Chef John Besh's fourth cookbook with Andrews McMeel since 2009 was published last week, and his first New Orleans signing event is Thursday (Oct. 8). All of his books are about his devotion to New Orleans. So how is "Besh Big Easy: 101 Home Cooked New Orleans Recipes" different?

In an interview last week at Lüke New Orleans, one of his 12 restaurants, Besh said the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina made him think about who he was a decade ago.
