Father’s Day gifts for the foodie dad

Written by Tim Barnes-Clay

For fathers who enjoy cooking up some magic in the kitchen, we’ve got just the gifts for you.

Maybe you’re a genius in the kitchen or perhaps you just love good food. Either way, check out these six Father’s Day culinary-inspired ideas.

Microplane Premium Classic Zester

Microplane Premium Classic Zester, £19.95

A zester is an essential kitchen tool. But you don’t want to waste time battling with an old, shoddy zester that just won’t do the trick anymore. With Microplane’s Premium Classic Zester, you can zest with ease. The stainless steel “teeth” in this zester can easily cut without any excess tearing or shredding. Dads will shave time off cooking as it can be used for grafting everything from nutmeg, ginger, garlic, citrus fruits and even cheese. Another great perk about this tool is that it’s dishwasher safe.


Tracklements Perfect Pickles gift box

Tracklements Perfect Pickles gift box, £8.60

Pickles are the perfect accessory to burgers, sandwiches or just a snack on the side. With Tracklements Perfect Pickles gift box dads will have their tastiest treat yet. This set includes one Perfect Ploughman’s Pickle which has the right amount of sweet tang paired with the toothsome crunch pickle lovers crave. Paired with this, is the more traditional Particularly British Piccallilli. This mustard pickle packs quite a punch of sharpness and crunch and is great with cheddar, cold meats and crusty pork pies.
