Food Writer, Rose Fooks

Samuel Goldsmith, Food Editor
Sam has a great idea for his father, he says “I’ll be buying my Dad a Masala Dabba as he loves making curries and he can keep all his spices in them.” A Masala Dabba is a round box with smaller tins inside used to store and mix spices. Looks like Sam inherited his kitchen expertise from his father!
Jessica Ransom, Senior Food Writer
Jessica’s dad is a big fan of eggs so she will be searching for a specific kooky present. She says “I’ll be trying to buy my dad some turkey eggs because he’s obsessed with all things eggs and would eat them for every meal if he could!”
One turkey egg is about the equivalent size as three hens eggs, so perhaps she could even make him a special big egg themed brunch.
Keiron George, Food Writer
Keiron is opting for a tried and tested gift. He explains “I’ll be sending my dad a SpiceBox curry box this Fathers Day. He loves making curries, and having tried this one myself, I know he’ll love it.” The Spice Box @ Home make recipe boxes with ingredients enough to feed 4-5 and cost £45. Perfect for a fathers day feast.
