Review

A highly interesting read for Foodies December 22, 2013 by  Ole Christiansen
Amazon.com,

This is the intimate story of Eric, who as a young boy, already knew that he was destined to be a gourmand.

It's very enjoyable reading, because you can feel his angst and his glee, as he faces his challenges and overcomes them.

I would highly recommend this heart-warming book for anyone wanting to be inspired, to know that dreams can come true; and it will interest Foodies, who can live vicariously through Eric's stories.

I really look forward to his next book of adventures.

A Delicious Book! Dec 18, 2013 by Tina Metzer
I enjoyed this book about Chef Eric and his childhood in France. His detail in the descriptions of characters, places and all the food was outstanding - you feel like you are there. Includes recipes in the back of book that were featured (helped win him over to love of food).

Great advice all throughout about his philosophy and the philosophy of his Grandmother "Mamie." First of a Series - I will be buying the remaining books when they are published.

The Makings of a Chef, Jan. 27 2014 By Edwards

The first volume of Chef Eric's memoir is charming, sweet and funny and of course it is all about food. Young Eric absorbs the magic of his beloved grandmother Mamie's kitchen and with her, the wonder of the traditional French food market. From a very early age he has made up his mind to be a chef. His exuberance about food and the anticipation he feels for a special meal is palpable. This is a lovely book and one that I will refer to often for the recipes (except possibly for the Conger Eel Provencal.)


A very good storyteller  March 07, 2014 By Christine Nich.

"Through iconic memories of his youth, Eric builds the story of his childhood years, all focusing on why and how he found very early on he wanted to be a Chef.

The tone starts with the bewildered views of a kid and turns to a better understanding of his family challenges, all with tenderness as well as a lot of humour.

As every good storyteller will do, the book ends at a defining moment in the young man's life and the reader is left eagerly waiting for what's going to come next"

Young Eric absorbs the magic of his beloved grandmother Mamie's kitchen and with her, the wonder of the traditional French food market. His exuberance about food and the anticipation he feels for a special meal is palpable. The chapters about Eric's struggles at school and his different way of learning are startlingly honest and inspirational. This is a lovely book and one that I will refer to often for the recipes.
