Leading online culinary school Rouxbe has launched a free online food safety course designed for professionals looking to learn more about food safety, as well as those in need of a refresher given the current outbreak.
“The global restaurant and hospitality industry is being significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, as worries over the spread continue to increase,” said Ken Rubin, chief culinary officer at Rouxbe. “It’s now more important than ever that those who handle food—be it a high-end full-service restaurant chef or a member of a retirement home kitchen staff—be up to date and fully immersed in keeping food safe. By offering this course free of charge, we hope many will take advantage of these lessons that, while always important, are even more critical at this time.”
In addition to providing a general introduction to food safety, this course will address specific instructions that food handlers and operators should be aware of regarding the coronavirus and how it spreads. Specific lessons outlined in the course include Introduction to Food Safety; Handwashing; Buying Food; Storing Food; Preparing Food; and Cleaning Up. For more information, visit rouxbe.com.
