Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
"In New Orleans, Besh is a hero...in his new cookbook, he trades the meticulous technique of a professional kitchen for a more streamlined approach to food—the kind his mother and grandmother used to cook."
"The restaurant- and travel-oriented books might bring all the dazzle, but home cooking is the heart and soul of cookbook season. This season’s lineup is dominated by a passel of professionals who invite readers into their homes: chefs like John Besh.”
"Besh wrote this book less as a James Beard Award-winning chef with a dozen restaurants to his name and more as a busy dad eager to serve his family the kind of delicious, soulful food he was raised on (think hearty, one-pot dishes like Chicken and Sausage Gumbo).”
"John Besh's cookbooks are, generally speaking, great—fun to read, dependable to cook from. In his latest,Besh Big Easy, he strips his signature New Orleans-style food down to its roots. Or, as he puts it, 'There's no reason a good jambalaya needs two dozen ingredients.’" (Epicurious)
"Dedicated to accessibility, James Beard Award–winning chef John Besh really is trying to make New Orleans classics like gumbo and po’boys easy for the home cook. Jambalayas are made with less than ten ingredients but still produce classic Nola flavor. With 101 recipes at hand, there’s no reason to not bring the French Quarter home with you." (Food Republic)
"This book will be welcomed by the novice cook, the person just dipping their toes into the flavors of Louisiana, and anyone else who enjoys a good home-cooked meal." (Louisiana Kitchen & Culture)
"(a) great storyteller who puts you in the mood to cook . . . the Christmas present of the year."
"[John Besh's] fourth cookbook begs to be dog-earred and stained. The recipes are his simplest to date."
“Down-home New Orleans as interpreted by a native son." (The Times-Picayune)
“This is a little bit of heaven." (The Today Show)

With the weather getting cooler I am already working my way through the soups and stews chapters- that's another thing I really like about this cookbook, the chapters just make sense. A whole chapter just for the different Gumbos, another for Jambalayas, another for Stews- everything very easy to find.
Just a really great cookbook overall and I can't wait to try out all these recipes and pick up some of his other books.
