When I was a kid my Mum had arthritis in her hands bad enough that she couldn't do much at all some days, so, from about the age of 9, I became her hands in the kitchen. Pretty soon I got interested, so by the time I was about 15 I was cooking full meals on my own and starting to experiment. I would go to friends houses when their parents weren't home and cook meals for bunches of buddies, working with whatever was on hand. People started calling me "Geoff the Chef" 40 years ago and it eventually just got shortened to Geoffchef.
