A great gift for any golfer, whether or not he will ever visit Augusta National or see The Masters in person. As a caddy at Augusta National Golf Club, Tripp Bowden learned lessons about golf, life—and food.
Here Bowden shares forty of his favorite recipes inspired by his life spent behind-the-scenes at Augusta.
Complete with full-color photos, this book—certainly not standard by any cookbook terms—features surprising spins on a variety of delicious table-friendly, comfort food classics:
- Honey Baked Ham butter beans,
- Caddy house gumbo,
- Collard greens and pot liquor
- Deep fried pork chop sandwiches
- New England clam chowder
- Clubhouse ice cream
- Toasted pound cake (also known as Mr. Roberts's Dessert)
- And dozens more!
Along the way, Bowden contextualizes how and when he enjoyed some of these unexpected culinary delights as he details his unique caddy experiences and the lifelong friendships forged through food and golf. In doing so, he creates a real treat for golf lovers and food enthusiasts alike, with elements of unscripted humor reminiscent of the classic Caddyshack sprinkled and dashed throughout!
