Jesse's Book of Creole and Deep South Recipes

Watts, Edith [Ballard] & John

Jacket. First Edition. 

According to Toni Tipton-Martin in The Jemimah Code, "Jesse Willis Lewis cooked Creole dishes and Gulf Coast specialties that he had learned at his mother's knee in the Ballard home in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. This book is a compilation of more than 340 of his classic recipes...what is mind-blowing is that these authors observe and record the true finesse possessed by one of history's disregarded cooks, providing details without degradation."
