Dads + Steaks

This Sunday we’re honoring the men in our lives. For Chef Donald Link, Father’s Day is definitely grilling day: “It’s the one day you want to grill steaks,” he says. “Thick, big, ‘more-than-you-should-eat’-steaks.” Like a one pound rib eye. Link adds, smiling: “ …and you’re snacking on sausages while you wait for the steaks to be done.” Chef Links actually doesn’t mind doing all the grilling, even on Father’s day. “As long as someone else is cleaning up. That’s the deal!” he says.

Father’s day is about spending time with the family, with friends. It’s not about stressing over an elaborated meal. “Keep it simple”, says Chef Link. He suggests to simply grill some Zucchini and Squash along with the steaks, roast ores of corn in the husk. “Have your kids make a cucumber and tomato salad with fresh basil.” Add a fresh bread, like a crusty baguette to the spread, open a bottle of cool, light red wine, like a Rhone, a Burgundy or a Rosé and enjoy.

To all the Dads, Step-Dads and Grandpas: Happy Father’s Day!
