So rewarding! I am no longer paralyzed by the idea of making dinner for my family. I loved how the focus was to get me cooking more and now I do cook more and I feel better.

Emily Sui

If I can learn this much about cooking healthy meals, then I am convinced that anyone can. I feel like I am in control and I can now make the food I want to eat.

Danton Parker, Student

I'm no chef, but I can make soups and salad now. My wife of 32 years cannot believe her eyes. I feel it's pretty good for an older guy who never cared much for the kitchen. It's actually pretty fun and I absolutely know it's good for me.

William Wagner, Jr.

This course has given me the confidence I need in a kitchen and reiterates and supports my way of life and now I feel better and more confident about recommending this diet to all.

So many people want to eat healthy and don't know where to begin or are sadly misinformed. This course is for people who want to make a healthy choice and are open to expert advice, and proven studies. It is a course that shows you that with a little planning and some basic skills and knowledge that you really can eat healthy and avoid the overly processed foods that are so prevalent in today's fast food restaurants and prepared grocery store meals.

This course will help them gain the confidence and knowledge to tackle this all. I loved this course and would highly recommend it.

I highly recommend this Culinary Rx course. I have been wanting to adopt a Plant Based Diet for quite a while but needed to understand how to put meals together to have balanced meals. This course explains the different ways to make this happen. I have more confidence in my meal preparations, my new learned knife skills are fun and practical. I am one appreciative student. Excellent course. Take it you won't be sorry.

This course has given me the opportunity to better embrace the plant-based lifestyle and take some of the mysteries and guesswork out of preparation methods.

This course is life changing in skills, knowledge, habits, and health for me and my family. The batch prepping/ cooking makes it EASIER and more ENTICING to eat healthy than to grab over-processed low nutrition food.

Barbara Perlik

This class has given me more confidence in the kitchen as I cook with real food from scratch without spending hours in food preparation.

Elizabeth Berg

Although I worked as a "Vegan Baker/Vegetable Engineer" for over 2 years in a vegan prep kitchen, I have learned so much during this course! I've been able to refine existing skills and develop new skills. Because of some of the techniques I've learned in this course, I've been able to cook beautiful, delicious food that even has my non-vegetable eating, teenage son coming back for seconds! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to make a lifestyle change towards healthier without compromising taste and presentation!

Benita Gibbs

I would recommend the Culinary Rx course to anyone wishing to adopt a more healthy, plant based lifestyle.

Annette Nielsen

Culinary Rx came at the perfect time in my life! I'm currently contemplating a career change, and this course reinforced my love for cooking and my desire for cooking and wellness to be a bigger part of my life, either personally or professionally. I feel much more confident about my cooking skills, learned so much, and am eager to learn more!

Karen Maylone

Although Culinary Rx is advertised for plant based cooking it is perfect for an individual new to the kitchen, and really could and should be described as such. You will learn all the fundamentals of the kitchen; from proper knife usage to basic cooking techniques such as steaming, roasting and sautéing. You will learn how to prepare rice, beans and legumes properly. If you are looking for where to start in the kitchen, then this is a class worth taking.

Allison Pensiero

I always thought I was healthy, eating a balanced Standard American Diet. During the past several years I was plagued with pain that I kept to myself. I finally went to a doctor. I went through a series of tests to discover my ferritin level was 1079, the standard range being between 10-291. My liver enzymes were off the chart. I was a candidate for diabetes. To top it off, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. I was plagued with anxiety. I opted to skip any medication and to try a plant-based diet. Today after living a plant based lifestyle, I have no joint pain. My ferritin level is 131. My liver enzymes are normal. My sugar level is in range for the first time since I can remember. I have no anxiety! These changes did not occur due to a single prescription. The only change in my life was living a plant-based lifestyle. If I can make a change to a plant-based lifestyle with a career as a pastry chef, I know others can. Culinary Rx is an awesome class that I recommend to all!

Mary Schaefer

The Culinary Rx course has helped me reassess the unhealthy habits that can lead to disease and discomfort. On a lighter note, my husband just remarked, that he hasn't taken any Tums in awhile and still has a full bottle. I take that as a complement.

Ann Kinney

If the thought of having to change your diet and eating more vegetables makes you want to give up and go the other way, take a look at Culinary Rx. This enlightening program makes being in the kitchen FUN. It's definitely not continuous, boring salads and rabbit food. You'll soon be exploring a whole new world of tastes, colors and possibilities. There's even desserts and snacks! Best of all, your body automatically responds. No more dreadful dieting!

Sara Chute

I highly recommend this course for anyone that is struggling to understand the right foods to buy, cook and eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It has made all the difference in turning me around to eat healthy by giving me the knowledge I needed.

Kathy Follin-Jackson

I would say to anyone who is concerned about the physical well-being of themselves and their family, to seriously consider transitioning to a plant-based diet, and the best way to start is to sign up for Culinary Rx.

Gloria Michin

For many of us, using whole grains and legumes is not within our experiences as we learned to cook. Most traditional cook books devote little if any time to these. This course taught me how to properly prepare these items and the recipes gave me a place to start. Once we know what we are looking for and feel confident that we can follow such recipes, we are half way toward a healthier diet.

Donna Dworak

I went into this course with an open mind. As a vegan and chef, I was not sure what I would get out of this course. However, what I gained was more than I imagined and it has helped me with the cooking classes I am currently teaching as well as in my own home. I am now more motivated than ever to prepare creative meals at home.

Wysteria Sadhana

I'm amazed at how easy it is to cook for a plant-based lifestyle. I feel great, have lost weight, and don't get cranky around 4pm like I used to. I look forward to trying new foods and new recipes shared here. I'm excited to get in the kitchen again. I'm also thankful for the knowledge I gained about nutrients and that while eating a plant-based diet, I will get everything I need and much more! This is the start of a new chapter for me and my family.

Carrie Kennedy

I recommend Culinary Rx by Rouxbe and The Plantrician Project, as it is one of the most complete culinary courses on the path to a plant-based nutrition for overall improved health. Theory and techniques are all there to support your learning.

Josette Thompson

I have loved cooking for many years. I have taken a few online cooking courses, but this course is first class all the way. Not only are there fabulous videos that are easy to follow, the text is easy to comprehend, the content of the material is superb, and the recipes are all delicious and easy to implement.

Kathleen Heitmann

I wish more people would take the time to learn skills to nourish their bodies and keep themselves well. This course does an excellent job by covering cooking techniques as well as importance of plant-based nutrients and nutrition to promote health and wellness. I would definitely recommend this course.

Kristin Ashdown

Culinary Rx is a great course, with great instructors, and very engaging content. Whether you know very little about a plant-based diet or a lot, you will learn a lot of new information about food and cooking and new skills in the kitchen in this course.

Amanda Hatherly

I LOVED the class! Even though I knew a great deal of the information on the reason for a plant-based diet, I enjoyed watching the videos and reading the material. It reinforced my decision to go plant-based. May sound a little odd, but I found myself smiling a great deal of the time, simply because I was enjoying the course so much! I feel that it is basic enough for people who are being newly introduced to this way of eating, but very enjoyable even for someone who wants a refresher. Some of the hands-on cooking info was very new to me. I liked being able to watch it until it "sank in" and I grasped it. I am planning to go thru all the material again, after I have so time to practice the cooking. Well done!

Sandra Shepherd

Take the Culinary Rx program. I am certainly glad I did. This well designed program is time well invested in your future health. It gives you a firm foundation on which to build your culinary skills, and it showcases just how easy and delicious a plant-based diet can be.

Cate Berry

The Culinary Rx course has given me more confidence with cooking. I now looking forward to cooking everyday!

Shelly Mehr

Culinary Rx was a fantastic short course that helped me improve my cooking techniques and skills. I thought I knew a lot about food preparation, but was amazing at all Iearned in this course. This course really does 'teach a man to fish' which is much better than feeding a man for a day!

Kirsten Walker

I have a new respect and appreciation for a Vegan lifestyle. I always thought it represented an inferior diet, and I now understand my original thinking (for the last 50 years) may have been significantly flawed. Thanks!! - Jim

Kathy & Jim Thornsberry

Culinary RX is a very engaging and empowering program that has the potential of transforming the nutritional landscape for the masses. Learning the fundamental prepping and preparation techniques are the foundational knowledge that is missing in most people's kitchen experience ever since home economics was removed from the curriculum in schools many years ago. Culinary Rx fills that void. I hope this program is made more accessible and affordable to everyone on the path to better nutrition and disease prevention/reversal.

Denise Johnson

For anyone considering eating more healthful, Culinary Rx by Rouxbe, is a great way to learn fundamental a nutrition and cooking basics to incorporate more fruit, vegetables and grains into your diet.

I believe that the Culinary Rx course is right on target with helping individuals take control of their health.

Thank you Rouxbe for making this possible!

Beth Billups

To physicians out there who want to help themselves and their patients change to a healthier diet, but who do not have the basic knowledge of how to shop for, prepare, and cook whole foods, this course is an excellent start, from learning how to choose and use a chef's knife, through basic cooking techniques for whole foods. The information is provided in manageable sections, complete with self testing.

Sue Beem

I feel more prepared to cook healthy meals with this program. I have been student of vegan plant-based cooking for a couple years.
