Rouxbe Announces Availability of Two New Foundational Culinary Courses

The leading online culinary school expands their offerings with The Cook’s Roadmap and Plant-Based Cooking: An Introduction

“Whether the pandemic forced them into their kitchens or they’ve enjoyed cooking for decades, many home cooks want to take their skills to the next level, or are even considering a career in the culinary space, ” said Ken Rubin, Chief Culinary Officer at Rouxbe. “Both of these courses are great introductions to an elevated level of cooking as they provide fundamental skills and knowledge that make creating menus and meals both less stressful and more delicious.”

The Cook’s Roadmap course provides a framework for thinking about cooking food, modeled after the thought process of real professional chefs. This top-down approach helps students not only understand the landscape of cooking, but breaks cooking down into clear, conceptual pieces that can be mixed and matched to better understand, refine or create new dishes. Lessons in this course include knife skills, salads and salad dressings, rice & grains, wheat & gluten, pasta and both dry and wet cooking methods.

Plant-Based Cooking: An Introduction will arm students with the tools needed to live and eat a plant-strong diet, and how to begin integrating more plant-based ingredients into their daily lives. This course will also teach students about steaming, sweating, sautéing, braising, how to make salads, how to cook grains, legumes and so much more.

Both courses are recognized as approved programs by the American Culinary Federation and World Association of Chef Societies. Cooks Roadmap also provides transferable credits from the American Council on Education and both provide CEHs from Association of Nutrition and Foodservice Professionals.
