Episode VI: Return of the VooDoo Chef

VooDoo EpicureanDid he cast some kind of VooDoo spell on us? Nope. He’s back, and by popular demand!

Erik Young, the famous VooDoo Chef returns to the Epicurean Theatre in an attempt to rescue guests from the normal cooking classes by entertaining and, of course, cooking his VooDoo way. This Friday, October 14, from 7 to 9 p.m., join us in the Epicurean Theatre for a multi-course meal of eclectic cocktails and downright delicious food.

Erik Young VooDooWith 30 years of experience in the food-service industry, Erik has been a Culinary Educator for the past 19 years. His local tie to Tampa is that he’s the driving force behind the award-winning Culinary Operations Academy at Chamberlin High School. He continues to get recognized at various levels for so many of his gracious contributions to culinary education.  He is also the owner of Let’s Do Gourmet, a gourmet seasoning company — where each seasoning are is tested in the heat of the kitchens inside restaurants and are available wholesale, retail, and as a fundraising opportunity. A portion of his sales are donated to the State Restaurant Association in support of culinary education through student scholarships.
