Father's Day Collabrewtive Brunch Features Dad's Favorite: Beer, Coffee & Breakfast

Food GPS

For naughty sons and daughters still slacking on Father's Day gifts, here's a fun spin on the usual brunch that involves day drinking, lots of coffee and six of LA's hottest restaurants.

The Collabrewtive Brunch, sponsored by Food GPS and Firestone Walker Brewing Company, pairs six local breweries with six luxury coffee spots in LA to create special coffee beers. What makes this brunch a trifecta is the fact that six of LA's best restaurants are handling the eats: Bestia, Littlefork, Cooks County, Sotto, Rivera and Huckleberry/Milo & Olive.

To help honor their dear old dads, chefs cooking at Sunday's event talked to HuffPost LA about their favorite memories of their fathers in the kitchen or around the dinner table. Click through the slideshow below to see which chef learned how to take out flare-ups with a squirt gun, or which chef grew up blasting the Beatles in the kitchen.

This little piece of advice, from the chef father of Littlefork chef Jason Travi, is our favorite: Don't start drinking until the last table is finished.

Check out participating chefs' favorite memories of their father in the kitchen and then keep scrolling for more information on the event.
