I apologize for not getting back to you sooner.
To start in the culinary arts world, you should start at a culinary college. even though most some culinary schools cost more than others, it comes down to how much work you put into learning what you can. so, starting at learning how to cook form a culinary science viewpoint may give you a leg up from others who are just learning culinary. and you may like culinary science. there you can research and develop food recipes, learn why an egg coagulates in different parts first. Harvard's physics class brought in a chef to explain the different views between physics and cooking and the videos are on YouTube, very interesting.
Anyways, if you are not into culinary science, either way learn as much as you can from the web, different books and so forth. If you have a LinkedIn account, you can follow different chefs for their advice as well.
The culinary arts world is full of ever-changing trends, and you will not run out of resources.
While you learn about cooking, cook at home, try new things, develop a way or cuisine of your own and run with it.
