Catch-up post for the past week

Well. I’m back from NOLA, where a large time was had by all. Notably, I got to meet John Besh (Restaurant August, Luke, Best Steak, Domenica, Borgne, La Provence, Willa Jean, Johnny Sanchez, Shaya, and he plans to open eight more in the next two years!). 466 more words

Top Chef: Hot Hot Heat

Sorry this is late, guys!  The right-before-the-holidays hustle and bustle gets you, am I right?!  Just as it’s getting cool over here on the East Coast, we check in with Top Chef: California in Palm Springs where the chefs experience some extreme heat! 305 more words


New Orleans, Louisiana: Borgne

For our last night in NOLA, we went to Borgne, which is a John Besh collaboration and it was AMAZING.  The menu is centered around seafood and is inspired by fishing on Lake Borgne, a major source for seafood in coastal Louisiana.   379 more words

What’s Willa Jean?

I sat in 95 degree sweltering sun for over an hour to watch John Besh make courtbouillon on an outdoor stage facing Pensacola Beach. I claimed my free front row seat and wasn’t giving it up for shade or water. 496 more words
