My Family Table: A Passionate Plea for Home Cooking
by John Besh
Renowned chef and James Beard award-winner John Besh invites us into his home and shows us how we can put good, fresh, healthy food on the table for our families every day.
In 'My Family Table', the Iron Chef champion makes a case for the importance of home-cooked meals. "If I can help make a difference by cooking simply and sharing what I love to cook, I can possibly help us all use our passions and skills to make our lives better at almost every meal."
John is not only a chef—he is a father and a storyteller. In 'My Family Table', home cooks will have an intimate look into life at home with his wife and their four boys, as John urges others to get back into the kitchen and to gather around the table with family and friends to slow down and reconnect.
With more than 150 color photographs and 140 recipes, each of the eleven chapters of 'My Family Table' provides indispensable, accessible dishes for every occasion. The book also includes special cooking tips and sidebars that will help home cooks maximize their ingredients (and their budgets) and plan meals ahead.
From organizing your kitchen and stocking your pantry to demystifying fish cookery, John Besh shares his favorite recipes he cooks with his family every day. Filled with mouthwatering photographs of each recipe as well as showing John in his kitchen with his wife and four sons, 'My Family Table' captures the spontaneity, intimacy, and fun of home-cooking and will inspire the nation back to the family table.
John Besh reminds us that the ultimate pleasure from a dining experience is the people with whom you share the meal. Chef Besh reminds us to make the memories of a lifetime around the family table.
The recipes are really good and easy to follow. But, take the book as it was intended: A guide to bring your family together with a wonderful meal, great conversation, and memories of a lifetime
