With the PGA Championship beginning on Thursday, a few world-class chefs have added golf to their zest, creating dishes inspired by holes at this year's venue, Whistling Straits. In April, the PGA of America and Bon Appetit teamed up for the "Champions of the Course" program, offering tips from golf professionals, as well as cooking inspiration from chefs based on golf. The program culminates at the PGA Championship with a number of original recipes and ideas based on the holes and design of Whistling Straits.
Hole No. 1 - Outward Bound
The first hole at Whistling Straits is a relatively short 408-yard par-4 where accuracy is crucial as there are deep bunkers surrounding the green.
Crabmeat Ravigote, by John Besh
Since Outward Bound is the first hole of the course, Besh felt that a refreshing dish was necessary, and ravigote literally means "refresh." This is a cool and refreshing dish to take down after finishing a round, consisting of lemon juice, vinegar and Tabasco sauce. The tangy dressing that is created in this New Orleans classic meal makes the crabmeat that much more refreshing.
