Cook Better with Rouxbe

Rouxbe Pic


Rouxbe is a great new site I just found out about this morning. It’s technically a recipe site with videos that shows you step by step how to make some very gourmet dishes. According to their site…

Rouxbe connects professional chefs with home cooks: people like you, who love food and are looking to expand their culinary repertoire and improve their skills in the kitchen. We offer online instructional cooking videos that walk you step by step through each delicious recipe. And our video recipes provide what no cookbook can: audio and visual cues that professional chefs use as their guides to preparing great recipes. It’s like having a private cooking school in your home, with professional chefs at your service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Right now you can sign up and use the site for free for 30 days. If you send an invite to someone and they accept, you get another 10 days free. You will eventually have to pay for membership, but 15% of your fee goes to help fight hunger. Memberships range from $50 for an annual fee, or $100 for a lifetime. A bit pricey, maybe, but if you’re going to go splurge on a bunch of cookbooks or a personal chef, this seems like a better choice.

Rouxbe cooking videos provide home cooks with a revolutionary instructional cooking experience because:

  • We focus on the food and learning how to prepare it, not celebrity chefs
  • We walk you through the entire cooking process, from first chop to final plate
  • We shoot our videos close-up to highlight techniques and skills
  • Rouxbe is free of annoying pop-ups, and there are no ads before our video recipes
