Chef John Besh and his wife have four rowdy boys, who bounce to life in the pages of his new book My Family Table. After Huricane Katrina, Besh worked with local hospitals cooking with kids with post-traumatic stress disorder. The idea was to use the “communal pot as a catalyst for healing.”

What he found was that by “helping kids chop and brown and stir, barriers fell and healing began.” In his new book, he takes that message to his own kids, showing the importance of cooking and eating together as a family.
