Your old (or young) man deserves to be spoiled every once in a while and as Father's day is fast approaching we've come up with some fun, inventive ways to celebrate. So if ideas are running dry, here's a few last minute tricks to put a smile on your Dad’s face this weekend.
Breakfast of Kings
Surprise your Dad and go all out with a classic full English breakfast. Bacon, sausage, eggs, beans, mushrooms and maybe even some black pudding!? We highly recommend our butchers Flock and Herd, located in Peckham. Delicious, well reared and high quality meat, worth a try if you're a local. When it comes to the sauces, mix it up with some Rubies in the Rubble condiments. Nothing beats your sausage dunked in their delicious chipotle mayo or for the braver of you, the banana ketchup. If you’ve read any of our previous newsletters you’ll already know, but Rubies in the Rubble aim to reduce food waste by using unwanted fruit and veg that would otherwise be sent to landfill. So you can treat your Dad, yourself and the environment all at once!
Or if you're feeling a little lazy, we've got you covered! We have a range of breakfast pots and fresh juices that can be delivered straight to your door so you can also enjoy a lovely lazy Father’s day morning.
Make the most of the gorgeous weather with a lazy Sunday afternoon BBQ. If you're lost for ideas we recommend Rich Harris’ “Fire and Smoke” cookbook. The book itself is a great Father's Day gift. It’s filled with 120 mouth-watering recipes including all the classics - beef short ribs, dry rubbed fillet and sticky pork belly along side exciting salads and dips to take your Father's Day BBQ to the next level.
Enjoy a well deserved drink with your BBQ with our unique Father’s day drink. We’ve teamed up with The English Drinks Co. Cucumber Gin to give you the ultimate [summer cocktail “Gin Cooler”]. Combining our citrus cooler juice with cucumber gin gives you a fresh zingy cocktail that’s perfect treat your Dad this Sunday.
