Five delicious food memoirs to drool over

At B&N Reads Madina Papadopoulos tagged five delicious food memoirs, including:
Miss Ella of Commander’s Palace, by Ella Brennan and Ti Martin

New Orleans is one of those cities that instantly conjures up images of food and fine dining. Just the mention of “The Big Easy” sends déjà vu taste buds and smells swirling through the mind. And couple that with the surname, “Brennan,” well; brunch is pretty much served. The Brennan family of New Orleans has a long history as restaurateurs, among the most eminent is the inimitable Ella Brennan, leader of Commander’s Palace, first established in 1893. The book, whose colors recall the restaurant with its vibrant blue and white, follows the story of Brennan’s life and career. Brennan co-wrote it with one of her daughters (and restaurant partners), Ti Adelaide Martin.
