Fathers Day is on 17 June 2018, and it’s time to begin that annual search for that perfect gift to tell Dad how much he means to you. There are plenty of dads out there with far too many novelty ties and ‘World’s Best Dad’ mugs – why not give Dad something special this year? We’ve got the Father’s Day gifts that dad really wants.
Ross and Ross have a carefully chosen selection of gifts that Dad would love to open this year.
Dads can’t be expected to survive the weekend without a decent breakfast, and life is far too short for a bad bacon sandwich. Bearing this in mind, we’ve put together the ultimate gift package to make Dad’s mouth water – The Ultimate Bacon Sandwich Kit.
Your dad is only seven days away from the finest bacon sandwich that he’s ever tasted. A great bacon sandwich starts with great bacon, and you’re unlikely to find that in the fridge of your local supermarket. Frustrated with the watery, processed rashers on offer, we created our unique curing blends to allow you to cure your own bacon at home. All of the equipment that you need is included within the kit:
The only thing that we haven’t been able to include in our kit is the pork – but you could pick out a lovely piece to ensure that Dad can use his Father’s Day gifts straight away. Great bacon starts with great pork belly. Visit your local butcher and they should be able to point you in the right direction of a nice piece of rindless meat with enough fat to give a good sizzle. You can also make back bacon with our kits. Each cure is enough for roughly 500g of pork.
We only use the best pork for the catering arm of our business – here are some of our favourite butchers:
Bacon might be the most important part, but we’ve thrown in our favourite condiments to top off the ultimate bacon sandwich. If Dad likes it a bit spicy, we suggest a dollop of La Barbacoa by Pip’s Hot Sauce – smoking BBQ sauce with a touch of hellfire. For a milder tangy hit, we’ve also included the Foraging Fox’s Beetroot Ketchup, which is sure to become a family favourite.
Not feeling saucy? You can also purchase our original bacon home curing kit, containing everything Dad needs to create his own porcine breakfast masterpiece.
You know he’s the world’s best dad – why not tell him with the World’s Best Dad Man Box? We’ve put together some of our favourite Cotswold tastes in one box, especially for dad this Father’s Day. We’ve worked with some of the Cotswolds’ best small, artisan producers to bring you this hamper packed full of some of their finest fare. Each box contains salami from The Cotswold Curer, Mr Trotter’s Original Great British Crackling, a jar of Ross & Ross Food’s Smoked Apple Chutney and a bottle of Premium Cotswold Lager.
Looking for a bigger box? We’ve supercharged our standard Man Box this Father’s Day to create the Best Dad Ever XL Man Box. We’ve packed in even more of our favourite products from our local producers. As well as The Cotswold Curer’s French-style saucisson, we’ve included their fiery spicy chorizo as well. The Cotswold Brewing Company’s Premium Cotswold Lager is joined by the The Cotswold Pig, a rich, dark golden ale. We’ve included both our smoked apple and our plum chutney and thrown in an extra bag of spicy jalapeno chilli pork crackling from Mr Trotter’s. There’s plenty here to share… but as it’s Dad’s special day, we’ll wait for him to offer.
We’ve had a glimpse of the sunshine and we’re definitely ready for BBQ season. Make sure Dad has everything he needs with the BBQ Man Box from our Father’s Day gifts range. No more boring burgers or bangers this year! The kit contains our favourite dips and seasonings for an al fresco meal to remember.
Use the specially designed and extensively taste-tested blended rubs to pimp up any piece of plain chicken, fish, or pork, then break into the sauces. Spicy BBQ sauce or mild hot sauce or both, add a tickle of heat and buckets of flavour to serve up a devastatingly delicious meaty feast. We’ve included everything but the sunshine – sorry about that!
