Evan Kleiman has been the host of Good Food on KCRW since 1998, a longtime restaurateur and the founder of Slow Food in Los Angeles.
Here is a radio interview with Joe Girard, CEO of Rouxbe and Evan Kleiman from November 1, 2008.
“I get lots of emails from people asking me if they should go to cooking school.”
“I have to admit that I think that the best way to learn how to be a chef is to get yourself into a kitchen, not necessarily to get yourself into an expensive school. But there’s a new way to get that kind of education that can save you a lot of dough, and you don’t have to quit your day job. It’s an online cooking school and it’s a good one…”
“…You need a recipe and you don’t want to take the time to go through your mountain of cookbooks. Or maybe you have a recipe and you don’t really feel comfortable with the written instructions. So you finally find yourself online looking for an instructional cooking video. There are a lot of them out there, but among the best, maybe THE very best are those at Rouxbe.com Cooking School” Evan Kleiman, Good Food, KCRW.
