Meet Ella Brennan: mother, mentor, blunt-talking fireball and matriarch of a New Orleans restaurant empire.

In this candid autobiography, she shares her life. From childhood in the Great Depression to opening esteemed eateries, it's quite a story to tell. When she and her family launched Commander's Palace, it became the city's most popular restaurant, where famous chefs such as Paul Prudhomme, Emeril Lagasse, and James Beard Award winner Troy McPhail got their start.

Miss Ella of Commander's Palace describes the drama, the disasters, and the abundance of love, sweat, and grit it takes to become the matriarch of New Orleans' finest restaurant empire.
