Back. Besh. Books.

Hello out there! I know you must have thought I vanished.
It was a busy week and I feel like soon I should be back on blogging track.

I just returned from spending a few days in New Orleans, one of my favorite cities and of course it was a great time. As always the case when I visit, our trip was filled with tasty meals. Before heading home I had the chance to dine at Lüke, one of John Besh's restaurants. We popped in for lunch and the chef himself stopped by too. The food at Lüke was excellent and I'd highly recommend it if you are ever in town.

John Besh himself made a pit stop at our table to say hi and I got him to autograph a cookbook to me. I'm really excited because a few of the recipes from the menu are in the book, so it will be fun to try them out at home. And if you aren't in town perhaps the cookbook would be a great addition to your kitchen! The photos in the book are beautiful and I love that it tells a bit about the Louisiana culture. Of course each and every recipe in the book looks delish so it would be a wise investment for any foodie.

Tomorrow I'll share another yummy stop. See you then!

*Note, I did not get a photo with the chef. Kind of bummed and kind of sad since I'm a photographer right?


  1. We were in New Orleans last May for a girls trip and went to Luke's for breakfast and lunch both were awesome! I love the feel of the place as well as the food.

  2. I've always wanted to visit New Orleans...

    Sounds like you had a blast! By the way, your blog is lovely :)
