Preparing for a new project

Thank you so much for being here. About a year ago, I sent a letter to Gourmet commenting on an article you wrote, and you were nice enough to email me. I asked you for some advice about becoming a food writer, and you gave me the best advice I have received: "Become an expert in something you love."
Your work is so varied. How do you prepare for a new project? Do you quickly become an "expert" before entering a chef's kitchen, or do you do most of your learning while you're there?
