COOKBOOK Chef John Besh has taught the people of New Orleans a lot about cooking and with his new cookbook Cooking from the Heart: My Favorite Lessons Learned Along the Way, he’s sharing recipes and giving shout outs to the people who helped him become the chef he is today. While the number of recipes clearly make this book a cookbook, Cooking from the Heart also reads like a memoir, as it includes stories from his time spent in Germany and France and includes photos from his younger days.


Children’s What the Sleepy Animals Do at the Audubon Zoo is an adorable book for little New Orleanians, especially those who love to go to the Audubon Zoo. Written by local couple Grace Millsaps and Ryan Murphy, the book tells the story of what the zoo animals do when everyone else has gone home. Kids will love the bright illustrations by John Clark IV and Alyson Kilday.


MEMOIR Wendy Rodrigue shares stories from her life in the art world as the wife of George Rodrigue in the book The Other Side of the Painting. Based on her blog Musings of an Artist’s Wife (which can be found at WendyRodrigue.com), the book is a collection of essays by Wendy, chronicling her “art-infused relationship” with George, plus other life experiences.


MUSIC Say That To Say This, the latest album from Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and his band Orleans Avenue, appeals to fans of rock, jazz, R&B, funk or all of the above. Say That To Say This, which was co-produced with R&B singer Raphael Saadiq, is sure to garner Trombone Shorty even more fans around the world, as he’s currently touring across the U.S. and Europe.
