How did the Chef learn how to cook and what is his story?

I learn how to cook by first learning how to eat. And how not to eat. What works and what doesn't. How do we Improve upon something If it has not fully been experienced? So I ate. My family was a big part of this but my passion for food grew beyond what my roots could accommodate. Ive never stopped learning how to cook. There is no end in sight. Its like wine. Every year in history is different from the next. Inversely, the same applies for the future. Every culture and every region continues to grow as well. The key to success in learning is to find fundamentals that speak to you and just go for it. Stay on track and don't spread yourself to thin. Find a purpose and find your voice. This is how I learn to cook.
