His books will also be available for purchase and signing.

Inspired by a strong lineage, Jesse Jones is a classically trained chef and author renowned for his modern approach to southern cuisine.

A native of Newark, New Jersey, Chef Jesse's culinary DNA was developed during childhood summers in Snow Hill, North Carolina where his grandmother's cast iron stove was the source of many memorable food experiences.

Today, he continues to be influenced by her legacy, bridging past and present through interpreting classic southern dishes with French techniques.
