Calling all fans of Your Gal Friday and #DirectedByWomen  There is a surprisingly wonderful documentary on Netflix called Ella Brennan: Commanding The Table.

Directed by Leslie Iwerks, the documentary tells the story of Ella Brennan who ran two of New Orleans successful and innovative restaurants; Brennan’s and Commander’s Palace. She created the jazz brunch, elevated creole cuisine, and hired amazing chefs. Two of the chefs she mentored would become household names; Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse.

There is much more to her fascinating story. Trailer below. Now available on Netflix.
