Chef John Besh

You’re in the final countdown, and if you still have a few people left to shop for. Here's a great, last-minute lifestyle-oriented gift. If you have a friend who loves seafood and/or regional cooking, check out celebrity Chef John Besh’s spectacular cookbook, "My New Orleans—200 of My Favorite Recipes and Stories from My Hometown." Chef Besh is a true proponent of regional cooking, and eloquently highlights the passion and undeniable flair of New Orleans cooking. His tales of growing up in the city—as well as rebuilding post-hurricane Katrina—add a great sentiment and depth to a holiday gift. The book is big, dramatic and full of gorgeous color pictures. John Besh’s My New Orleans is available for $45 from Andrews McMeel Publishing, on line and in book stores.
