Gourmet Treats For Dad This Father's Day

Father's Day is just a few days away and it's the perfect time to spoil any dad in your. At La Buona Tavola - Truffle Cafe, we have loads of treats perfect for dad - whether he's a die-hard foodie or just a guy that loves to eat and appreciates great food!

Here are a few of our top suggestions for your Father's Day shopping:

  • Black Truffle Sauce (Tartufella) - Use as a ready to serve pasta sauce, or 1 tablespoon to baste turkey or chicken, add to your omelet, or simply on bread.
  • Strawberry Preserves with Balsamic Vinegar - The taste is exceptional, combining the sweetness of the fruit with the bitter-sweet savor of our Balsamic Vinegar.
  • Moroccan Mustard - All-natural Moroccan Spices and organic Dijon mustard have been blended to create a flavor frenzy in a jar.
  • White Truffle Honey - Aromatic honey, infused with White Truffles - a product that you’ll be willing to lick off the counter, should it spill while you’re drizzling it over cheese, fresh fruit...or your finger.
  • Mo's Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar - ABSOLUTELY delicious, deep, milk chocolate, 41% cacao Chocolate with Applewood Smoked Bacon and Alderwood smoked salt.

Here's hoping your Father's Day is a tasty one!
