I am used to learn it by reading the cooking books. But now I learn a good app which provides cooking videos. These videos are very short, usually each dish just lasts about no more than four minutes. So it is easier for me to learn how to cook the new dishes. I really gain a lot of inspirations from it.

@youless You need the book for the exact description of the ingredients, but watching how others do helps to make the right moves. Of course "DOING" is the only way to learn.

Well, I never wanted to learn even though my mom wanted to teach me. I also told her, "No thanks." If I follow a recipe I can cook something decent, but being a vegetarian requires less cooking on my part.

@youless I just remember Mom said all I did was study, so she just gave up and let me study rather than learning how to cook. Not sure what my talent is, but I was a pretty good teacher, so will count that as a talent, perhaps.

I learnt by using the trial and error method. No doubt it was something that my husband had to tolerate. Once I attempted a dish called sweet and sour prawns My husband said it was nice but not to make it again Indeed a sweet and sour compliment

It depends. Sometimes, I go through websites that have the recipes that I want to try while some I go through videos in YouTube especially when they mention a procedure that I need to do and I want them to show me how to do it.

This is a great idea. And it's good if the videos aren't too long.
