Father’s Day is a great time of year to show your Dad how much you love him, and knowing what he loves, like cooking, is a great place to start. If your Dad loves cooking, consider a few of the following ideas for inspiration as to what to get for your father.
When thinking about what to get your Dad, consider his favorite dishes and what sort of things he loves to make. The father who loves baking or making creative desserts is going to want different types of things than the father who loves making savory dishes. Gifts for a cook will typically fall into one of three categories: recipe books, cooking ingredients, or cookware such as pots and pans.
Books of recipes are an easy go-to for a gift for your Dad. A cookbook will provide hours worth of cooking entertainment and fun for your father, and hopefully he’ll be able to pick out a few new favorites! Consider buying an ethnic cookbook, as he is less likely to already have one, and the recipes are generally more interesting and flavorful than your regular dinner book. If he loves sweets, pick out a book of great dessert recipes. Always check reviews online before you buy, as cookbooks can be hit-or-miss.
Cooking supplies make great gifts as well. If your Dad loves Asian cuisine, buy him a wok. A huge variety of things can be made in a wok, and it will be a great addition to his arsenal of cookware if he does not yet have one. A Crock-pot, new non-stick frying pan, new saucepans, a nice grill pan, or a pressure cooker are just a few of the myriad of options available. A fondue pot could be an interesting gift as well. Good quality cookware is a must for a cooking enthusiast, and will be useful for years to come.
