Learning how to cook...

Hello everyone !!!!

my name is Jonathan, and i'm a 25 y.o. student living in Quebec City (yes, french is my first language!).

A few months ago, I got interested in cooking, and by searching on the net, i came across that wonderful board !

My interest in cooking did not come all of a sudden, I am in fact doing my master in sociology, studying how we consume our food in a consumer society context... And I kinda realized I don't know much about ''how to prepare great food''. My endless curiosity brought me here, and considering I'm almost starting from scratch, I think i'm doing pretty good :)

And I want to thank everyone in advance for their precious advice, and for the kindness of sharing you experience with newbies like me !
