In response to Jude's comment above:
1) The thing about Rouxbe is we're not a recipe site. We are focused on skill and technique and offer supporting recipes for cooking school lessons. Once you learn a particular technique, the rest really comes down to flavor combining. This is where recipes from other resources come into play. Once you understand that the recipe is for "making a stew" for example, you can scan the list of ingredients and pretty much throw the method away...because you now know the key steps for making a stew. There are thousands of recipes out there...the flavor combinations may be sensational but the method will lack in direction. So, here at Rouxbe, we are trying to empower you and provide delicious recipes for you to practice. We have to say, just because you make a recipe once, doesn't mean you've mastered it. It takes practice.
2) and 4) There are quite a few fantastic resources out there for flavor combining. This one is difficult to teach - it comes down to experience...and experience is obtained just by practicing over and over and over again (can't say that one enough) and having the courage to try different things. For assistance, you can check out The Flavor Bible and Culinary Artistry.
3) Plating is in the pipeline. Focus on the food first though. Sometimes too much focus is on the presentation and not the food itself.
5) and 6) these will be in the future. Basic skills are on the agenda first.
