    Georges Perrier. He has an excellent book called "Georges Perrier Le Bec Fin Recipes" that showcases some of his recipes from the world renowned Le Bec Fin restaurant in Philadelphia. You can find his book on Amazon.com here:

    Boy, is that a question open to debate...like asking who's the most beautiful woman in the world.

    First, decide what kind of cooking you personally love the best, and then specialize in it like Paula Deen, who's specialty is country cooking.

    Second, you need to read about cooking terms, and techniques, that would apply to whatever kind of food you're cooking. A good read on cooking "basics" is what I would recommend that you start with.

    If you can't afford Chef's school, then I advise that you apply for a job in the kitchen of one of the better restaurants in town, and start at the bottom. If you're really serious, and work hard, the chef will take you under his wing and teach you all he knows.

    Good luck.
