I was so disappointed by this book that I actually sent it back. Everything about the book came off as a huge chip on the shoulder of the owners of Brennan's about the success of Commander's Palace...owned by their aunt Ellen.
At first glance, the book looks cheap, with no dust cover and the words "Official" on a banner in the lower right hand corner. The only time I generally see that are on tourist guide books, not cookbooks.
A good portion of the book is dedicated to the history of Brennan's and idol worship of the patriarch of the family, which is admirable. However, they can't seem to talk about Aunt Ellen without getting some jabs in, talking about how she expanded the family business and that four of her six first ventures closed. Well, I think that one of those enterprises (Commander's Palace) certainly makes up for the rest...as they say, you need to break a couple of eggs to make an omlette!
After explaining how they went their separate ways from the rest of the family, the recipe section of the cookbook is very poorly done. The recipes are either extremely simple (3-5 ingredients and very pedestrian) or extremely complicated (10-15 ingredients including other preparations). When another recipe is referenced, unlike other cookbooks where they tell you which page to look for it, this cookbook simply says "see index"; even if the recipe they're referring to is on the next page.
The breakfast section was the most dissappointing of all. You'd think it would be the main focus of the book given the title, but it is merely several versions of eggs benedict with a few swapped out ingredients.

Superbly enhanced with color photography, Breakfast At Brennan's And Dinner, Too showcases original recipes from the menus of New Orleans's world-famous Brennan's Restaurant. From Buster Crab Pecan; New Orleans Barbecued Shrimp; Creole Onion Soup; and Brennan's Blackened Redfish; to Crabmeat Lundi Grass; Tournedos Royal with Sweetbreads; Les Peches Flamees; and the house specialty Brennan Dressing, Breakfast At Brennan's And Dinner, Too is an elegant, "kitchen friendly" cookbook that is as much fun to browse through as it is exciting to draw from for truly memorable dining.

This is a great cookbook from a great restaurant. I haven't tried all the recipes yet, but those I have are great and not too difficult to follow. The egg recipes - eggs benedict, and more unusual creations - are excellent. Also noteworthy are the drink recipes - because you can't have a good New Orleans meal without a drink, right? :) If you want to cook rich, delicious food, this is a great cookbook. Of course, better still, be sure to visit Brennan's when you're in New Orleans.

This book is ok. A bit too complex and using hard to find ingrediants, at least for me in the heartland here. I prefer my book from another Brennan retaurant, Commander's Palace to this one.

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities ever. I love everything about New Orleans, especially the food and one of my favorite places to eat is Brennan’s. Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner: Brennan’s is perfect any time. This cook book contains recipes for some of their most popular, well-known, and delicious dishes. I love how this book is written and designed. The ingredients are on listed on colored side-bars and are listed according to how they are used. The directions are clear, concise, easy-to-follow and understand, and well-written. There are hundreds of recipes to choose from and they include the new haute-cuisine, New Orleans favorites, old favorites that have since been removed from the current menu, desserts, libations, and sauces. The book is beautifully laid-out, organized, and extremely well-written. The historical information, artwork, and photography included is just fabulous. I would have purchased a book for these alone, but as an all-inclusive cookbook, well this is just a dream come true. I am unable to find anything that I don’t love about this cookbook. AND……WHAT EXCELLENT GIFT…. either for yourself or someone else.

Brennan's is no longer in business, so I ordered this cookbook as soon as I found out the restaurant was closing. It is a piece of New Orleans' culinary history. I would highly recommend this book to anyone building a cookbook library.
