Father’s Day is coming up – have you bought a gift yet? Will you?
Does your dad like concerts or ball games or golfing? Do you buy the usual tie or dress socks and call it a day?
Let’s do something better this year.
For my dad, there are 4 things I know he will love:
Coffee. Anything Virginia Tech related. Hockey game tickets or gear. Good food – a dinner out, gift certificate, or just sharing a meal together with the family when we’re together.
I didn’t get to make this meal for my dad, but….he would have been sweating, I’ll tell you that much. I think I underestimated just how hot these little Italian chillies were – Nick and I both finished the meal with burning lips and downed a couple glasses of water each.
Just a heads up – don’t use as many chillies as I did. They’re spicy! We LOVE spicy food, so it was fine for us, but I would definitely cut down a bit if you’re not a fan of super spicy pasta.
Nudo has a great gift set, perfect for Father’s Day if your dad likes spicy foods, pasta, or spicy pasta.
I fell in love with the Nudo Mandarin Orange olive oil last year (and am still hoarding the last few drizzles) and have now crossed over into the garlic oil obsession.
Did you know you can adopt your own olive tree with them? Awesome, right? Adopt a tree and you get the oil from your tree during the year, plus some of their other incredible flavored olive oils, too.
If your Dad isn’t into spicy foods, get him some flavored oils to use for grilling or to make his own pasta mixes. Or adopt an olive tree in his name and let the gifts keep on giving that year.
Thankfully, Nudo wants one of your Dad’s (or you, if you already have a gift for your Dad) to have this Aglio, Olio, Pepperoncino Gift Set, too!
I’ve got one set to giveaway that comes with all this, including those super spicy chillies. Seriously, don’t try to be brave with ’em. You’ll be sorry.
· One 250ml tin of Nudo’s olive oil, stone ground with fresh Italian garlic
· One 500g box of organic spaghetti
· One 50g box of dried Calabrian chillies

· One recipe card for spaghetti aglio, olio e pepperoncino, a classic Italian dish
