Father's Day: Our Favorite Stories About Dad

In honor of the holiday, we collect our favorite dad articles

Many of us have been lucky enough to grow up with dads who love to cook, who have mastered crème brûlée or grilling or taught us to make perfect rice. Others have dads who just love to eat, who will dig into a shared plate happily and are always ready to share a meal. This Sunday, we'll honor all of them, maybe with pancakes or a special dinner or a thoughtful food-related gift. In the spirit of Father's day, we're sharing some of our most memorable stories about Dad—and we hope you'll share yours in the comments.
