University of Texas & Rouxbe Start Training Program


Vancouver, B.C. (July 28, 2015)

The University of Texas at Austin and the Rouxbe Cooking School are partnering to bring culinary skills training for cooks at multiple dining locations on campus.

Rouxbe is pleased to announce the initiation of a training partnership with The University of Texas at Austin, one of the largest and most prestigious public universities in the United States with over 50,000 students and 500,000 alumni.

The University of Texas at Austin is focusing on creating new approaches for training cooks and other culinary and foodservice staff to provide a dining experience that reflects the health and wellness needs of the entire university campus community.

The establishment of The Dell Medical School has further elevated the overall awareness around the food, nutrition and health conversation. Food and cooking play important roles in overall campus health and the effective use of technology that Rouxbe enables helps more innovation forward.

The training program consists of instructional content that focuses on foundational cooking techniques used in a professional kitchen. Whole foods and plant-based foods are emphasized throughout to highlight a technique driven approach to learning how to use fresh ingredients to build flavor to suit a range of dining needs and preferences.

In addition, participants can track their learning, take assessments to verify progress, and review course content on demand. Rouxbe course content, consisting of close up HD video instruction and adaptive learning exercises, is available 24/7 from any internet enabled device.  Participants will be given access to iPads to learn and complete assessments on the job.

“The University of Texas at Austin shares Rouxbe’s commitment to innovation and health in foodservice. We are proud to offer this training solution that directly supports their  team and gives them the tools needed to learn and meet the changing demands of guests.” said Joe Girard, Rouxbe’s CEO and co-founder.
