The Rouxbe Online Cooking School Team
Vancouver, British Columbia, February 21, 2013 – Rouxbe (pronounced “ROO-bee”), the leading online instructional cooking school, has released the first two of its many contextualized certification cooking courses: The Cook’s Roadmap (Level 1) and Plant-Based Cooking (Level 1). These two courses will be followed by a series of additional recreational and professional course launches.
The educational material in each course is equivalent to a multi-day recreational or professional cooking course, yet students can start these on-demand courses at any time and at their own pace. At the end of a course, graduating students will earn a Rouxbe certificate. Courses starting at $49.95 USD are available for every skill level and cater to a wide variety of diets.
“After ten years of teaching in and directing professional culinary programs, I see Rouxbe as the future of culinary education. Rouxbe offers an unprecedented front seat to learn the techniques behind and the foundation of good cooking,” said Ken Rubin, Rouxbe’s VP of Culinary Training and chair of The Culinary Trust.
Rouxbe’s courses are based on a simple theory: Learn the right techniques, take the time to practice and you can master thousands of recipes in a fraction of the time it takes to learn them individually.
People wanting to learn to cook are often caught in a cycle of inefficient learning, bombarded by free online and offline content (for example, recipes, celebrity chefs and out-of-context videos). Even if they find the best recipe in the world from a great chef, tested by a team of experts, it won’t work if they don’t understand how to execute and adapt the underlying techniques.
Unlike recipe-centric approaches, Rouxbe’s instructor-guided certification courses focus on the techniques, methods and nutrition necessary to master one’s own kitchen. Inspired by and designed for recreational and professional culinary students around the globe, Rouxbe has spent seven years developing this innovative course delivery platform and meticulously produced technique-driven content to help any student get on the path to better cooking.
Each course is structured within a modern learning framework modeled after the thinking process of professional chefs: the Map of Cooking. This top-down architecture enables students to dive deep into fun activities—including flavor tactics, memory games, timed visual learning, playing “recipe doctor” and negotiating with the “Rouxbe Supreme Court”—all while keeping a sense of the bigger picture.
Rouxbe’s courses are a catalyst for transforming the way you cook, eat and live.
Rouxbe courses fit into students’ lives in a simple, authentic and time-efficient way. Students dictate their own class time and length, leverage real-life instructor support and track their progress through a variety of assessment activities to pinpoint areas for improvement.
You have the power to change your life through food. Let Rouxbe give you the right tools.
