I want to cook like the kids on "Man vs. Child"

I just got done watching this show on fyi and got a little jealous. I am 17 and have been cooking since around 4 but my family has always been a little iffy when it come to money and I haven't been able to hone my skills in a lot of the fancy cooking that you see on Iron Chef and what not. Also, my knife skill are atrocious because I haven't found anything to help me learn them. Does anyone here have any sources to help me become more of a five star chef rather than just a cafe chef, whether they be books, online videos, tv shows, or anything else?

Looks like you were born a bit too late to audition for that show. I saw that show's preview on TV the other night. 7+ year old cooks vs. 30 year old cooks.

I'm not sure what the producers were going for with this idea, except for ratings and nothing better to do. TV producers...they truly do suck.

Hi. This website has a cooking school series that would be a good start for you. It was tied up with posting pictures and selling their book when it was first published, so ignore that stuff and scroll down to the lessons. They include reading, videos and homework practicing the skills. I hope this helps: http://www.thekitchn.com/collection/cooking-school-373
