Father's Day Dinner Gift - Americana All The Way

Posted: May 27, 2008
by: T.Alexander

In the early days of GourmetStation it seemed that most of our dinner gifts were sent to the ladies of the household…especially on special occasions like Mother’s Day. After all, the ladies of the house have cooked for many of us for many years. Then one day someone suggested that GourmetStation needed more “guy food.” In concept “guy food” seemed like a good idea, but how to make meat and potatoes gourmet was the big challenge.

2007 was a year filled with new product development…a whole new menu line was designed for….well, “guys.” Since other GourmetStation menus center around exotic regions known for their cuisine, we decided to develop the new menu around authentic American cuisine. The first attempt was Father’s Day 2007 - our Americana 4 course dinner gift for two and it was an immediate success. We selected New England clam chowder and rustic beef & mushroom soup for starters. While the Big Sky Beef Ribs and Glazed Pork Chops are the most popular entrees, many of our new male gift recipients ventured to try Pecan Encrusted Trout and Manchester Quail.

So how do we top the success of the Father’s Day 2007 Americana menu? With an all new Father’s Day 2008 Americana Menu – 3 delicious courses featuring 4 new entrees, a new dessert and free shipping. Chef’s pick for this delicious menu is below. If you have one of those Dad’s who has it all and you’re seeking a unique experience, give Dad dinners from field, sky & steam – true Americana fare.

Dads always love to BBQ. One dish that's excellent is a Dijon Crusted Chicken Wings. The sauce should contain Worcestershire sauce, tarragon, fresh lemon juice and a Himalayan sea salt.

I love this menu. My dad would totally love it. The only thing I would add is a after dinner plate of Elsylee's cookies (www.elsylee.com). We ALL love them in my family. They are the best and that is a complete perfect menu!!!!!!!
