“Whole Heap of Goodness” serves up more than just bountiful recipes celebrating Thilborger’s Louisiana roots. It also shares stories of how Maw Maw, Aunt Annie and other relatives influenced Chad’s home and personal styles, as well as his appreciation of food, drink, family and friends.
“As a 6’4” man from New Orleans with roots deep in the heart of Cajun Country, with a booming voice and even bigger laugh, people always describe me as ‘larger than life,'” wrote Thilborger. “But to family and friends who really know me, it has little to do with my size and much more to do with how I live my life. Essentially, I believe that you get a Whole Heap more out of life when add more spice, more color, or even a tad more effort into the everyday things to make life for fun, more meaningful and ultimately more rewarding"
Filled with 256 pages of brunch ideas, appetizers, soups, entrées and sides, and desserts, “Whole Heap’s” signature recipes include beignets; crab stuffed mushrooms; roasted asparagus, garlic and potato soup; crazy Cajun fettucini; boulette fricassee; and bread pudding.
