Rouxbe Is Offering Free Online Culinary Classes

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

New App Brings Home-Cooked Meals From Chefs To Your Stomach

Green-Tea-Cupcakes-Foodie-Shares

Good home cooking can be incredibly difficult to find. A new app called “Foodie Shares” knows that sometimes home-cooked meals are preferable to eating out. That’s why it lets you order food from home chefs to eat at your pleasure.

Like Uber and AirBnB, Foodie Shares does a background check on all the home cooks on the app. Customers can then browse through the various dishes and chefs, order what they want, and either have their meals delivered or go pick them up. The chefs decide what they want to charge for their meals, so prices vary depending on customers’ choices.

Foodie-Shares

So far, Foodie Shares is only active in the Santa Monica and Venice Beach areas of California. However, they have plans to expand their services this summer.

While it looks like this is the perfect place to find a home-style meatloaf or other comfort foods, it features more contemporary dishes to choose from as well.

Foodie Shares can be downloaded through the App Store for free.
