Nowadays I have a lot of free time between classes, so I thought that I might as well use this time and learn to cook, also because I need to get healthier. What are some nice resources for complete beginners like me?

[spoiler]I started watching Ramsay's Cookery Course but I doubt I can find many of the ingredients use there and it also looks way too complicated for someone who knows zero about cooking, but if that's the only way I guess I'll bite the bullet.[/spoiler]

My advice would be to buy 1-2 kitchen appliances that can make certain jobs in the kitchen MUCH easier. My key appliance is my rice cooker. If i wanted spaghetti and breads I would have bought a kitchen aid.

After that think of all of your favorite foods that you get from restaurants. Google/youtube easy <insert favorite food here>. Skimp out on ingredients that you think could be option if you are on a tight budget. Then you realize that cooking most dishes is simple as long as you have the ingredients and are cooking for yourself / not a customer.

I really learned everything from youtube. I found youtube recipes much easier to follow than text recipes. I also always watch youtube on 1.25-1.5x speed.

I am still learning a lot but now that I have some ingredients stocked up like salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic, ginger, canola oil, sriracha, soy, teriyaki, bbq sauce, worcestershire, fish sauce, honey, sugar, breadcrumbs, mustard, flour, i can do almost anything I want without having to buy too many ingredients.

Every week when i go to the grocery store i try to add one more pantry item that can be used to potentially deepen other recipes.

I've found the easiest way to learn to cook is to set a goal: name ten dishes you'd like to make before the end of the month.

The key to learning how to cook is by having certain dishes in your repetoire- you'll begin to notice patterns in preparation of each item and similarities between dishes.

When deciding on a dish, don't just look at one recipe and say "that's the one." Look at five recipes and find the similarities in the cooking process - it will give you a better idea of how to cook the dish. Also, don't be afraid of fresh vegetables and herbs- buy yourself a nice chefs knife and enjoy the process.
