by John Besh

(Andrews McMeel, $45)

This glorious book is award-winning chef John Besh’s testament to his beloved hometown. Most of the book follows the city’s gastronomic calendar, highlighting celebrations (like Mardi Gras, Easter, Passover, and Réveillon) and ingredients (oysters, chanterelles, blackberries, speckled trout, and the like) in their season. Besh honors classics like gumbo, but he also breaks with tradition, perfuming spoonbread with truffle oil (not bacon fat) and serving garlicky aïoli (not cocktail sauce or lemon) with big, meaty Louisiana oysters.
