Father’s Day Gifts For the Culinary Man

My husband’s birthday is at the end of May so I don’t change gears to Father’s Day preparation until after Memorial Day. Kind of a quick turnaround as I usually try to plan way ahead for holidays, but it is what it is. Due to the speed I have to organize Father’s Day with I tend to go with a theme for our day’s activities and gift.

This year, it’s all about a culinary experience! For his activity, I’m sending our Dad of the Year (and yes, he has totally earned it!) to a half day class at the Seattle BBQ and Grilling School. He’ll be able to expand his grilling knowledge while feasting on what he prepares – YUM! For his gift, I’m toggling between a number of options … what would you pick for your culinary man? Weigh in, I need to order something soon!

Man vs. Food Seasons | If Adam Richman isn’t funny enough, his television show gives great ideas for restaurants to visit. Thus far, we’ve only made it to the Big Texan in Amarillo, but this summer we’re hoping to make it to Red Mill Burgers in Seattle.

Whiskey Rocks | All the rage and seriously worth the investment – you’ll never go back to regular ice.

Omaha Steaks | The way to any man’s heart is through his stomach and Omaha Steaks are sure to deliver. Haha, because yes, they deliver straight to your front door!

BBQ Corn & Skewer | What an awesome grill addition! I’ll have to admit, this would be partly for me … I love grilled corn.

Homemade Beer Kit | Making beer at home is much easier than it sounds, we’ve loved the few batches we’ve made and are ready to pick up a new kit/recipe soon.

Cutco Knife | Nothing is better than a sharp knife when working in the kitchen.

Bone Suckin’ Sauce | Stock the pantry and pair with pulled pork for a Father’s Day feast. Everyone will be happy!

Monogrammed Cutting Board | I can totally see my husband turning a cutting board with his monogram into a family heirloom. If the kiddos turn into foodies like him, I’m sure they won’t complain.

Steak Brand | What better way to serve up a steak during a backyard BBQ party than with your family’s initial or personalized brand?

So, what should I order? Or even better, what would YOU purchase for a dad wanting to boost his culinary expertise?
