Milwaukee-area food pros celebrate Father’s Day by cooking at home

For many dads, Father’s Day means a round of golf, a day of relaxation, or maybe a cookout. But what about dads who work in the restaurant industry?

From cooking for their families to serving their communities, here’s how five Milwaukee-area food pros will celebrate the day Sunday.

Like father, like son: Jason Alston of Heaven’s Table BBQ

Jason Alston, owner of Heaven’s Table BBQ, 5507 W. North Ave., expects to cook on Father’s Day — for his family. “I grill for Mother’s Day, and I’m going to be grilling for Father’s Day, too,” Alston said.

He’ll have help from 2-year-old son Nehemiah, though.

“Nehemiah won’t let me boil water without pulling up the booster to help. He likes to eat anything I eat, and he already loves to cook,” Alston said.
