Now that Mother’s Day is a happy memory for 2016, it’s time to focus on the other most important person in your life – dad. After all he’s done to help shape you into the amazing person you’ve become, it’s time to celebrate him – and spoil him a little!
As everyone knows, the way to dad’s heart is through his stomach. Show him you care with a menu that reflects his manly palette.
Here’s the special menu Catering by Michaels will be serving up this Father’s Day!
Sour Cherry Old Fashioned
Whiskey, cherry liqueur, cherry syrup, sour cherry garnish.
Chipotle BBQ Shrimp Skewers wrapped in Bacon
Seared tenderloin, truffle aïoli, caramelized onions, brioche bun.
Beer & Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese
Cavatappi noodles, beer & cheddar cheese sauce, panko bread crumbs, parmesan cheese.
Candy Bar Parfaits
Chocolate cremeux, salted peanut caramel, fresh whipped cream, chocolate shavings.
Prepare to be refreshed. Our sour cherry old fashioned is a fresh, summery twist on an old favorite. Dad will love it, and we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy it, too. If only all cocktails had this much attention to detail.
Try a new take on the burger. You might describe our tenderloin slider as “adorable” but we’re pretty sure that dad will just be thinking about how many he can eat before dessert. See if you can keep up!
Nothing beats macaroni and cheese, so make sure to save at least a little bit of room for our beer & cheddar mac & cheese side. We promise it’s worth your stomach space, and the beer flavor gives it a little something extra (and ups it’s manly quotient for dad).
If we could pick a favorite course, it would probably be this dessert. No matter how much you’ve already eaten, we’re pretty sure you can handle one or two (or more!) of these candy bar parfaits. They’re almost too easy to put down.
Finally, let’s take a look at what dad and the rest of the family will be snacking on before the rest of the food comes out: our chipotle BBQ shrimp, wrapped in bacon.
Nothing beats the perfect surf and turf combo, and this appetizer is it. We’re so excited about it that we decided to share the recipe so you can create it yourself – and enjoy it whenever you want!
