Head over to Eater National for a first look at the stunning new cookbook from John Besh, Cooking From The Heart: My Favorite Lessons Learned Along The Way. Eater's Paula Forbes writes:

Like Besh's first two books, Cooking from the Heart is large and glossy and full of huge photos (including a few of a younger Besh gallivanting around Europe, if you're into that kind of thing). The book follows Besh as a young chef learning from and cooking in restaurants across Europe, with his young wife Jenifer and their soon-growing family in tow. He writes about his time spent in Germany's Black Forest region as well as his time in Provence.

The book alternates between narrative passages and recipes of classics— Besh's take on the classics, that is, from choucroute garnie to moules gratinées— with those huge glossy photos bringing on the drool-factor, and the storytelling beckoning back to the halcyon days of a budding chef, and those charming "tiny German mountain restaurants and Provençal estates," where he first drew inspiration. Look Inside the book right here.
