Recipes for Success – On and Off the Course

"Recipes for Success – On and Off the Course" - EWGA Foundation Cookbook Offers Delicious Collection of Recipes & Golf Games from Members and Golf Notables

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., February 15, 2011 – In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the Executive Women's Golf Association, the EWGA Foundation is publishing "Recipes for Success – On and Off the Course", a fundraising cookbook with more than 380 recipes – and golf games contributed by EWGA members from across the country and noted friends in the golf industry.

Divided into nine golf-themed sections such as The 19th Hole (Appetizers, Snacks and Beverages), Greens in Regulation (Vegetables) and Casual Water (Seafood), this delicious collection captures the diverse flavor of this nationwide organization. EWGA members, volunteer leaders and award winners share their favorite recipes, regional specialties and quick fix creations to feed a foursome or hungry golf group.

Interspersed are tasty contributions from all facets of golf. Discover Annika's Bolognese recipe and Kathy Whitworth's King Ranch Casserole, past PGA of America president M.G. Orender's Eggplant Parmesan, Rosie Jones' Grilled Chicken Ala Rosie and Dad's Barbeque Sauce from EWGA founder Nancy Oliver. Karen Palacios-Jansen offers KPJ's Back Nine Energy Squares and Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott share their Bouillabaisse recipe, to name a few.

The final section has more than two dozen golf games for "Fun and Profit". Priced at $19.50, the cookbook will go on sale in April at the EWGA Golfpalooza (formerly known as the EWGA Conference) at Omni's Amelia Island Plantation Resort on April 13-16. Pre-orders are available through the EWGA's online store at www.ewga.com
