The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – we’re sure it’s the same for Dad
Dads usually contribute to the family in little-seen ways, such as working hard to support the family, fixing things or buying things we need. Why not show him your appreciation with a good meal to thank him this Father’s Day?
Compared to moms, dads tend to prefer the savoury to the sweet. So how about a savoury ‘cake’ rather than the typical sweet ones? Antoinette’s Nordic Cake for Father’s Day is essentially a light rye bread sandwich pieced together with olive oil, tomato marmalade and Pommery mustard.
The first layer is a blend of tomato marmalade with cream cheese mascarpone and smoked salmon, the second layer is filled with juicy chunks of prawn cocktails while the third layer features egg mayonnaise with tomato marmalade that oozes incredible umami appeal.

Available only in June, you can get a special six-course Japanese Wagyu Set Dinner together with a complimentary glass of whiskey or champagne. Bringing together a medley of Fat Cow’s popular dishes, this is one menu you can’t resist.
Start off with Madako Ceviche with Renkon Chip (cured octopus with sweet lotus chips) and Dried Seaweed and the Aburi Sashimi Assortment that features fresh Otoro, Hokkaido Scallop alongside other seafood.
Next, the main course has Pan-Seared Foie Gras with Wagyu and Ni Daikon, a rich creamy Foie Gras and radish paired with Japanese Wagyu rib meat simmered in sweet ginger soy with fresh yuzu. Nonetheless, the A3 Tajima Gyu Sumibiyaki, served with Kizami Wasabi, Yuzu Kosho (chilli pepper paste) and Japanese Kabosu Lime for that added punch on the palate, takes centre stage with the steak grilled to let its natural flavour ooze out.
