About the Author:

John Besh is a chef and a native son dedicated to the culinary riches of southern Louisiana. In his restaurants, entrepreneurial pursuits, and public activities, he preserves and promotes ingredients, techniques, and heritage one mouthwatering dish at a time. Besh grew up in southern Louisiana and has set the benchmark for fine dining in New Orleans. Each of his eight acclaimed restaurants (August, Besh Steak, Lüke, La Provence, American Sector, The Soda Shop, Domenica and Lüke San Antonio) celebrates the bounty and traditions of the region.

From the outset of his career, Besh's talent and drive have earned kudos: Food & Wine magazine named him one of the "Top 10 Best New Chefs in America," and his flagship restaurant, August, was featured in Gourmet magazine's "Guide to America's Best Restaurants" and "America's Top 50 Restaurants." Besh won the James Beard Award for Best Chef of the Southeast in 2006 and received Food Arts' Silver Spoon Award in 2009 for revitalizing the culinary legacy of New Orleans.

Besh's devotion to local ingredients and cuisine also extends to his entrepreneurial projects, including the creation of Besh Restaurant Group Catering; a line of gourmet products; the publication of his first cookbook, My New Orleans (Andrews McMeel Publishing, October 2009); and a follow-up cookbook, My Family Table (Andrews McMeel Publishing, November 2011).

Besh is a frequent guest chef on NBC's Today Show and has appeared on top programs on The Food Network and the Sundance Channel.

Review:

Besh captures the Crescent City's food culture so passionately it's hard to resist. (Boston Globe)

My New Orleans is a beautiful book and certainly coffee-table-worthy, but it's also a wonderful read, chock-full of fascinating information about authentic Louisiana ingredients and traditional seasonal celebrations.  (Austin Chronicle)

My New Orleans: The Cookbook is a must-own for anyone who loves the food and traditions of New Orleans and South Louisiana.  (Judy Blaising, Dallas Morning News)

This vast and glossy book combines recipes, food history and civic pride. It's big, bright and richly detailed: the definitive New Orleans cookbook that's always been lacking.  (Julia Moskin, The New York Times)
