My favorite memories of my dad are the ones we spent enjoying a meal at the kitchen table or a restaurant. When I would visit my hometown in New Jersey from Delaware, we’d bond over food—or, more specifically, a bowl of black olives or breadsticks wrapped in prosciutto. It was our special time to catch up. And we both agreed that anything is better with a good cocktail and delicious dinner!
I attribute my business and my culinary success to my dad. He certainly cultivated my love of food. He taught me how to order steak, “as rare as the chef will let it go!” He even showed me how to truly appreciate the finer things in life, like a Tanqueray martini. To this day, I still utter his words after the first sip: “Ah, nectar of the gods!”
Not only was my dad a food connoisseur, he was also an entrepreneur. Because of him, I was able to turn my passion (and these cherished moments) into a career that lights me up day after day. The sheer joy that I get from sharing a meal is what motivated me to start About the Table. For this, and countless other reasons, I am forever grateful for my dad.
With Father’s Day right around the corner, I encourage you to treat your dad to something personal to create lasting memories. At About the Table, this time is extra meaningful, and we’d be honored to help you plan the perfect day for Dad.
