Father’s Day is a holiday where we can spoil our father figures with the things they enjoy, and a few things they never thought of trying. Sometimes, it’s a little tricky to come up with things that they might like. Questions like “what does he really need?” or “does he have this?” begin to swirl in your mind. Fear not! We have a little list to get your gift ideas in motion. Instead of one thing, maybe get a wonderful assortment of goodies and create the ultimate summer gift basket for dad to enjoy. Below is a guide featuring a selection of items you can find at your local Farm Boy along with some awesome products from our friends over at BBQing.com.
Flavour: Sweet, savoury, and slightly sour.
Use: This is the ultimate flavour booster! Use it in virtually any recipe to increase the overall umami of a dish. Can be used in place of or with garlic cloves to impart a slight sweetness. Try it as part of a marinade for grilled meats, in a stir-fry, and in finishing oils.
Flavour: Refreshing and pungent thanks to ingredients like cilantro, lemon, and garlic. Herbaceous with a slight kick of chili.
Use: Traditionally used as a steak sauce (like with our Beef Tenderloin), try it with our Chef-Prepped Chimichurri Flattened Chicken or roasted potatoes! It’s also delicious as a marinade to tenderize beef.
Flavour: Light, savoury, and sweet. An umami booster with soy sauce and nutty sesame flavour.
Use: If you’ve ever been to a hibachi grill where the chefs cook table-side, this is the flavour you’re tasting! This Japanese sauce, is a grilling staple that brings out the natural flavours of your ingredients and takes them to a whole new level. Use it in a vegetable stir-fry for an excellent side.
Flavour: Salty, black pepper, and garlic aroma.
Use: Extremely versatile seasoning that does not need to be reserved solely for steak. Try with roasted veggies, grilled proteins, and in stir-fries.
Ever get hungry while you’re cooking over the grill? Our pork spiedini are a great snacker for dad while he’s manning the “Q” this summer! It’s an easy handheld appetiser that’s rich, buttery, and succulent. Trust us, he’ll definitely appreciate it.
Our burgers are hand-formed and made in our kitchens daily! We meticulously care for each creation to ensure the best quality and taste. For example, the onions in our Caramelized Onion Swiss burger are slowly cooked for hours to develop a deep, sweet flavour profile.

These are cooked in coconut oil to provide a light and buttery flavour to a crunchy pita chip. Try them with our fresh salsas, hummus, or tabouleh! Available in Sea Salt and Herb & Garlic.

Use: Finding the right tongs for the job is a tricky task. Our top pick is just the right length to keep your hands cool and your food secured when being picked up!
