What are the Best Cooking Video Sites ( -- Reviews)

Rouxbe Cooking School   Edinformatics Select -- Rouxbe (pronounced roo-bee) is the web’s first-ever online cooking school. Rouxbe is currently teaching home cooks in 180 countries around the world. Roubxe is different from most other cooking videos in that it is actually designed to be an online cooking school teaching basic to advanced cooking skills and techniques – the same things that chefs learn in a professional cooking school. And, it does this very well using a team of professional cooking instructors who know how to do it right. Besides recipes there are links to cooking tips, techniques, and how to buy the best ingredients. Many of the excellent videos have free access. Full access to Rouxbe requires a membership fee of $99/year or $199 for life. Rouxbe offers a free sample lesson every day and all of their instructional video recipes, text recipes, tip and technique videos and community forums are free. We consider Rouxbe one of the Best Cooking Video Sites currently on the Internet -- if not the best.
