▪ KITCHEN COLLABORATIONS
Letting members in on the secret of their “special sauce” that makes their brick oven pizza so tasty, the Carl M. Freeman property, Bear Trap Dunes, offers meal kits to make these popular pies at home. In addition, the Troon-managed property in Ocean View, Del., has been keeping member spirits high with irresistible daily specials. From steamed Maine whole lobster to comforting Yankee pot roast, the culinary team keeps curbside service elevated and interesting.
El Macero Country Club, located in the heart of Sacramento Valley, Calif., is focused on family, friendship, and fun for everyone. As it has at many country clubs, carryout service has gained popularity in the last few months, with the culinary team’s take on Taco Tuesday being a fiesta of carne asada, shrimp, and chicken tacos. The at-home kit, for any size party, includes all the flair and pairs best with a pitcher of the club’s frosty margarita concoction. Limited-quantity specials create excitement and anticipation at El Macero, and culinary creativity abounds with dishes like grilled Szechuan chicken thighs served with jasmine citrus rice and grilled sweet peppers.
Many clubs are sharing their bartending secrets, too, with mixology demonstrations of “quarantini” cocktails, and packaged libation mixes (just add the alcohol) for at-home enjoyment.
