Getting Started — Click the Start Course bar and you’ll be taken to the Course Home View. If you are new to Rouxbe be sure to start with the Platform Tour to familiarize yourself with the course structure you’ll be working in.
When you’re ready, dive into Task 1. Remember, this is a self-paced course so you can begin and pause at any time.
Keep in mind that earning the certificate is optional. If you don't wish to be graded, you are free to simply explore the content, watch the videos, and access the recipes and live events at your leisure. In fact, many students take the course for information only, and that's fine with us!
You have lifetime access to the material! After you complete the course, the only areas locked will be the quizzes, instructor-graded assignments, and the ability to ask new questions via the Q&A function. Other than that, you will still have all the lessons, recipes, etc. to review at your leisure.
Regarding equipment: Your course outlines which items are needed throughout the course. While not all will be used right away it’s important to have them available when the lesson requires. You will need the following:
- Solid cutting board
- Knives. There are three knives every kitchen should have:
– An eight- to ten-inch chef’s knife for chopping herbs and vegetables and slicing meat
– A paring knife for more precise cutting, such as slicing strawberries, peeling and coring apples, or deveining shrimp
– A serrated knife for slicing bread
- Mandoline slicer
- Wooden spoons
- Cast-iron pans
- Food mill
- Potato masher
- Box grater
- Salad spinner
- Food processor
- Slow cooker
