Dads Tell Us Their Ideal Father’s Day Feast

I asked a few men what their best “gourmet food day” would be and, while this is anything but scientific, there were enough similarities in the answers for me to spot a few trends. I learned that “boy food” may be different from “girl food” but I have to say, this type of day wouldn’t disappoint me one bit.

Here are a few ideas for a Father’s Day feast – inspired by Dads:

Breakfast

  • A kick-butt cup of coffee delivered to bed in a giant mug.
  • French toast piled high with a big side of bacon.
  • More butter and syrup than strawberries.

Lunch

  • Burger cooked over fire. The consensus was that even a takeout lunch with fries beats brunch line ups hands down. If you can arrange to have a BBQ with his friends and family that may be even better.
  • Pick up a whole bunch that he has never tried before: lager, ale etc. And be sure to pick up his favourite too!
  • Cheese platter. Nothing spreadable, nothing fruity. Go for the gusto with aged cheddar and deep funky blue. Set it up in hunks with knives and let him dig in.

Dinner

  • Gotta be pizza and wings. He knows he will go to bed with a bellyache, so no need to re-iterate. Don’t forget: nothing goes better with wings than mind-blowing spice.

No doubt, many men enjoy their salads and sushi but Father’s Day may just be the time to celebrate in a man cave kind of way. Gifts can be gag, but really it’s the gift of time that everyone wants.  How about a coupon for a golf day? A stack of movie tickets? A list of chores the kids will do for him? A guy weekend at a buddy’s cottage? Maybe all the moms and kids can get together and arrange for that kind of fun!

Whatever you do, don’t forget the old adage “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. It appears to be as true now as ever.
