Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2012: USA Winner, Best Easy Recipes Book 2012 IACP Award Winner in the Children, Youth and Family category 2012 James Beard Award Nominee "Of the recently published books by gourmet chefs on home cooking (e.g., Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Home Cooking with Jean-Georges and Rick Tramonto's Steak with Friends ), James Beard Award-winning Louisiana chef John Besh's latest is easily the most beautiful. This stunning volume is filled with intimate photographs of the Besh family in the kitchen, at the table, and outdoors with friends.
