A Father’s Day Feast
Once he’s unwrapped something amazing from WFN’s Father’s Day Gift Guide, it’s time to eat. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite recipes for Father’s Day featuring Dad’s favorite food, and a few other supporting players (like bacon).
Appetizer: Bacon Wrapped Kokonee
To start, bacon up some kokanee with this easy recipe from WFN Ambassador Rick Clark. Sure, you can add a salad. Or some vegetables. Isn’t bacon a vegetable?

Main Course: Lobster Spaghetti
If you’re feeling ambitious, try this lobster spaghetti. It’s actually not as tricky as it looks, and the addition of serrano, poblano or jalapeno peppers complements the rich taste of lobster.

Even easier main: Fish ‘n Chips
Or keep things dead easy with fish ‘n chips. Try substituting your favourite white beer or pilsner if Leinenkugels isn’t available in your area. Chicken broth makes a good substitute for the beer, too.
