From the Inside Flap:

In New Orleans, Sunday brunch is synonymous with The Court of Two Sisters, which is known for the best Creole dining in the Crescent City. Joe Fein, Jr., the man who restored the building to its former glory in the 1960s, claims that their secret to success is a flavorful mix of mouthwatering food, history, romance, and good service.
The site of Louisiana's governor's mansion in 1732, 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. From its tranquil courtyard gazebo to the elegant dining rooms, The Court of Two Sisters is filled with stories of food and history.
With The Court of Two Sisters Cookbook, you can re-create the feeling of the Court in your own home and sample the same recipes that have long been the favorites of both locals and visitors. Learn to create local staples such as Jambalaya and Shrimp Creole as well as more exotic dishes such as Oysters Bienville and Ceviche, and bring the elegance and romance of New Orleans into your home. This volume also offers a comprehensive history of the city, the restaurant, the foods, and the two sisters.
Mel Leavitt's reputation as a journalist and historian earned him numerous awards and titles in New Orleans, including "the city's unofficial historian." He was a charter inductee into the Greater New Orleans Broadcasters Hall of Fame. His enlightening introduction and the exciting cuisine are just the recipe for showing how the marriage of food, history, and romance makes The Court of Two Sisters a cornerstone of Louisiana food and culture.

From the Back Cover:

In what was once “Governor’s Row” on Royal Street sits a landmark of fine dining: the building known as The Court of Two Sisters. The former residence of foreign dignitaries, governors of the colonial period, and, most importantly, two Creole sisters, it is an integral part of the storied New Orleans atmosphere. The history, menu, and locale have a special flavor that gives the restaurant a heritage of its own and provides a showcase for flavorful Creole delicacies.

LThis updated classic collection offers a full menu of Creole recipes and more than three hundred years of history. From Oysters Rockefeller and Crabmeat St. Peter to Duck à l’Orange and a simmering pot of gumbo, all can be enjoyed long after your restaurant visit is over!

Mel Leavitt’s insightful discussion of the restaurant, its famous two sisters, and the heritage of New Orleans will whet your appetite. Whether you are a local or a visitor, The Court of Two Sisters Cookbook should satisfy your craving for the taste of New Orleans, providing a cherished souvenir for years to come.
