Father’s Day is a time to show your dad or any other father figure in your life how much you care about him. Sure, you can write a cute note on a card detailing your appreciation, treat him to lunch, or go with a homemade gift you’ll know he’ll appreciate. But these nine Father’s Day gift ideas are for the dad who loves to cook.

Cooking is a passion often passed down from generation to generation. But that doesn’t mean your dad should still regularly use his great-grandparent’s cast-iron skillet. Save that skillet for special occasions and help him freshen up his favorite room in the house with a few new cooking tools, deluxe pantry staples and kitchen utensils.
