Where / how did you learn to cook?

Did you mother or MIL cook? Your Gma?  Do you use their recipes? Follow recipes? Do you watch shows? Take a class? Wing it?

I learned mostly on my own. I have asked for recipes from my grandmothers, mother and mil as well as looked up recipes and bought books. I don't believe cooking shows really teach cooking at all.

I learned when I moved out.  I had two or three cookbooks.  I had the rule for a long time no more than 5 ingredients or 5 steps.

I was very lucky to have a wonderful grandma that helped me learn how to cook. Once I had confidence due to her, I began to experience this art on my own - loving it and now teaching my grand-daughter whom I am raising.

I basically learned by being up in the kitchen with my  mom and grandmother's watching them intently.  I do use my their recipes.
