Next course begins June 28th. Space is limited.

The FOK course is powered by Rouxbe, the world’s leading online cooking school. Rouxbe was founded in 2005 and has served over 160,000 students in over 180 countries.

Like the teach a man to fish thing. But with plants.

Cooking healthfully for yourself is not just empowering, it’s the way to get the best results. At home, you control the ingredients. And in this course, we’re going to show you how to use them. We’ve partnered with Rouxbe Cooking School and created an online course specializing in FOK-style, whole-food, plant-based meal creation where you’ll learn not only what to cook, but how exactly to cook it.

World-renowned chefs and educators Chad Sarno and Ken Rubin will serve as your lead instructors for the course and introduce you to a whole new level of cooking. Bringing plant-based foods and flavor principles from all around the world, this course will teach you everything from cutting and prepping to using herbs and spices and all of the amazing things you can do without animal products or oils.

In your kitchen. On your time.

The FOK course is unique in the fact that it’s entirely online and accessible from any mobile device. This allows you to learn and practice in the place you’ll be using your new skills and knowledge: your own kitchen. All the while, you’ll have access to live Q&A sessions with your instructors, who will guide you through nine units of plant-based principles and techniques, video lessons, assignments, interactive homework and more.

The next three-month course starts June 28th.
