Foodie gift ideas for Father’s Day 2022

People’s Captain Latte Latte Love set

People’s Captain is a beer company whose mission is to encourage men to talk more about their feelings (it was over a pint of beer that the founder managed to open up about his mental health). The brand has joined forces with two other impressive companies, Easy Jose Coffee & Tony’s Chocoloney, to create their beer, coffee and chocolate gift set. Inside the box is a bottle of the coffee chocolate stout, a bar of Tony’s Chocoloney, a bag of Easy Jose groud coffee, and a glass. We love the thoughtful combination of gifts and think it makes a stellar Father’s Day gift. Available from People’s Captain (£26).

Ross & Ross BBQ kits

Yes, we know it’s a little cliché but let’s be honest, dads do love to barbecue! And this mega set of condiments and spice rubs from Ross & Ross is a really great way to enhance the natural flavours of meats and fish on the barbie. A special shout-out is due for their award-winning BBQ Salt, which works on a variety of meats or even side dishes, such a potatoes, and adds a subtle smokiness to dishes. Available from Ross & Ross Gifts (£45).

For the sweet-toothed fathers, these cocoa dusted caramelised pecans from luxury chocolatiers Farhi are a work of art.

Smokin’ Brothers salmon

The salmon smoked by Cotswold’s based Smokin’ Brothers is sourced from the last family-owned salmon farm in Scotland, which has strict standards, and is an organic certified farm. The fish is filleted, cured for a minimum of 10 hours, and then smoked. The sides of salmon are then sliced using a sashimi slice, and prepared as belly or tail cuts. Sliced thicker than your usual cut, your Dad will be able to get the most from the extremely supple and buttery texture of the clean and rich flavoured fish. Available from Smokin’ Brothers from £29.80.

Colston Bassett cheeses

The king of blue cheese, Colston Bassett Stilton has a worldclass reputation and its tangy, sharpness is complimented by a buttery smooth texture which is almost spreadable. Its brother, Shropshire Blue is an easy eating option, with a sweet creamy flavour with no bitterness. Gift the cheese with some crackers and a bottle of something to drink, and you have an ideal cheese gift for your Dad that won’t break the bank. Available from Neal’s Yard Dairy (from £9.45 plus delivery).


Ooni Koda pizza oven

For a big ticket item, you can’t get much better than a pizza oven… Probably the best-known of the at-home pizza oven brands, Ooni co-founders husband-and-wife team Kristian Tapaninaho and Darina Garland were the first to launch a portable wood-pellet-fired pizza oven in 2012. The Ooni Koda is the gas-fired version of the entry-level family pizza oven and is designed to make pizzas up to 13 inches (also available is the Ooni Koda 16 that knocks out super-sized pizzas up to 16 inches). Available from Ooni (£299).

Comes with a recipe booklet and starter guide covering which chips complement what food. Available from Hot Smoked (£30 plus £3.95 delivery).

Rockfish tinned fish selection pack

Fish in tins is all the rage, but the posh stuff with pretty pictures on doesn’t have to come all the way from Spain.

Toss the ‘Brixham calamari’ (cuttlefish in ink sauce) with pasta and a squeeze of lemon; the Lyme Bay mussels escabeche makes a moreish snack with crusty bread.
