My Family Table by John Besh.
John Besh is probably my favorite celebrity chef, (although I've yet to actually eat at one of his restaurants). But I loved him back when he competed on The Next Iron Chef and on Top Chef Masters, and there's also the fact that he's a Louisiana chef. I actually bought his last cookbook as a Hanukkah present for my mom, and probably would have bought this for her if she had been alive this past December.
Flipping through this book the recipes look delicious, but I especially love all the pictures of his sons (one of whom is on the cover) and how they're wearing LSU clothes throughout (again if you look closely his son IS wearing an LSU football shirt). I'm excited to cook from it, and hopefully actually have a chance to eat at one of John Besh's New Orleans restaurants.
What did you find in your mailbox this week? And do you have a favorite celebrity chef?
