    • Oscar-nominated filmmaker, Leslie Iwerks, brings to light the remarkable story of Ella Brennan, a leading force in the contemporary restaurant business who changed the way we eat and overcame challenges of being a woman in a male dominated field. With the success of New Orleans iconic establishment Commander's Palace, restaurateurs and chefs from all walks of life credit the important role Ella has played in building and enhancing American cooking and hospitality. With interviews with current and former chef including Emeril Lagasse, Danny Meyer, Tim and Nina Zagat, Daniel Boulud, Jeremiah Tower, and many more. Before the food business became show business, one woman led the way.
