A full stomach of home-grilled food is probably one of the best gifts to give dad this Sunday, June 18th. So in honour of the man of the hour, your Vancouver real estate experts have been planning the ultimate bbq menu for Father’s Day. Because the kitchen — and the patio, in this case — is the heart of the home.
Sometimes, nothing beats a burger. We love this recipe from the chefs behind Calgary’s Charcut Roast House steakhouse and Alley Burger food truck for the mouth-watering The Whole Truck burger. For a spin on this all-American classic, try the Steak Frites Burger for a fry-patty combo, and the Whiskey Burger for the distinguished gentleman in your life.
Who says you have to give up the grill when you’re vegetarian? This Grilled Bread With Zucchini, Riccota, and Basil from RealSimple is finger-lickin’ good — no meat required.
No one quite does entertaining like Martha Stewart, and these classic side-dishes-with-a-twist will definitely please. Bacon and chives will make you think “baked potato”, but this Red Bliss Potato Salad with Blue Cheese, Bacon, and Chives is all summer while the Grilled Corn with Sour Cream and Cotija Cheese will compliment any barbeque.
Toast local with any number of liquids from Vancouver’s microbreweries and distilleries. From beloved Granville Island Brewing to the handcrafted, artisanal spirits at The Liberty Distillery on Granville Island; conveniently walkable from False Creek real estate (so you can walk off all those delicious calories…).
Finish off with Grilled-Peach Sundaes for a fun-for-the-whole-family barbeque feast.
