    Erik - Season 4


    Erik

    AGE: 38

    HOMETOWN: Chappaqua, NY - currently resides in San Francisco, CA

    PROFESSION: Executive Chef at Circa Restaurant

    CULINARY EDUCATION: Self-Taught

    FAVORITE SIMPLE SPRING RECIPE: Spring lamb with fresh spring garlic

    BIO: A third generation chef, Erik gets his love of cooking from his grandfather and mother, who are both chefs. He worked his way through the ranks of several New York City restaurants before becoming sous chef at Eros and then Tapas Lounge. He eventually tired of the cold and decided to move to California, where he now works as executive chef at Circa Restaurant in San Francisco. He says his favorite thing to cook is Circa's popular pan-seared Chilean Sea Bass with wild chanterelle, truffles and caramelized leek ragout.

    I'm not sure what to say about this guy. He's a little scary.

    I am assuming the thing he is holding is something culinary, but I certainly don't have one in my kitchen! Can someone please tell me what the heck it is!?

    I'm not sure what that thing is. It is an enormous whisk? He could flip it over and be a drum major, but he'd have to be able to march backwards to do that. He's wearing a lot of jewelry for a chef, as it would be a pain to take all those rings and bracelets off to keep them out of the food.

    His Sea Bass with chanterelle and truffles sounds delicious.

    I think he's going to bomb out fast. He is scary looking-the only thing missing are prison tats

    oh I like him. I think he's got a tough look, but I certainly wouldn't think he's been in prison given his work background. My husband has a good friend who looks a lot like him (only with visible tatoos, rides a Harley, but doesn't wear jewelry like Erik). Hubby's friend has the same shaved head, beard, and he can look quite intimidating, but is a very nice guy. We'll see.
