How can I learn to become a good cook?

peddle | Nov 20, 2007 04:11 PM

I would love to learn how to cook- from scratch.. I would love to learn how to make delicious, nutritious, healthy , homecooked foods. I love to eat!! As an african-american lady, I love jamaican and other caribbean foods. Over the years, I have bought literally dozens of cookbooks- some basic, others caribbean. Alot of the cookbooks, however, assume prior knowledge and experience in cooking. I have no experince at all..

Can anyone offer any cooking tips, secrets, advice for the novice or beginner cook? Can anyone recommend any BASIC, ILLUSTRATED, COLORFUL INSTRUCTIVE cookbook that can guide me in the rudiments of basic cooking. A cook book that will explain what to do and the rationale or reasoning behind doing it. Is there any basic or/ and caribbean cooking dvd/video? Any suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You, Dee
