The world is undergoing a slight upheaval at the moment. There’s a pesky bug on the loose that’s caused governments worldwide to quarantine their cities. This sounds like something right out of a summer blockbuster, yet unfortunately, it’s real life. As we collectively come to terms with this slower, socially-distanced, more OCD experience, we’re inevitably faced with figuring out how to occupy our time indoors. 

Rouxbe, the leading online culinary school, has responded to social distancing by offering 30 free days of membership. With this membership, you have access to 13 full culinary courses and 75 lessons, traditional and next-gen culinary foundations and techniques, as well as live events with chef instructors and culinary experts covering a wide range of topics. Ken Rubin, Chief Culinary Officer at Rouxbe, shares their mission:

“With so many of us practicing social distancing — either by choice or mandate —  it is inevitable that we will be eating at home. There is no reason we should settle for mediocre food or processed foods, when it’s possible to learn basic techniques that make cooking with pantry staples not only more enjoyable but also efficient and healthy.  By providing this free trial, we hope home cooks will take an opportunity to learn this important skill while taking care of themselves and their family at the same time.” 

Rubin touches on something very poignant — the idea of making the most out of your time. With all the troubling news and uncertainty, it’s easy to stress out and feel anxiety. Being stuck indoors gives us the opportunity to work on projects, binge watch shows or learn new skills.

Rouxbe’s free 30-day membership is timely and perfectly suited to anyone who enjoys spicing up their household’s meals. You can sign up for your free trial here
