Eric Patterson is the co-chef and co-owner of The Cooks’ House, Local sustainable cuisine skillfully prepared and served in Traverse City. He spent close to fifteen years at Andre’s, Las Vegas’ 5 star French restaurant, including a three-year apprenticeship under Andre. At the end of his Vegas tenure, Patterson was Andre’s head chef. He has also co-authored one cookbook about “The Art & Soul of Local Sustainable Cuisine.”
“Cooking could be the most important impetus that gave our earliest ancestors the ability to evolve into humankind, and while that was and continues to be an important factor in becoming human, I also believe that cooking today allows us to transcend our own humanity and rebel against the absurdity of our lives.”
