GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
He’ll also love that you took note of something he likes to do. Score: you gave him the perfect gift. The Frugalista Gift Guide lists a few cooking/foodie Father’s Day gifts that might fit the bill. Or, give you some ideas to find your own perfect selection.
Dad might be one to create meals from recipes or videos he finds on his iPad. He might even want to show off his prowess during a video chat. Gift him with a Williams-Sonoma Smart Tools iPad Screen Shield. Clear, anti-glare prevents his iPad from “oopsies”, which easily clean off.
The Williams-Sonoma Smart Tools Kitchen Stand for Tablets makes it even easier for Dad to use his computer tablet. It holds the tablet upright for better readability. In an attractive brushed metal finish; and allows for four different positions.
Cast iron has made a comeback in a big way. Cooks swear it prepares food better. Some professionals believe it healthier. Plus, it could be a great weapon against intruders. Would Dad put the Lodge Logic Cast Iron Set to good use? The oven safe set includes two skillets. Both with pouring lips a cook will love. You can also buy these 5 pieces separately.
True Food: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple, Pure would appeal to a Dad committed to eating healthier. Authored by Dr. Andrew Weil and Chef Sam Fox, True Food incorporates the duo’s restaurant’s mission: delicious food promoting the customer’s well-being.

Dad doesn’t have a professional knife? The Wusthof Gourmet Chef’s Knives might delight him. All knives crafted of precision stamped, high carbon stainless steel. In five lengths: 5” ($40 $65), 6” ($30 $75), 8” ($60 $85), 9” ($70 $90), 10” ($80 $115) Free shipping on orders over $49 Note: the 6″ and 10″ have the largest mark-downs/value

If Dad’s a novice cook, he might not realize he needs a good strainer. Gift him with the WMF’s Profi Plus Stainless Steel Strainer. For all the things he doesn’t know he’ll need to strain and sift.

Truffles add pizzazz to dishes and variety to the menu. The gift of Tris of Jars gives Dad a variety of truffle sauces to sample. 2-3 ounces each of white truffle fondue, truffle sauce and black truffle carpaccio.
Some believe that marinating is a cook’s best friend. The Artisanal Marinating “Solutions” Trio might make a great addition to Dad’s arsenal. Trio includes Artisanal BBQ Sauce, Balsamic Fig Marinade and Honey Ginger Marinade.
The ideas above, or in the grilling post, don’t seem quite right for cooking/foodie Dad?
Just think about the questions, and similar , above. You’ll have one happy Dad on June 16th.
