Our Online Culinary School is Open!

01 Jan 2010, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in news & buzz

academyYou’ve been asking, so we thought 2010 would be a great time to open the doors of our new online school, the Culinary Media Network Academy. From cooking techniques to lifestyle tips, we’ll be adding the types of classes that will help take your kitchen and entertaining skills to the next level. If you have a restaurant or food business, we’ll also show you how to leverage social media to improve your bottom line with our Restaurant Social Media 101 course.

The walls are freshly painted, and we’ve got some initial pieces live, including some of our favorite recipe collections, sets of Chef Mark’s Cooking Tips and our Entertaining Survival Guide — the perfect companion to our Gilded Fork: Entertaining at Home cookbook. We’ll soon be launching my Bachelor’s Boot Camp (the first victim student is in NYC this week), so keep an eye out for that. In the coming months we’ll be adding more classes in various formats, from text to audio and video courses.

Now here’s where you come in: We need your feedback to create our curriculum! If you have a burning desire (no pun) to learn how to purchase and cook different types of meats, or if you’ve always wanted to perfect your knife skills, we are open to your suggestions. Tell us what you want and we’ll create it. If you sign up for the Academy now, you’ll receive special pricing on new classes that come out.

Please add your feedback on the main post we’ve created on the main Culinary Media Network site, and tell us how we can help you take your cooking and entertaining skills to the next level. We’ll see you in class!
