Tenney Flynn, Chef/Owner, GW Fins and Cookbook Author
Since opening GW Fins almost two decades ago, Chef Tenney Flynn, a fisherman and award-winning chef, has developed a reputation as one of the country’s foremost seafood authorities as well as a vocal enthusiast for the bounty of seafood that is available in the Gulf. Chef Flynn is a master of his craft, known to be one of the nation’s most discriminating seafood chefs.
Honoring the quality of the seafood, Chef Flynn has created exceptional recipes that simply pay respect to the natural flavor of each variety of fish, which can now be found in his first-ever cookbook, The Deep End Of Flavor.
THE DEEP END OF FLAVOR: RECIPES AND STORIES FROM NEW ORLEANS’ PREMIER SEAFOOD CHEF is a timeless guide to understanding and preparing all kinds of seafood at any skill level, with whatever fish is available.
A signed copy of Chef Tenney’s groundbreaking seafood book can be purchased at GW Fins or over the phone by calling (504) 581-3467. A non-signed copy can be purchased on Amazon.com.
