Chef Egg Live: College Cooking Tour
With late nights, little funds, time and energy, college students get a bad rap about how they eat. Chef Egg wants to change the way students think about the cooking process during the school year and give them the skills, outlook and motivation they need to succeed in the kitchen.
Chef Egg Teaches:
-Nutrition for the productive student on the go.
-Easy to prepare recipes and quick culinary techniques.
-Green lifestyle, sanitation and kitchen safety
-International cuisine and specialty diets.
-Increase healthy social interaction and learn about new cultures and flavors.
Presentations, lectures and hands-on pop up events are available. Chef Egg Live events are perfect for orientations and international fairs. And, his hands-on events include food, equipment, aprons and chef hats.
Chef Egg is a professionally trained chef, culinary instructor and host of “Chef Egg’s Cooking Eggsperience”. With a rare blend of formal culinary training, real-world experience, and a street-wise sense of attitude, entertainment value and humor, Egg has found a niche that allows him to stand out in a sea of cooking shows, viral videos, and amateur foodie blogs.
His mission is to free everyone from a boxed, frozen and fast food prison by teaching you how to really get cooking! Not just show you a recipe, but also give you the details you need to claim your culinary independence.
Chef Egg has worked to spearhead culinary community outreach at Whole Foods Market. He has also worked with Chef Emeril Lagasse on his program “Emeril Green”. Recently, Chef Egg has been working with the US military and the Wounded Warrior Project, teaching classes to wounded veterans and caregivers at Walter Reed Hospital, with military resilience programs and overseas with Armed Forces Entertainment.

“I thought the program was WONDERFUL! Being informative without sounding preachy is very difficult, and I thought Erik did a great job. I really like the tone that was used with the students, as I feel they could easily relate to Erik and his cooking. I thought the layout of the show was perfect and the technology was great (camera, video’s, etc.). My supervisor…had nothing but positive things to say about the show including, “That was Awesome!” and “We need to have him come back again!”
…This program was such a breath of fresh air to the students and to me as an event planner. This cooking event by Chef Erik was the last huge event of our Week of Wellness and I don’t think things could have went any better. I thank Chef Erik for being such a great person with such an incredible talent, I hope to have him visit our campus again very soon!
I’m going to start some conversations with our residence hall dining folks and see if we can incorporate another type of training with the staff next time we bring Chef Egg up for a show. I think both our professional staff and students can learn a lot more from Chef Egg, and I know the first meeting was a huge success.”
