ENTERTAINING

Dad's Dishes
By Annette M. Rose-Shapiro

THIS FATHER'S DAY, THE MAN OF THE HOUSE IS MORE THAN A GRILL MASTER

Dads want to be in the kitchen too, so Sugar & Olives in Norwalk has a special class just for them. Participants in "Calling All Dads" get to sip wine and sample tasty appetizers while learning to make rosemary flatbread and fava bean hummus, plain and chocolate empanadas with beef, chicken or veggie fillings, mâche salad with lime vinaigrette and a dessert. They'll leave with recipes in hand, too. If you're looking for a Father's Day gift for the chef, consider a set of All-Clad cookware, a few knives from Wüsthof or a bottle of St-Germain, which makes a perfect summer cocktail.

"The St-Germain Cocktail should be your go-to cocktail this summer—it's light, refreshing and has an alluring flavor."
Robert Cooper, creator of St-Germain and president of the Cooper Spirits Company

"When you participate in the kitchen and explore food, you get comfortable and entertaining becomes hip and attainable. At Sugar & Olives, we're putting the fellas to work and teaching them another way to bring home the dough!"
— Jennifer Balin, head chef/proprietor,
