I am loving this site
I have loved cooking for years. I have always wanted to go to culinary school, but haven't been able to make it a reality, this is wonderful!
Julienne, chiffonade, emince...? Fancy names. Simple concepts. Find clarity here.
I'm Barry from down south in Georgia, I can't believe the improvement I've made already with basic techniques done properly. I'm quickly becoming the family's pan sauce king. There is nothing like a premium cut of meat properly prepared, cooked to perfection and served with a great sauce.
Hello all, I am Di from Texas...my participation is
provided by my cooking club. I just finished my first video about stock. Great quality video and instructions.
I am totally looking forward to this experience. I am 59 years old and have been cooking since I was 13. I love to try new things and this is a great way to start the new year.
I am one of those who learned mostly from books. Then I began watching other people cook on TV. I'm pretty good but sometimes things just don't turn out right. From being a professional musician I know you can't perform if you don't know your basic techniques. I am looking forward to getting the real facts rather than all the trial and error (and error) that I have been experiencing already.
Once place I learned from my friends and neighbors was Louisiana. In that culture the most important question is: "Who's you mama, Are you Catholic, and can you make a roux?" Well I sure can make a roux and I find it hilarious that this school is called Rouxbe.
I live in north Georgia and when I learned to cook, I learned to fry everything. I am excited to see new techniques for cooking.
I love to watch cooking shows and have collected many, many cookbooks from different regions and have always enjoyed trying new recipes and ideas.
...for those of us who love to cook, but don't have the time or money to go to culinary school. I'm a fairly decent home cook, but can always improve. I love the "why" much more than the "how" of cooking...food science rocks! I can't wait to delve deeper into the lessons. Thanks for providing such a wonderful opportunity!
I'm Ramona Werst from Texas. I have been sent to the Rouxbe Cooking School from Cooking Club of America to review the School.
I create and write recipes for several of my own blogs ranging from Real Texas Cooking, Cooking with Fresh Basil, Heart Healthy Recipes and Cooking Vietnamese Food with an American Twist.
This opportunity is so exciting for me, I spent until 3am going through videos and recipes. I woke my husband up and asked if he'd go grocery shopping with me at 3am!
This is the perfect school and I'm excited to write up a Fantastic review!
I was given this free trial by the Cooking Club of America. I cook pretty well but I am looking forward to tring out new techniques. To have access to this site is a way to get a better idea of certain techniques that you may not get elsewhere. I am off to start....
I was sent this free trial also. I write a column on frugal living in our local paper and I look forward to learning new recipes and ways to stretch menus throughout the week in a delicious and fresh way.
Thank you for this chance to learn new techniques for great taste!! Oh, and I'm from Phoenixville, PA and have two daughters (12 & 13) and a husband who would be happy to have me learn to cook better! (So would our beagle too!)
I am excited about this trial that I received form Cooking Club of America. I am told that I'm an exceptional cook, however I'm always learning something new even after 40 some years of cooking. My four 30+ children are also excellent cooks and I will be happy to pass on any new ideas as cooking seems to be a bonding passion in our family.
Hi, I'm a mom of 4 kids. I was not taught how to cook as a child and do enough to bet by. I do struggle because I want to learn to cook better but alot of what I cook doesn't come out right or at least look appetizing. I am hoping this school will teach me how to cook better and learn the correct way so I can make the food look better and taste better.
Hi, I am 44, work fulltime, but happen to be on vacation when i rec'vd the invite from cooking club. I am from PA, and on vacation to prepare a few cakes for this weeks upcoming PA Farm Show, hopefully there might be a trick or two i can learn to use in my cooking and /or baking! nice to meet everyone! Cheers from PA! :) Heidizme
I am 73 and retired in South Carolina.I am taking this schooling thanks to The Cooking Club.I have been cooking since I was 8 or 9 and love it. I am interested in learning new methods and new foods. Nice to meet you. I am looking forward to this.
I am also retired as of last July and was invited by the Cooking Club to test out the cooking classes for two weeks. Loved the Risotto and stock classes. Also never really learned how to chop using the rolling method and the demonstration was great.
I also have been invited by the Cooking Club to try Rouxbe Cooking School. With my husband and I retiring to Florida from the cold north we find we have much more time for one of our favorite hobbies, cooking! Though I still play at working, I teach cake decorating part-time for fun, I am looking forward to learning new techniques.
I was also invited to this site by Cooking Club of America.
I live in a rural area of northeastern Arizona (where it snows and gets really cold!) and I work from home as an internet marketer and freelance writer. Because my husband and I live outside of town, we rarely go out to eat and I cook all our meals from scratch, even bread and hamburger buns.
I'm always looking for new recipes that my husband might enjoy since I get tired of always planning meals and cooking the same dishes. I'm definitely looking forward to learning new techniques, skills, and recipes here.
Hello to all,
I also was invited to this site by Cooking Club of America. I have come to learn since getting married that I really enjoy cooking. I like to see if I can add a little twist to common meals such as meatloaf. I found that my creative outlet is through cooking and not arts/crafts. One of the best feelings is when my husband says "that was delicious" and goes for seconds.
This site looks as if it will help me with some basic cooking skills that I don't since I have not gone to a cooking school.
Can't wait to get started.
Got free 14 day trial from cooking club.Can see what they are teaching these days and how they compare to my 48 years in the rest. Always learn as much as you can becaues there is always something newcomong alonge in this great field. Ken Huggins C.E.C.
I am also new to the site, and ivited by the cooking club! I am a life insurance agent working from my home office and my husband and I have a passion for cooking! We have a 12 year old son who we want to prepare healthy and delicious food for so I can't wait to check out the tips and lessons!- Once I am done meeting with my clients tonight, I will be home and ready to learn for tomorrow! From Sunny San Diego, CA - have a great day!
I have been invited to try the free trial of this school by the Cooking Club of America. I was a Home Economiocs major and taught Home Ec for 5 years in the early sixties.
I love to cook and I watch the Food Network shows and like to try the dishes I see prepared. There are so many new small techniques that I have learned from watching these shows. I know there are things I will learn from this one also. Happy cooking, everyone
I too have been invited for a free trial through Cooking Club. If my t.v. is on it's on either Food Network or the Cooking Channel. My husband and I love cooking together. I am already excited about making risotto tomorrow night (100% on my quiz ;-)and the Pork Medallions with Miso Sauce is next. I love the video recipes. Enjoy everyone !!
I also was offered the chance of a two-week trial by CCofA. I'm really excited. Even though I've been cooking for 40 years, I'm anxious to learn how to make things I've never tried before, like risotto and hand made pasta. This is an amazing opportunity to learn from professionals and not even have to leave the house.
Hello! i have just received a trial to Rouxbe through the Cooking Club of America and am looking forward to trying some new recipes using fresh form my garden vegetables and herbs. I have some skills and techniques learned in my parents restaurant and wish to hone them to excellence.
I am anxious to try some of the recipes that Rouxbe has posted as the pictures make them look absolutely delicious! So far my first test has shown 92% an I hope to improve this as I go. Thanks Rouxbe for this wonderful online learning system. Do you send out degrees if one does well?
