Tthese are the Father's Day recipes to impress – and there isn't a predictable Sunday roast in sight...
Your dad loves burgers, steaks and all of those traditional ‘man food’ dishes. You normally cook them for him every Father's Day, and he never quibbles, but this year it's time to try something new.
Here’s how to show off your foodie credentials with the ultimate Father's Day meal.
A succulent strip of bacon plucked from the frying pan and dripping in its own glorious fatty juices is a wonderful thing. We admit that sometimes our love of bacon gets out of hand, but adding it to a Bloody Mary is a stroke of genius. The peppered bacon adds a hint of smokiness to the breakfast drink that's the last word in savoury cocktails. You'll find it hard to go back to the classic after this.
When it comes to a special occasion, breakfast without eggs is like tea without a biscuit: it’s just wrong. Yes, a full English is a thing of beauty, but a big pan of shakshouka screams, “Dad, I made some effort here.” The real appeal of these poached eggs nestled in a sweet tomato and onion sauce is the good kick of heat that comes from the fresh chillies. Sprinkle with some freshly parsley and et voilà.
Lighten things up by serving the gloriously sticky bird with couscous and an aubergine salad.
We know we said we were going to stay clear of steaks, but this sandwich was too beautiful to pass up. It comes dressed with Asian slaw and shallot salsa, which makes it royalty to us.
As far as flavour combinations go, chocolate and orange will never let you down. Biscotti also last a long time, so you can make them up to a week in advance. Bonus.
Raspberries plus beer plus lemonade plus vodka equals summer in a glass. Cheers.
Make the most of those little green spears with this fresh and zesty dish. The best part? It takes a mere 15 minutes to make but still looks impressive.
The secret to these pork burgers is the addition of chorizo, smoked bacon and a good mix of herbs and spices. Nestle into a bun, add a dollop of aioli and romesco, and pop in some leaves.
What could beat the simple perfection of a chocolate brownie? Adding a couple of generous spoonfuls of dulce de leche into the gloriously gooey mix.
Even young children can help decorate these letter-shaped biscuits with icing and ribbons.
Guys, you had us at bourbon.
