About Eric Bleimeister

Eric has been an enthusiastic cook since he moved out of his parents’ home. His solid memories of family life around the dinner table stick with him today especially the rich traditional and cultural heritage shared over food. Family health issues propelled him to explore better nutritional food sources and cooking processes and Eric now has over 20 years experience with fitness, nutrition and writing. He has always been called upon to whip up main courses for every social occasion and continually comes to the rescue of overworked friends. Whether it’s on the grill, the stove top or in the oven, Eric has an inherent savvy of how to mix ingredients together and make a delicious meal.

He is the parent of a finicky eater and this challenge — to get his kid to eat well in a world of pre-packaged and sugary foods — acts as constant inspiration (and perspiration) for him to write about food and develop healthy meals. As a food writer “Kids and a Cook” has been a great opportunity.

Eric Bleimeister is available for lectures and cooking demonstrations. Please contact us through this website.
