This book is a tribute to the past history and present-day charm that has made the Court of Two Sisters restaurant famous throughout the world. The history of the courtyard and the French Quarter offers an intriguing background for the recipes that follow -- recipes that are Creole-inspired, time-tested, and taste-tested by the discriminating palates of tens of thousands of customers.
Brothers Joseph and Jerome Fein paved the way for their children, cousins Jason and Alex Fein, to operate The Court of Two Sisters restaurant. With degrees in hotel, restaurant, and tourism administration and finance respectively, Jason and Alex carry on the traditions established by their fathers while bringing this old dame into the twenty-first century. Considered one of New Orleans' leading historians and foremost television and radio personalities, Mel Leavitt offers a fascinating look at the history of this unique restaurant. In his prefatory text, he attempts to "mute the fabulists, and let history speak quite eloquently for itself."
