6 Ways Into Your Father's Heart

Show your love for dad in the kitchen this Father's Day

Pulled Pork Sliders

How do you show your appreciation on Father’s Day? Without the easy trip to the florist for a bouquet of flowers like we do on our mother’s national holiday, many of us are lead to scramble for gift ideas that include everything from dapper ties, nifty wine bottle openers and, of course, a good old fashioned cigar.

While these gifts will surely put a twinkle in your father's eye, what about sharing the love in the kitchen this Father's Day? Just as the old saying goes…the easiest way into a man’s heart is through is stomach, and gathering the family in the kitchen for a mouthwatering meal for dad is no exception. Whether you’re looking to wine and dine him with elegant lobster or simply please his manly taste buds with a hearty pulled pork sandwich, The Daily Meal has something for you to try. No matter how you cut it, your time and commitment to these recipes will certainly make a splash this Father’s Day.
