Chef John Besh's Family Table

Posted by WMHT Web Editor

On the heels of his successful foray on public television, award-winning chef, restaurateur and father of four John Besh launches a new series championing home cooking. By planning ahead and thinking smart, Besh believes families can put delicious food on their own tables every single day. Shot entirely on location at chef Besh’s home outside his native New Orleans, CHEF JOHN BESH’S FAMILY TABLE features recipes from his latest award-winning cookbook, My Family Table. Each dish celebrates South Louisiana's culinary riches — its ingredients, techniques and heritage. Recipes include: Grandmother’s fried chicken and potato salad, ginger-poached trout, seafood gumbo, pork shoulder and sausage jambalaya, Sloppy Joe sliders, crabmeat eggplant dressing, grilled tomato and avocado salad, fried catfish and coleslaw, creamy heirloom tomato soup, angel biscuits, pork grillades, creamy cauliflower soup, jalapeno cheese grits, whole-roast salt-baked striped bass, lemon ice box pie, banana flambé, and rice pudding crème brûlée.
