Rouxbe, pronounced “ROO-be” or “Ruby,” is the leading online culinary school that specializes in plant-based instruction. From knife skills and cooking basics to complex plant-based recipes, Rouxbe is designed to teach cooking techniques that last a lifetime in the comfort of your own kitchen. ‘Tis the season to finally set a meaningful 2022 goal.

This Virtual Culinary School Specializes in Plant-Based Cooking

Rouxbe is more than a cooking show, recipe site, or a set of online courses. This virtual culinary school specializes in plant-based cooking, and more than 650,000 students around the world are learning from expert chef instructors and receiving personalized feedback on their homemade submissions. This virtual cooking program is offered completely online, and students can access all the technique videos as time permits. Rouxbe offers live events with chef instructors and office hours, but students may watch recorded versions at a later date. While Rouxbe provides a suggested timeline and course syllabus to keep you on track, the classes and exercises can be completed on your own time—we love a self-paced set of courses. This means that budding chefs who work or are in school can add Rouxbe courses and certifications to their resumes and build their culinary skill set.

Rouxbe’s Plant-Based Pro Course

Depending on what you’re looking for, Rouxbe offers different entry points and a variety of virtual offerings. Beginners may choose the “Introduction to Plant-Based Cooking” course, while those looking to go broader and deeper into plant-based cookery may opt for the recently updated “Plant-Based Pro” courses. Rouxbe’s “Plant-Based Pro” course is a six-month course featuring vegan-friendly cooking content, complete with new technique videos, instruction, and recipes. Recently updated topics include fermentation, grilling, food photography, meat alternatives, bread making, world flavors, and desserts–some seriously good stuff! The culinary school also features specialty courses, including “Culinary Rx,” a course created with the Plantrician Project to empower students through their transition to a more health-supportive diet and lifestyle. With its wide variety of vegan-friendly offerings, Rouxbe has the culinary courses you need to get cooking!

Anja Grommons


During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
