TEA-TIME AT THE MASTERS HISTORY:
Tea-Time at the Masters® is a three-book series published by the Junior League of Augusta, Georgia. The first cookbook of the golf-themed series, Tea-Time at the Masters®, was first released in October 1977 and is now in its 18th printing selling over 400,000 copies. Recipes in the cookbook include Crab Casserole from Mrs. Jack Nicklaus, Zucchini Bread from Mrs. Arnold Palmer and Three-Bean Casserole from Mrs. Tommy Aaron. Two-time Masters® Champion Byron Nelson also contributed, with
recipes for Spanish Pork Chops and a Mustard Ring.
The second series, Second Round: Tea-Time at the Masters®, was released in 1988. It not only offers outstanding recipes, but also a nostalgic look at the world’s most prestigious golf tournament, the Masters®. Read about the colorful history of the tournament while creating recipes from Mrs. Raymond Floyd, Mrs. Fuzzy Zoeller, Mrs. Bob Goalby, Mrs. Jack Nicklaus and a host of Augusta chefs and restaurant owners.
Par 3, Tea-Time at the Masters® is the final installment of the cookbook series. Published in 2005, it tees off with a foreword from Mrs. Jack Nicklaus, reflecting on her times spent in Augusta and at the Masters® Tournament. The cookbook features 18 themed menus providing unique party themes and a final chapter, dubbed the 19th Hole, showcasing sought-after recipes from Augusta restaurants and professional golfers. Notable recipes include cheesy shrimp and grits casserole from Augusta native Charles Howell III and the lobster ravioli recipe served at the Champions Dinner for 2004 Masters® Champion Phil Mickelson. As golf legend and Augusta National co-founder Bobby Jones instructed, “par 3 should be a test of precision, not of strength.” Par 3, Tea-Time at the Masters® menus and recipes allow one to “play with precision” when they cook and entertain.
