5 Sweet Father’s Day Gifts for the Foodie Father

If there’s nothing like Dad’s challah French toast or grilled pizza, help stock his pantry this Father’s Day. The foodie father may already have an armory of sauces and marinades, but there’s always room on the shelf to enhance the collection. That’s where maple makes its entrance.

Maple isn’t just for adding a sweet finishing touch. Think of cooking with maple as baking with vanilla extract. It can be mixed or whisked into an array of recipes to accentuate the overall flavor. Bread doughs, marinades, sauces and stews can all benefit from the pure, robust taste of maple. Be it syrup or sugar he uses, the pure and natural sweetener brings new essence to archived family-favorite recipes.

We don’t think that it’s dad’s cooking thats needs help. We just believe that his culinary skills could soar with help from the flavor enhancing wonders from Vermont maple syrup. Get him started with a few gifts below!

Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup

This maple syrup, aged in bourbon barrels, isn’t just for Saturday mornings. Elevating the caramel notes of Grade A maple syrup, this syrup can make any ordinary cocktail a signature cocktail with its sophisticated characteristics. Spruce up roasted vegetables with a tablespoon or two, or swirl it into bacon scone batter.

Grade A Dark, Robust

Formerly known as Grade B, Grade A Dark, Robust is a chef’s right-hand ingredient. Its robust profile allows its flavor to come through in whatever is being flipped on the grill or baked in the oven. Let dad give it a try with a 12oz glass bottle or keep him stocked with a quart.

Our Sweet Maple Mustard, Tangy Honey Mustard and Maple Horseradish Mustard all add lip smacking intrigue to any bite. You have our permission to dub these mustards the “secret sauce” on your sandwiches.

Maple Barbecue Sauce

Make the dinner decision easy by presenting dad with a Maple Barbecue Sauce. Balancing tang with sweetness, this sauce jolts the tastebuds to attention, keeping you crave bite after bite. Ribs straight from the smoker or pulled pork tacos shine under a blanket of this barbecue sauce.

Vermont Organic Maple Sugar

Maple sugar is a revelation in the kitchen. It’s natural and pure origins keep cooking real and delicious. Not only does maple sugar sweeten dishes, it adds subtle flavor that’ll make dad’s creations even more interesting. For recipes that call for granulated sugar, swap it with maple sugar on a 1:1 ratio. This works seamlessly in homemade marinades, handcrafted pastries, and wherever a sprinkle of sugar would pull a dish together.

With help from maple, dad’s kitchen will be on its way to a Michelin star.
