Message from Lead Instructor Chad Sarno

Ever since I made the connection between how the foods we prepare affect our health, it has been my personal mission to share with anyone that would listen, that we can take control our health starting in the kitchen. Rouxbe was a perfect fit to make this mission a reality. With their incredible global platform and commitment to groundbreaking quality instructional videos, Rouxbe is a game-changer in the world of online education.

I am thrilled to be able to lead Rouxbe's Plant-Based Professional Certification Course. Breaking it down to the basics and starting from the ground up is essential knowledge for anyone that shares this mission around this approach to cooking. Join me in building a plant-based army of educators and advocates to spread this message to the world- for our health, for real food and for our planet.
