Dine & Dish: Special Dishes for Father’s Day

Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Fatherhood is one of life’s little joys.

Mina and his wife are whipping up some special dishes and beverages for Father’s Day.

Usually Mina is back in the kitchen and like a lot of dad’s, he’s by the grill.

His wife of nearly 30 years, Diane, takes over the menu for dad’s day.

Her specialty cocktails with her own bloody Mary mix are made of garden vegetables.

To dress it up, they whip up oyster shooters with a dash of dirty Diane.

And for dads who have been at the BBQ all day long you might want to give them something refreshing — with or without alcohol.

Chef Mina’s tip for BBQing: keep it hot.

The other piece of advice: Don’t get distracted or you’ll end up burning your BBQ and having to eat out.

Either way he’ll be happy to hook you up.

Here are two Mina’s recipes for Father’s Day:
