Few people are more synonymous with Louisiana cooking than chef John Besh. In addition to renowned New Orleans restaurants like August and Luke, he’s won the prestigious James Beard Award for Best Chef in the Southwest, and has appeared on several Food Network shows and specials as an expert on Big Easy cuisine.
My Family Table: A Passionate Plea for Home Cooking (Andrews McMeel) is his second cookbook, packed with 140 recipes meant for your kitchen table. Featuring full-color pictures of his food, his community, and his family – including his four boys – it’s a rare book that brims with both personality and potential for deliciousness. Now, he’s sharing three of his favorite down-home dishes with Grandparents.com, and we think you’ll like them – especially the Chess Pie – as much as we do.
