Menu Suggestion #1
This is the portable Father's Day menu! If you are going to be spending the day at the beach, the lake or the pool, why don't you make the recently published Pulled Pork Sandwich recipe with Cole Slaw. You can also bring along some Gazpacho in the cooler and some Outrageous Chocolate Brownies for dessert.
Menu Suggestion #2
If you have a group of dads coming to your house, why don't you make what the Argentinians call an Asado and serve Skirt on the Grill with Saffron Rice, Tomatoes Provencal and a yummy chocolate dessert. You can start with grilled sausages , preferably Argentian from El Gaucho, served with mustard and chimichurri sauce on a baguette. A nice Malbec or Cabernet Sauvignion from Argentinian producer Luigi Bosca would complement the meal very nicely.
As to what to get Dad for a present, that is for you to answer. If he were my Dad, a big hug and a great bottle of wine, I think, would do the trick!

Father's Day on the Boat!
Father's Day Barbecue
Luigi Bosca Malbec or Cabernet Sauvignon
If it is a hot day or you are entertaining in the middle of the day, why not serve Tinto de Verano for cocktails? Your wine supply will go a long way.
Luigi Bosca's second wine, La Linda, is excellent. You can use it for the tinto de verano or serve with the main course as a less expensive alternative.
Cook's Note: *If you cant find Mojo Criollo, marinade with orange juice, lime juice, garlic and Worcestershire Sauce
