It’s often said that the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If this is true for any kind of man, it’s true for dads. Special treats are a great way to show Dad how much he means to you, while at the same time letting him enjoy the gift on his own terms. When you’re looking for gifts for Dad, consider the memorable flavors of delicious, artisan deli meats and cheeses.
If you’re planning on celebrating with a backyard party or even just a close-knit family get-together, a trip to your local artisan deli can be just the thing you need. From meats and cheeses to crackers and dips, everything you need to host a memorable party will be right at your fingertips. Here are some of our favorite Father’s Day party ideas.
Delicious deli goods
Not all meat is created equal, and dads seem to often have especially discerning palates when it comes to meat. Even though he may know all about what makes meat taste good, not every dad will buy the best stuff for himself on a regular basis. One great way to spoil him this Father’s Day is with a special cut of meat from the deli. From artisan jerky to handmade deli meats, this is a great way to give him a flavor to remember this year.
Organic meats are often of higher quality, as they are held to higher standards in order to pass the organic certification process, though they can also be quite expensive. Grass-fed, grain-finished beef makes for healthy and extremely tasty cuts. For pork and chicken, look for animals that were raised in hormone- and antibiotic-free environments. With chicken specifically, look for free-range animals. If you can find it, air-chilled chicken often yields juicier and more flavorful results when cooked.
Cheeses are another great gift for Dad. Gourmet cheese paired with deli meat is a match made in heaven. Whether he likes spreadable, stinky cheeses like brie or camembert, or prefers sliced cheeses like gouda or cheddar, a deli is your best bet for this. You may want to ask the experts behind the counter for recommendations if you’re looking for pairing suggestions.
One way to leave a lasting impression on Dad this year is with a delicious gift basket of edible delights. This is something he will enjoy for weeks and maybe even months to come, and he will think of you every time he enjoys a snack!
Gift baskets are a great gift because they can be customized to include your dad’s favorite food. They can also be themed. For example, you can put together a snacking basket with a wide variety of dippable delights, or a breakfast basket for mornings with a treat.
