1) Watch Good Eats. 2) Practice 3) Goto 1)
In order to learn how to cook one must practice. This is self evident. But - what to cook and where to begin?

(Concrete suggestions: Episodes on eggs.
The why is important, because in due time, you'll be able to modify recipes based on previous experience.
