Food-Focused Gifts Dad Will Love Slideshow
June 10, 2013
We've unearthed stellar edibles sure to please the discriminating dad. Let the cravings (and online shopping) begin...
Raising the Bar
Let Dad kick back with a box of fine chocolates that match up to an equally fine whiskey or bourbon. A nine-piece set of chocolates flavored with fleur de sel caramel, Kona coffee, and honeycomb malt come in a handsome box and include pairing notes.
To buy: Whiskey pairing collection, $26 from Recchiuti.com
Fingers in Pies
Give Dad variety: If it's pie he craves, give him not one, but four. These handmade, miniature pies come in nine flavor options, including Dutch apple, blueberry, Michigan four berry, and cherry.
To buy: Mini pie sampler, $39.95 from AchatzPies.com
A Sweet Mix
A slice of heaven? Nah, give dad the whole pie — Franken Pie, that is, from New York City's famous Momofuku Milk Bar. It's an assemblage of the restaurant's beloved Crack Pie (a gooey butter filling and a toasted oat topping), Candy Bar Pie (chocolate crust, caramel, peanut butter nougat, and pretzels) and Dream Girl Pie (a gluten-free, dairy-free coconut milk and dark chocolate confection with granola crust). Swoon.
To buy: Franken Pie, $44 from ShopMilkBar.com
Let Him Eat Cake
Chocolate cake is always a winner, but Red Truck Bakery takes it to the next level, adding a tinge of pure Virginia moonshine to its rich chocolate ring cake, then topping it off with a drizzle of chocolate glaze.
To buy: Double-chocolate moonshine cake, $22 from RedTruckBakery.com
Here's a sweet snack with pedigree: brittle that contains cacao nibs that have been aged in the barrels of fine bourbons — which imbues the confection with the characteristic oak and fruit notes of a classic bourbon.
To buy: Bourbon nib brittle, $12.99 from OliveAndSinclair.com
