Read About Food
Read as much as you can. Read about food and read recipes. I read them like I read novels at home in bed. Cookbooks too—find a voice, a cooking voice, that you really like. Whether it's Art Smith or Tom Colicchio, two very different cooks, but they both have great philosophies on food and have so much to teach you.
