If you are thinking of specializing in an area of culinary like – Chinese, Mexican, Japanese recipes; start from the beginning. Buy a cooking book of the same. Don’t buy too advanced book, it will confuse you and you will not be able to follow many instructions. Buy an elementary book, meant for the beginners.

Slowly once you master an area, choose another area of specialization.
Quite often it’s seen that cooking aspirants are inspired and motivated by renowned chefs.

Find someone whose culinary skill you just die for. Make sure you turn friends and visit him or her often and take some culinary tips and secret recipes. Seeing with own eyes will make you learn faster.
Always reading may not help you, seeing live demo will help you to learn faster. Why not learn from the masters of cooking? Watch cookery shows coming on television. Follow them regularly, you will learn really fast. Follow their methodology blindly in the beginning; slowly you may customize the recipes.
Self-help is the best help. Don’t worry about the outcome, cook whatever you wish to. Mix and match ingredients, put spices and ingredients which you think will go well together. It may excel or turn out to be a disaster. But this is how you will learn and also come up with own recipes. Make in small quantities whenever you are experimenting.
What are you waiting for? Step into kitchen and get going.
