Take Over the Grill for Father’s Day – Grilling for Dad

Father’s day marks one of the busiest grilling days of the year. Often, we associate dads with the BBQ, and it’s no mistake. After such a long winter, make this Father’s Day one where dad doesn’t need to touch the grill. Give him all of his favourite flavours without him lifting a finger. If you need any advice on what to cook and how to cook it, you might want to check out somewhere like bearmountainbbq.com for some much-needed grilling advice. To do so, we turned to local West Village Roast Butcher Shop‘s head chef Matt Anderson who insists that nothing says “I love you, dad” more than a premium grade cut of dry-aged, bone-in rib eye steak cooked to perfection on the BBQ. With the right steak, the only thing we needed was a great recipe and some side dish ideas and luckily, Corin Frampton, Head Butcher at Roast and lucky for us has generously donated his personal Father’s Day recipes for all to enjoy.
