Description: In New Orleans, Sunday brunch is synonymous with The Court of Two Sisters, whose reputation is world renowned for some of the best Creole dining in the Crescent City. The secret to the restaurants success? "Food, history, romance—and good service," according to Joe Fein, Jr., the man who restored the building to its former glory in the 1960s.
Once the site of Louisiana's governor's mansion, the Court, as locals call it, is now famous for its more recent owners Emma and Bertha, the two sisters of the restaurant's name, and their post-Civil War European boutique. From its tranquil courtyard gazebo to the elegant dining rooms, The Court of Two Sisters has its own story to tell, both in dining and history. With the help of The Court of Two Sisters Cookbook, you can recreate the feeling of the Court at home with the same recipes which have long been the favorites of both locals and visitors. The book is a personal collection of the daily recipes straight off the menu of the famed restaurant, so you can discover the Court's secrets and make them your own!
With local staples like Jambalaya and Shrimp Creole, and more exotic dishes such as Oysters Bienville and Ceviche, you'll have friends making reservations for dinner at your house. Introduced by local historian Mel Leavitt, this volume contains more than just delicious ideas for your dining room. It includes a comprehensive history of the city, the restaurant, the food, and the two sisters.
