If you’re like me, you enjoy cooking from cookbooks (I’m useless in the kitchen without some written instructions on the counter), and already this fall a couple new ones—both with Southern roots—have caught my eye.
First is Besh Big Easy: 101 Home Cooked New Orleans Recipes by John Besh—a great chef, and an enthusiastic hunter who has shared many wild-game recipes with F&S in the past. Besh runs some of the finest and nicest restaurants in New Orleans, but the recipes in this book are simple and soulful and geared toward the home cook. I attended a launch party for the cookbook a couple of months ago, and if the food they were serving (all from the cookbook) was any indication of the rest of the recipes, then this book belongs in the home of anyone who enjoys Cajun comfort food.
