Jack of all trades but Master of????

Carol Tenwalde

Jack of all trades but Master of NONE!

Got me thinking of the worlds greatest golfing event The Masters. Every sports journalist says: “The Masters is the best presented event in the history of sports.” Well that is something to live up to for sure.  You can read about how the greens keepers magically get the azaleas to bloom the first week of April or how the ponds are died a specific shade of blue HERE but I wanted to mention a small glitch that started 20 years ago and it all revolves around a missing Pimento Cheese Sandwich Recipe. It turns out that this Cheese Sandwich is almost as recognized as the Masters. Who Knew!!! With a place so shrouded in perfection it's pretty funny to see an episode of food-based spite politics. Yet here we are.

The Masters chose not to renew the contract for the tournament’s longtime pimento cheese vendor, Nick Rangos. Afterward, the caterer refused to share his private recipe and taking its secret to his grave in 2015. Although Ted Godfrey, Rangos’s replacement, worked tirelessly to approximate the original masterpiece, he also withheld his recipe after the Masters replaced him with in-house catering in 2013. Rangos’s surviving family did not respond to requests for comment, nor did Godfrey or the Masters’ press team. What we do have, however, is a lifelong Masters patron and Augusta food blogger who wasn’t above reverse-engineering the ingredients list from the back of the wrapper in 2016. It’s an imitation of an imitation of an approximation—but until a Rangos relative starts sharing, it’s the closest thing out there. Click Pic for Recipe! Ha!

Please let me know if you make it!
