To ensure that Dad never misses a sip, the Thermador Double Drawer Refrigerator from the all-new Freedom® Under Counter Refrigeration Collection sees to it that Dad never has to worry about running out of his favorite drink – no matter what room of the home he wants to relax in to enjoy his special day.

If Dad is more of the wine-loving type, a scrumptious spaghetti may be just the dish he desires. The ultimate companion to a perfectly aged vintage, a classic Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes, Olives and Capers will win you big points. Red pepper flakes, Kalamata olives, capers and pine nuts are just some of the standout flavors that combine to create this delightful dish. And making sure his favorite wine pairing is easily accessible, the Thermador Under Counter Glass Door Wine Reserve will keep every bottle at the perfect temperature – whether he opts for a Chardonnay, Pinot, or a robust red.

To top off the special day, treat Dad to a decadent dessert. While an assortment of sweets pair wonderfully with wine and beer, one of my favorite recipes is a Flourless Chocolate Cake. The perfect match for a glass of Merlot or a chocolatey Guinness, this delectable dessert will be Dad’s favorite gift of the day.
