Description:  Award-winning chef and restaurateur John Besh is a committed advocate for the precious cultural ecosystem that is South Louisiana. 

But John is also a dad and a storyteller. My Family Table, A Passionate Plea for Home Cooking explores his conviction that the simple act of cooking at home can change our way of life. 

Today, so many things get in the way of home cooking that the very word "homemade" seems like a lost cause. But not to Besh. In My Family Table, he offers fresh hope, inviting us into his home to show us that by thinking ahead and thinking smart, we can put delicious food on our own family tables every single day. 

From organizing your kitchen and stocking your pantry to demystifying fish cookery, John shares his rich stories, cooking techniques, and the favorite meals he cooks with his family. He has strategically developed 140 imaginative dishes, including such master recipes as Creamy Any Vegetable Soup and Risotto of Almost Anything -- ideas for meals for which the ingredients can vary depending upon what's in your pantry. 

His recipes are as quick as Cherry Tomato Five-Minute Sauce, as welcome as Pecan-Baked Ham, as warming as Creamy Heirloom Tomato Soup, as kid-friendly as Sloppy Joe Sliders, and as simple as Fried Chicken. 

John's warm, engaging stories are richly illustrated with luscious photographs of the food John cooks in his home kitchen, often with his wife and four sons. My Family Table captures the spontaneity, intimacy, and fun of home cooking, and he hopes it will inspire a national movement back to the family table.
