Here is another great cookbook from Brennan's! This one is from their Houston Texas location titled...
BRENNAN'S of Houston In Your Kitchen
It is a Hardcover with dust jacket. Copyright 2001. Published by Bright Sky Press. With 192 pages including index.
The dust jacket shows just a little wear at the edges from use and re-shelving. Very small repaired tear at bottom edge of dust jacket. The front flap of the dust jacket has a crease running from the top to the bottom of the flap from a hasty close. Top tips of the covers have a small bump from being re-shelved. INSIDE the pages are at least 99% free of any marks, stains or writing.
Proving that Creole and Texas styles are kitchen-compatible, Chef Carl Walker artfully presents these distinctive tastes at the acclaimed Brennan's of Houston. Capitalizing on fresh ingredients available at his back door, Chef Carl injects his culinary magic into every dining element and reveals his own kitchen tips and techniques.
This beautiful 192-page book is a triumph for Chef Carl Walker. This eclectic and inventive collection of recipes has been carefully accented with full-color photographs and personal anecdotes. It is a wonderful gift for fans of Brennan's, and even for home cooks who have never made their way to Houston.
The book is organized by course: Beginnings (Lagniappes, Drinks, and Appetizers), Garden and Beyond (Salads and Soups), Breakfast, Meats and Poulty, Seafood, Accompaniments (Sides, Sauces and Seasonings), and Fantastic Desserts.
Each recipe features an expected yield, list of ingredients, paragraph-style instructions on how to prepare the ingredients, and a Chef's Tip. The Chef's Tips include technique suggestions, ingredient substitutions, and reminders on how to prepare the raw ingredients.
The desserts section is especially decadent. For example, the Chocolate Praline Cheesecake is a masterpiece by Pastry Chef Melissa Piper Reilly. This luscious dessert uses a chocolate crumb crust filled with caramels, pecans, and chocolate-laced cheesecake filling.
