Cookbook Reads

On those lazy weekend afternoons when Mango and I are just strolling about town, we like to pop into our local Barnes & Nobles and spend hours reading books in a little corner drinking steaming hot lattes. This weekend we decided to start in the cookbook section and stumbled upon John Besh's latest cookbook...

My husband fell head over heels in love with the amazing photography and the recipes. He spent the entire time looking through the book pointing out dishes he remembered eating when he grew up in New Orleans. We ended up putting it back on the shelf, but as we walked out he kept talking about that cookbook and how he would love to try some of those recipes.

So, yesterday I ordered it for him! Shhh! Don't tell. It should be getting here this week, perhaps this weekend we'll be cooking up some shrimp creole!

My family and I ADORE John and his restaurant August in NOLA. So many great meals there, his food is incredible.
