Newfag here, want to learn cooking. What are some recommended books/guides/sites that I should use? Any tips?

Shit! OK, Google Chef John, and Alton Brown, start watching videos. I like The Joy of Cooking for an all around basic book. Last, go on Allrecipes.com and start experimenting, eat your mistakes and learn.

stock up on olive oil and watch Gordon Ramsay's channel on YouTube

/ck/ is a neglected board.

The best advice I can give you in regards to learning to cook is leave this board immediately and do not return until you have learned a variety of cooking skills.

Youtube is a fantastic source. Stuff with Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and Jacques Pepin (the god of omelette https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s10etP1p2bU) is usually good. I am a great fan of Laura Vitale, too. She shows some good technique and mise en place too, but she can be a little annoying. Avoid videos from "Cooking with Jack" like the plague. Even the professionally trained real chef he once had on the show to teach knife skills was horrible.

Not OP but related as I'm also a newfag
Is there any good source for learning about the impact of each decision in a recipe?
Learning a good recipe and proper technique are nice, but it can only go so far if I don't know why I'm doing what I'm doing

I don't know if getting all nerdy about cooking works. I think the standard approach the chefs take is to mass lots and lots of experience so that you develop taste and start recognising patterns.
>>
>>8492265
If you want to get nerdy with it, there are books about the chemistry of cooking. They will teach you why stuff happens even on the molecular level, so you'll get that as well.

Best cooking advice I ever got was to "cook with confidence."

GO GET 'EM, OP!
