The Masters is full of traditions but one of my favorites is the Masters Club Dinner. The invite only dinner is "hosted" by the winner from the previous year and welcomes all previous Masters winners. It could be the most exclusive dinner in all of sports.
What's on the 2012 menu? The 2011 Winner, Charl Schwartzel wanted it to be casual but have some of his South African roots. According to an article in The Post Game, Schwartzels BBQ themed menu includes the following:
- Biltong (Appetizer)
- Droëwors (Appetizer)
- Various Seafood
- Lamb Chops
- Filet Steaks
The menu will also include traditional BBQ sides and of course, dessert.
What Would Be On Your Menu?
It's unlikely I'll ever win The Masters (understatement) but I gave some thought to what would be on my menu if the opportunity arises. The appetizers would include a raw bar featuring clams and oysters on the half shell. For the non-raw eaters, bacon wrapped scallops and "pigs in a blanket".
The dinner would be a BBQ including grilled flank steak (Rocket, my dad, would man the grill), hot italian sausage, hamburgers and grilled chicken. I'm not big on sides but potato and macaroni salad as well as french fries and a traditional salad.
Dessert would be simple, an assortment of pastries including cannoli's, cream puffs, eclairs and mini pies for everyone to sample. Why choose just one when you can have them all.
Your turn.... If you win The Masters, what will be on your menu? Leave a comment!
