Educates himself? Slightly misleading. He is doing things (like reading books, going to classes) to improve his general knowledge (seine Bildung). "Educates himself" would be "Er erzieht sich selbst" - sure, not the worst thing he can do, but not quite the same as "bildet sich"

And "educate" is not given as a possible meaning!

"The cook forms himself" does work I had no other ideas and expected to lose a heart?

It accepted "the cook forms". I would love to know what he forms! How odd.
