Resources for a beginner learning to cook

What's a good way to learn cooking and avoid the current trend of my life that is best summarized by this xkcd comic: http://xkcd.com/854/ ?


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?

Well, I'd recommmend watching a few episodes of Good Eats (pick a few episodes on food you enjoy). Pay notice not only to the steps he use, but also his explanations on why he has chosen the various steps.

(Concrete suggestions: Episodes on eggs.



The why is important, because in due time, you'll be able to modify recipes based on previous experience.
