My grandma's taught me my foundation in basic Southern cooking - in college it was TV shows or one of the nurses at the hospital where I worked who would take pity on me and try to teach me something. Later in life it was watching Julia Child, Jeff Smith and Graham Kerr. Then I learned how to apply the skill of reading to cookbooks. Now, instead of reading novels I read cookbooks.

I'm a self taught cook.

K My mom tries to cook, ,when she does it is good but she'd rather have a recipe in front of her. Dad on the other hand has always inspired me. He'd always tell me that you dont need a recipe, you just add till it's right. Funny I never thought of my dad as an inspiration.....Ill have to say something to him. Now I consider myself...self taught. I have taken courses to learn more, ,but mostly I love to cook for my family to keep them happy....as they say "A way to a man's heart is through his stomach"....ok now I know why he stays around.....what an awesome topic to learn things you never would think about on a normal basis...hmmm....thanks

I was always surrounded by great cooks, but I am self taught for the most part.
