Reviews - What do customers think about The Kitchen Table: Brennan's of Houston?
Good recipes, but does not have the restaurant standards Mar 13, 2007
First off if you love Brennan's you are going to love this cookbook. With that being said if you are looking for the recipe for their pralines, or the banana's foster, you need to look at one of their other cookbooks because this book isn't filled with the traditional recipes that we all know and love Brennan's for.
This book was lovingly created, and has many unique recipes. Recipes contained in this book are those that you would expect to find in a finer dining establishment. Satsuma orange jelly, warm spinach salad, Heirloom tomato salad, are just a few of the recipes in this book. The book contains a good selection from all courses of dinner; meats, baked goods, vegetables, and additional items to make a meal complete. There are photos of each and every recipe, the photos make you want to go into the kitchen and start cooking immediately.
While many of these recipes are very good, I had personally expected this to have more items I would see on the menu. One of the appeals of Brennan's is its classic standards that you come to enjoy. This book contains none of these recipe, but it does contain other good recipes that an adventuresome cook would enjoy making.
Superb Book Jan 31, 2007
My wife and I purchased this book at a local book signing in Houston a few months ago. We have since prepared meals with about 10-12 recipes from this book. They have all been superb. Randy's recipe for chateaubriad is absolutely incredible. The recipe for Lyonaise potatoes is wonderful. The crawfish piquant recipe is outstanding. Overall it is a very attractive cookbook and the photography is superb. I do recommend this fine book.
