What basic cooking skills should a beginner know?

kdlalib | Feb 6, 2013 06:30 PM

I'm a beginner cook. I can make pasta, any egg-based dish, and quiche. Maybe a few more dishes, but my cooking knowledge is very limited. I'm trying to become a more advanced cook, so I no longer fear people coming over to dinner or the dreaded work potluck. Ive bought a Joy of Cooking, How to Cook Everything snd Chez Panisse Vegetables to help in my quest. What basic cooking skills should a beginner master? I'm very limited in my meat cooking skills especially.

I apologize in advance: chowhound will probably be inundated with newbie cooking questions from me. Pardon my ignorance.
