Congratulations to me! Today I became the very first graduate of the very first offering of the Rouxbe.com Professional Plant-Based Certification course. I am proud to say I am a certified plant-based professional!
I learned knife skills, basic cooking methods, how to properly sweat, sauté and roast vegetables, how to properly design a marinade, how to season and flavor my dishes, how to create texture and garnishes, oil free and gluten-free techniques, all about the raw food world including fermentation and dehydration, and how to put it all together for weekly meal inspiration and how to throw a plant-based “shin dig!”
My favorite assignment? Homemade pasta. I thought it was going to be super difficult but it wasn’t at all! I bought the pasta roller attachment for my KitchenAid mixer and next thing you know, I had sheets of pasta dough that I shaped into manicotti and stuffed with tofu ricotta. I froze half of the dough and soon I will be making papardelle (post coming soon!)
I uploaded photos of the food I made, I took 18 written assessments, and took 2 field trips. It has been a wonderful experience and it only took me 4 weeks!! Visit Rouxbe.com for more information and to sign up so you too can be a confident plant-based cook!
