Purchase a cook bok which is in your mother tongue ()because many names in English you may not be familar) and start experimenting. That is the best way to learn. If there are some grand mothers around, take their suggestions.

Try to watch and record cooking shows, you can learn many recipes there. Try experimenting, when I was just a kid, I already had a passion for cooking of course some ended awfully burnt but then again I tried and tried. I learned from my mistakes. During your first attempt, to prevent a burnt food, try to lower down the fire and when your already an expert you'll soon be able to know when to have a high or low fire (idiotic as it may seem but most burnt foods are caused by not simply turning the knob of the stove). I started with frying eggs and now I guess I have many recipes for cooking eggs. With a dozen of eggs, I can cook 12 differrent recipes for that. Sorry for the long reply, hehe. Just practice and practice. Correct practice makes perfect.

I'm trying to get help on the same issue, adversitycity, so I wont be much help. I can tell you that garlic goes well with meat. Onion goes well in soup and stew. Lemon pepper goes well with veggies. Beef should be cooked fast. Pork and chicken should be cooked slow. Vegetables are best if cooked tender, not mushy. Hope that helps some.

I suggest you buy some cookbooks. I am not a good cook also. When I feel like cooking, I look at cookbooks or search the internet for some recipes.
