The dustjacket includes a brief biography of Lewis on the back cover, his photograph on the front and on the flap it states "Jesse is one of those born cooks ... He is renowned in the Bay St. Louis area of Mississippi, where he has made the Ballard family table famous as a Mecca for visiting gourmets. Of course, his specialties are the Creole dishes of New Orleans ... but the book also contain Jessie's versions of everyday dishes for breakfast, lunch, and supper. The recipes have been set down 'while watching Jesse,' by Edith Ballard Watts and her husband, whose high purpose has been to impart Jesse's secrets - which may mean anything from a key ingredient to a certain motion of the big kitchen spoon."
