Over the next few days we’ll be featuring one dish a day from Rudi Sodamin’s “Father’s Day” menu so you can make a delicious four-course meal for dad this Sunday. Enjoy!
The Father’s Day menu celebrates the joyful dynamics of coming together in a different context. The meal pairs some sophisticated ingredients, like lobster, with a homey presentation–in a macaroni-and-cheese bake. You’ll also find the caramelized goodness of grilled pineapple paired up with the tropical flavors of mango whipped cream and a lime-butter sauce.
Because I was putting this menu together in honor of fathers, I also had some fun playing with the cliched notions of “guy food.” I incorporated ingredients that would probably be at the top of the list of ingredients that are popular among dads of all ages. Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce flavor the soup and give it some extra kick. The onion sauce in the Lobster Macaroni and Cheese gives a no-fuss, familiar feel to this upscale take on a favorite dish. This is a fun menu that is packed with delicious flavor. — Rudi Sodamin
Traditionally, this salad also includes slices of steamed potato, which makes it filling enough for a luncheon. I’ve left them out here so it can be enjoyed as a light salad appetizer.
