plates and utensils from dinner. The food was fantastic (pictures of the main dishes below) and all our guests were very impressed by how good it was and how efficiently everything came out of the kitchen. We're not planning on getting married again anytime soon but we will happily hire Eric for any function that needs a private chef!
