Maybe he taught you how to throw a curveball or how to drive. Perhaps he had an uncanny knack for revving you up with a tickle fight ten minutes before bed, much to your glee (and mom’s chagrin). Or maybe he mercilessly interrogated every single boy you ever brought home. No matter what, he and mom are your biggest fans, which begs the question: Why not prepare a meal for your equally brunch-worthy father to rival the most elaborate Mother's Day spread? Here is a selection of menu items for a feast to celebrate dad in the style he deserves.

    blanka.n says: I really want everyone to make this for Father's Day. It's Cherry Clafouti and I just posted it on Food 52. I made it for a girlfriend and her daughter as a brunch snack last summer and they both loved it. If you've got cherries lying around and no plans for them - this is the dish. It's like a cake pancake with lots of juicy cherries. You can serve it as a side with eggs and sausage and you'll have an unforgettable brunch feast.
