Even before her Food Network stint, Rogers was busy training professional chefs as an assistant resident chef at Sur la Table in New York, according to her LinkedIn profile. While Rogers has been consistently building upon her own personal skills in the kitchen, she’s found meaning in preparing other cooks for their own time behind the stove.
While it’s hard to instruct one-on-one amid the coronavirus pandemic, Rogers has found ways to educate despite the limiting circumstances. Most notably, she filmed an intensive 14-episode cooking course called Startup Library: Cooking, which brings new chefs through all of the fundamental basics of what’s what in the kitchen (via LinkedIn). Whether you want to learn about the proper pans to fry an egg, must-know knife rules when it comes to chopping veggies, or how to use your pressure cooker once and for all, Rogers has it all covered in this crash course, available for $34.99 on Craftsy.
At the end of the day, though, Rogers is all about curating content. She has shared her best knife tips with Inside Edition and occasionally posts recipes on her own YouTube channel. Whether it’s a full-on course on the art of cooking, or a short Instagram Reels video sharing her secret to “the most pillowy Challah,” Rogers has made it her mission to educate other aspiring chefs of all calibers.
