Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Dads Who Love to Cook

Father's Day Gift Ideas for Men Who Love to Cook

Father’s Day is coming up and we have some gift ideas for the dad who loves to cook. We’re not talking pancakes-on-a-Saturday-morning-dad, but hey, shout out to you guys, too! No, we put together a list of the best gifts for your Culinary Enthusiast Dad. You know the type. They pour over grill guides, have their own “secret seasoning,” and will likely lecture you on the pronounced difference in flavor with oak and hickory wood chips.

If any of the above describes the dad in your life, read on. There are various types of culinary enthusiasts so we compiled a few lists that meet the needs of each one.

Father’s Day Gifts for the Dad Who Loves to Cook

The BBQ Fanatic

Father's Day gifts for the BBQ Fanatic

Most, if not all of us, have a BBQ fanatic in our life. BBQ enthusiasts are some of the best types of people. Know why? They are always perfecting their craft and they make some of the yummiest food on the planet. BBQ fanatics are also extremely generous and thrive on inviting people to share meals with them. See? The BEST type of person.

Chances are, your BBQ dad already has some tools of his own. However, when it comes to tools, more is better! Treat your guy to this all-inclusive BBQ Briefcase. Every BBQ tool he could ever need is in here.

Sixteen different BBQ tools and a stainless steel carrying case make this a great gift. Because you know he’ll take it with him.

For the man who wants to be perfectly precise with his BBQ game the Wireless BBQ Meat Thermometer is an absolute must.


This thermometer has 15 preset temperatures for beef, veal, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, deer, elk, moose, buffalo, rabbit, boar, duck, bird & fish. Yep, he can pretty much grill anything with these babies. Additionally, the thermometer set comes with a pair of Bear Paw Meat Handler Forks to shred and carve meat. What man doesn’t want to shred his meat with equipment aptly named “Bear Paws”?

Finally, if you have an accident-prone dad in your life *cough* consider giving him the gift of safety.

The TTLIFE BBQ Grilling Cooking Gloves claim to withstand temperatures up to 932°F. Yeah, that’s some serious heat. Not only do they protect your hands, but they also are long enough for forearm protection. Best part? They are machine washable. I’m definitely giving my husband these this year. 

The Pizza Aficionado

Father's Day gifts for the pizza lover!

Pizza happens to be one of my husband’s favorite things to make. It’s actually the food that ignited his love of cooking because it is always a challenge, and there are so many different ways to make pizza! I’m not complaining one bit. Pizza is always welcome in this house.

One of the items on my husband’s wish list is this Pizza Peel.

Pizza peels are awesome because you can place the pizza farther back into the oven, and effortlessly transfer it without ruining the delicate structure. Yes, when talking about pizza we use terms like “delicate” and “structure.” Pizza is serious business, folks. I like this pizza peel because it helps keep the cook’s hands safe from burns and he’ll feel like a real “pro” using it.

Another great gift is a pizza stone. Chances are, if he’s into making pizza he probably already has a round pizza stone, but check out this rectangular one !

Made from the same material that is used in brick pizza ovens, this pizza stone absorbs your oven’s heat and distributes it evenly throughout the pizza dough. The rectangular shape is nice because it lends more workspace than the traditional round pizza stones. Just make sure your oven is big enough to accommodate it!

Feel like being a bit controversial this Father’s Day? There is a heated (pun intended) and active debate amongst pizza gurus on which is better: pizza stones or cast iron pans. Why not let him decide for himself? This Cast Iron Pizza Pan promises to deliver the “preferred flavor of the Old World.” That’s some serious hype.

The Foodie

Father's Day gifts for the Foodie Dad

A fun, delicious, and curious facet of today’s society describe themselves as “foodies.” Basically, a “foodie” is someone who is obsessed with detecting the various nuances and flavors of food. They get excited about how old their cheese is, where their olive oil came from, and will, without warning, burst into lectures about brining. Foodies are dangerous people to be friends with as they will introduce you to delicious food that is either too expensive or impossible to replicate. Beware of the foodie.

However, if you happen to have a foodie dad in your life then count yourself lucky–you probably eat very well. One of the best gifts to give a foodie is the gift of undiscovered foods. Mimi Sheraton’s 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die: A Food Lover’s Life List is the ultimate exploration of foods around the world. Get ready: your foodie will be on the hunt after reading this one!

A top five love for any foodie is truffle oil. Or truffle salt. Or just plain truffles. What are truffles, you ask? A truffle is actually an extremely rare fungus that is used as a delicacy in culinary arts. Truffles are very expensive and average at about $2500 per pound. Because they are so rare and expensive, the best way for average folk to enjoy them is in the form of truffle oil or salt.

This set comes with both black and white truffle infused oil. A little goes a long way! Your foodie will enjoy experimenting with the oil in pastas, meats, and vegetables.

Another fun gift for your foodie is this Himalayan Salt BBQ Plank.

Food can be prepared on it hot or cold, and it holds the temperature well. The intriguing aspect of cooking on a salt plank is that the mineral content adds a subtle nuance to the food’s flavor. It’s also a great focal point for any table spread and is sure to be a piece your foodie talks about {wink}.

Whatever category your food-enthusiast-dad falls into, we hope you have a fabulous Father’s Day celebrating him! Cheers!
