The Waldorf Astoria NYC
Ken Rubin, Vice President Culinary Training at Rouxbe
The Waldorf Astoria Program requires that cooks complete a number of different types of assessments that measure and track a range of competencies as well as more general culinary knowledge. The live practical assessment feature uses a convenient smartphone or tablet interface to evaluate employees while on the job – these assessments take just a few moments and focus on specific culinary competencies and performance measures.
Director of Culinary at the Waldorf Astoria NYC, Chef David Garcelon, is enthusiastic about Rouxbe.
I am convinced that the Rouxbe Online Cooking School is the future of culinary education and training,” he says, “Rouxbe teaches, reinforces and verifies culinary skills.”
Our content and learning platform gives us the unique ability to bridge the gap between online instruction and real life cooking experience – whether through interactive and live grading features or connecting the dots on a process or technique.” says Ken Rubin, Vice President of Culinary Training at Rouxbe.
Rouxbe has pioneered this powerful way to learn online. It is being played out in the kitchens of restaurants, hotels, schools and resorts around the world. “It’s not science fiction,” says Rubin, “Get in the game – this is real and people are learning in unprecedented ways.”
