Cooking School in the Sky with Rouxbe & JetBlue Airways

by

JetBlue partners with Rouxbe as part of their Fly-Fi Hub launch. Cooking enthusiasts can now learn to become better cooks whenever they travel with JetBlue.

 

NEW YORK (November 24, 2014) – JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), New York’s Hometown AirlineTM, is partnering with content providers Coursera, FOX, HarperCollins Publishers, National Geographic, Rouxbe and Time Inc. to offer customers more free content than any other U.S carrier in the sky. The Fly-Fi Hub is the new gateway to JetBlue’s Fly-Fi offering, the fastest Wi-Fi in the sky, and went live this morning.

Available to JetBlue customers via their own personal device, it will offer a wide range of entertainment options such as some of the most popular TV shows from FOX and National Geographic, ebook samples from HarperCollins, e-learning videos from Coursera and educational cooking videos from the Rouxbe Cooking School, which includes a subsidized membership exclusively for JetBlue travellers that would like to continue their learning on the ground.

“Our Fly-Fi Hub will set a new standard of onboard content in the airline industry. Not only are we the only U.S. airline to offer free Wi-Fi to customers, with our new portal, we are now taking it to the next level and provide endless hours of entertainment whether you want to read, learn or just relax watching a TV show. To make this a reality, we have partnered with some of the most respected content providers, with plenty more to come in 2015,” said Jamie Perry, director of product development, JetBlue.

JetBlue launched Fly-Fi, the fastest Wi-Fi among all U.S. airlines, last year, which is currently available on 88 aircraft, with the number of Fly-Fi enabled aircraft increasing each week. JetBlue is now the only airline in the world to offer free live television at every seat, free high-speed Wi-Fi and leading instructional content.

“What better way to spend your time in the air. Now you can take off with JetBlue and land a better cook then you were before you left the ground. We are a pleased to partner with an airline that cares about the food experiences travellers have both on the ground and at over 30,000 feet,” said Joe Girard, CEO of Rouxbe.

Happy cooking with JetBlue and Rouxbe!

Learn to Grow Your Own Food w/ Rouxbe Cooking School

by

Learn to Grow Your Own Food

Given that our roots are in teaching people how to cook better, we thought it made sense to start the process of teaching people how to grow their own food.

Learn how to grow your own food with us as our team takes on this new and exciting challenge of transforming a yard or garden space, into a full production urban farm, from scratch.

This inaugural class is a bit different that all of Rouxbe’s other courses. This one comes complete with the unique opportunity for students to weigh-in as part of a collaborative learning community, while we actually build the future course. That’s right—it’s a work in process and you get to be a part of it. As a participant, you will be able to ask questions and follow alongside Rouxbe staff as they explore the tricks of the trade from some of the world’s leading gardeners, most of it delivered directly from the garden of Rouxbe’s founders. Participants can follow along in real-time in their own gardens, share their experiences with our global learner community, and even attend live video sessions with Rouxbe staff and experts.

This is a course for anyone who wants to learn more about growing food. Join us at Rouxbe as we plant deeper roots along a path to better cooking.

Rouxbe Cooks Up Partnership with the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM)

by

Rouxbe Partners with National College of Natural Medicine to Broaden Wellness Reach & Services

We are cooking up a partnership with the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) and we wanted to share a web-based educational experience with you that you may find useful as you learn to cook. NCNM, the oldest and largest Naturopathic College in the US, is hosting a Food as Medicine Symposium webinar event that is focused on the connections between cooking, eating and wellness.

Since we now have many health professionals among our ranks, many have asked about other opportunities that can support their culinary instruction at Rouxbe. NCNM is offering a unique opportunity via a two-day webinar that reinforces the importance of cooking with real, whole foods. But, it’s not just for professionals – anyone can attend this unique event.

This event is open to the general public, as well as to health professionals, for continuing education. It is part of a larger initiative that NCNM is spearheading, and we think it pairs nicely with work we are doing around wellness at Rouxbe and our commitment to getting people back in the kitchen.

Rouxbe Launches Game-Changing Professional Cook Certification Course

by

5-years in the making and it’s finally here!

Enrollment is now open for Rouxbe’s inaugural Professional Cook Certification Course. This follows on the heals of Rouxbe’s Plant-Based Certification Course which is in full swing with 2 offerings (the first sold out in under 3 weeks).

The first offering of the Professional Cook Certification Course will launch on May 1, 2014 and is limited to 250 seats (100 already snapped up at the time of this writing).

The launch of Rouxbe’s online Professional Cook Certification Course charts a new path for cooks that want to learn to develop their craft. Equally suited for culinary students wanting to enter the industry, working cooks looking for professional development, or even serious home cooks that want to develop their culinary skills, this course introduces and reinforces fundamental techniques and knowledge needed in today’s kitchens.

This 6-month, 200-hour program introduces an alternative educational path for cooks; for those who either can’t afford the expensive tuition of conventional culinary schools, or for those who simply prefer to develop their skills and culinary knowledge while working paid-positions in a professional kitchen. Click here to view the full syllabus.

“It’s now possible to graduate with certification from a professional culinary school without any student loan debt. And for cooks in the industry, you’ll be gaining valuable practical experience, developing skill, AND best of all, earning a paycheck at the same time,” says Joe Girard, CEO & Co-Founder of Rouxbe.

Check it out. $200 off the regular price for the first offering only, regularly priced at $999.99 USD.
