One of America's greatest restaurants, Brennan's in New Orleans is known worldwide as a home of fine cuisine. "Breakfast at Brennan's" is a longstanding tradition among sophisticated visitors to the city. This collection of the Brennan family's distinctive Creole recipes was first issued in 1961 and has remained a favorite ever since.
Author and columnist Hermann B. Deutsch recounts the fascinating story of the Brennan clan, telling how a family of poor Irish immigrants rose to become the premier restaurateurs in New Orleans. Numerous photographs and drawings illustrate the history of the family and their restaurant.
The more than 150 recipes in the book include such time-honored Brennan's favorites as Bananas Foster, Trout Amandine, Pompano en Papillote, and Eggs Benedict. With more than 155,000 copies in print, Brennan's New Orleans Cookbook is a classic compendium of superb food from one of the nation's finest restaurants.

About the Author
Hermann B. Deutsch (1889-1970) was a New Orleans journalist and author born in the town of Brüx, Austria-Hungary, now called Most, Czech Republic. He wrote for the New Orleans States-Item for more than four decades and for publications such as the Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Collier's Weekly, and the Literary Digest. Deutsch's books include Pelican's The Incredible Yanqui: The Career of Lee Christmas. He frequently wrote about Louisiana, with a focus on New Orleans and its cuisine.
Deirdre Stanforth's first professional career was as a commercial artist and illustrator, but as she is the daughter of Tess Crager, owner of the fabled Basement Bookshop in New Orleans, it was perhaps inevitable that she would eventually turn to writing as well. Born in New Orleans, Mrs. Stanforth earned her bachelor of arts degree at Newcomb College and did graduate work at the Tyler Art School in Philadelphia.
