Question of the Day

How did you learn how to cook? Or, if you don't know how to cook, why is it that you've never learned?

Between home economics class and my mom, I left home with the ability to follow a recipe and cook some simple stuff, but it's really been watching cooking shows that I learned the specifics of cooking—the difference between roasting and broiling and braising, which tools to use for which tasks, that sort of thing. And it was through experimenting with cooking for years that I became a decent cook, able to devise my own recipes and understand flavor combinations.

So thanks, Food Network! Basically.
