In this, his fourth big cookbook, the award-winning chef John Besh takes another deep dive into the charm and authenticity of creole cooking inspired by his hometown, New Orleans.
Besh Big Easy: 101 Home-Cooked New Orleans Recipes, is a fresh and delightful new look at his signature food. Besh Big Easy will feature all new recipes and easy dishes, published in a refreshing new flexibound format and accessible to cooks everywhere. Much has changed since Besh wrote his bestselling My New Orleans in 2009. His restaurant empire has grown from two to twelve acclaimed eateries, from the highly praised Restaurant August to the just opened farm-to-table taqueria, Johnny Sanchez. John's television career has blossomed as well. He’s become known to millions as host of two national public television cooking shows based on his books and of Hungry Investors on Spike TV. Besh Big Easy is dedicated to accessibility in home cooking and Orleans cuisine. "There's no reason a good jambalaya needs two dozen ingredients," John says. In this book, jambalaya has less than ten, but sacrifices nothing in the way of flavor and even offers exciting yet simple substitutions. With 101 original, personal recipes such as Mr. Sam’s Stuffed Crabs, Duck Camp Shrimp & Grits, and Silver Queen Corn Pudding, Besh Big Easy is chock-full of the vivid personality and Louisiana flavor that has made John Besh such a popular American culinary icon. Happy eating!

Besh Big Easy (101 Hone Cooked New Orleans Recipes) by John Besh. Great cookbook on New Orleans cooking. I love the beautiful pictures and they looked great on my tablet. The format of the recipes makes it easy to read and follow. This would be a great addition to anyone’s cookbook collection. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

John Besh’s Besh Big Easy Cookbook is filled with luscious recipes and photographs. The recipes are what I would consider old-fashioned, home-style cooking you would feed family and friends. One of my favorite photographs in Besh’s cookbook is the photo of the Creole Stuffed Peppers. The photo turns the humble bell pepper into a jewel-toned feast for the eyes. In fact, the photos used to illustrate the recipes are absolutely beautiful and help kick this cookbook up a notch when it comes to readability. Note: I like to read cookbooks like novels so perhaps that’s why I enjoy how cookbooks are illustrated. At the beginning of his cookbook Besh lists some of his favorite recipe ingredients used to prepare his recipes. You will find a description with each ingredient listing and clear explanation of how the ingredient is used. Besh also includes a recipe called My Creole Spice Jar which you can use in your daily cooking, if desired. Besh has included a wide variety of recipes that range from appetizers to dessert. Some of the recipes you’ll find in his cookbook include: *Creole Stuffed Peppers *Quick & Dirty BBQ Shrimp *Crabmeat-Stuffed Flounder *Andrew’s Pan-Fried Pork Cutlets *Grandmother Grace’s Fried Chicken *Beef Brisket Daube *Grilled Okra *Field Peas in Pot Liquor (Just right for a New Year’s Day dinner as eating peas brings you good luck, according to my grandma.) *Jenny’s Potato Salad *Divorce Soup (read the book and you’ll find out about the soup’s name) *Suzanne’s Peach Pie *Bananas Foster Recommend.
