Eric is currently a class assistant at The Chopping Block, and he has a passion for cooking and baking.

When it comes to food and life, he believes trying new things and keeping an open mind is a key to enjoyment and happiness, because like he says, “You never know what you are going to like unless you give it a chance.”
