Food Files: Father’s Day Gift Ideas – Food Gift Idea at a Farmer’s Market

This morning, after taking an early walk on the aqueduct, I checked out the Farmer’s Market stalls that were set up on the grounds of our Main Street school. There were a great group of local farmers selling foods grown organically and locally. There were also some terrific additions to the mix; Lisa of Luxxchocolat; a chocolatier, Preston of Teagevity; a tea specialist, Pamela of TrueFood Kitchen; an organic food restaurateur, A rep from WaveHill Breads; an artisan micro-bakery, and many more specialty food folks. Walking through the displays of excellent food items got me thinking about how preparing and enjoying great food can be one of the best ways to celebrate a special occasion. We can purchase just the right amount/assortment of foods we love and prepare a memorable meal. We don’t always have to go to a 5 Star restaurant to do so. We can start by supporting our local food suppliers and make Father’s Day and other special days a true family affair.

A Chat w/ Lisa of Luxxchocolat

I love desserts and we can’t have a full course, celebratory meal without terrific desserts. Lisa Mecray Roger, Chocolatier Xtraordinaire of LuxxChocolat, and her table of divine chocolates caught my attention. Lisa is a certified graduate with honors of the acclaimed Ecole Chocolat Professional School of Chocolate Arts in Vancouver, British Columbia and the famous L’Ecole Du Grand Chocolat at Valrhona, Tain L’Hermitage, France. Her chocolates have won/continue to win local and international awards for the exquisite way they are crafted. She has been an award-winning medalist for Best Chocolatiers & Confectioners in America in 2013 and 2014, and this year will bring even more awards. I stopped and chatted with Lisa and she shared that Breakfast in Bed would be a perfect gift for Father’s Day. She also takes bookings for Chocolate and Wine tastings. This year, why don’t we do something truly special for the men in our lives? Let’s treat them to delectable, memorable meals and desserts that will make their hearts sing for years to come. Check out Lisa’s website , and connect with her on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter, and try some of her selections.

Gourmet foods are always a great way to send special gifts to friends and family and Father’s Day is no exception. If you like sauces, and I mean sauces for desserts and entree dishes,  you’d love the full range of what the Robert Rothschild Farm has to offer. Check out my delicious dish and I bet you’d love the sweet and spicy flavor of their Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Sauce. You can send a gift of the delectable gourmet sauces from their website and be rest assured that the quality and packaging will be top notch. So make no more excuses about what to give the man who has everything, and make excellent desserts and cuisine a top option this year.

As the popular proverb goes, “The way to a man’s heart is though his stomach.”  Try good food and build great memories for this and any other special occasion.
