"a lavish and handsome picture book that's more or less a biography of where Besh, the charismatic former Marine, trained and traveled before establishing his several restaurants in New Orleans, particularly the German Black Forest and Provence." (Corby Kummer, The Atlantic)
"By turning to Cooking From the Heart the adventurous among us will be encouraged to cook like a pro-and learn a few things along the way too!" (Diane Hodges, Cookbook Digest)
"There's a gorgeous rusticity and lustiness to recipes ... that speak to his Cajun sensibilities."
"behind each dish there are also well-honed haute techniques, which Besh passes on in carefully photographed step-by-steps for making classics..."
"...the book is a sophisticated crowd-pleaser"new york time (Betsy Andrews, Saveur)
