Our Mission

To transform the way the world cooks, eats and lives.

Why was Rouxbe Created?

To wake up your cooking brain! We believe that millions of motivated cooks have been misled to believe that recipes alone will make them better cooks. This is simply not true. Each year, hundreds of millions of cookbooks are sold—and quickly abandoned after being opened. Few seem to realize that learning the techniques behind recipes is the most effective way to learn to cook: the way the pros learn. We created Rouxbe to disrupt this thinking and take a stand to help the world eat better.*

What It Costs

Rouxbe is a member-only culinary community for motivated home and professional cooks. There is a one-time initiation fee of $299.95 USD that will provide students with full access to the entire site. In addition, students are charged a recurring $4.95 charge on a monthly basis for as long as they would like access to Rouxbe's content and service (some take longer to complete their studies than others). You can cancel at anytime.
