Crispy, fried bone-in pork chops speared with a big knife – a recipe Isaac learned from his dad. Isaac’s famous cornbread; Cajun dirty rice; sweet & sour roasted Brussels sprouts; and his grandmother’s Cajun custard pie – TATA bouille. Each dish has a colorful story behind why it’s one of Chef Toups’ must-have Father’s Day dishes. Most of these recipes can be found in Isaac’s new book – the perfect gift for Dad this year!

Let's make dad happy this fathers's day!
