Cooking with Team Chervò

Cooking with Team Chervò

When in Rome…is to learn to master a preferred Italian dish by a renowned Italian Chef Andrea Palmieri a Tovola con lo Chef.

Back in September, the week of the Italian Open at the beautiful Marco Simone Golf Course, home to the 2023 Ryder Cup, Chervò Athletes Kurt Kitayama, PGA & DP World Tour Member and Johannes Veerman, DP World Tour Member put down their clubs and picked up their Chervò chef hats in Rome.

No doubt these two worldly gents are crowd pleasers both on and off the course.

Traveling the world, juggling a rigorous tour schedule, the players often choose to room together so this shared kitchen space is nothing new. Long time friends and professional peers, the charming banter between the two showcases a solid comradery and proof of a true friendship and mutual respect for each other’s talent, love for good food…and great clothes. What was on the menu? Amatriciana!! Other wise known as an amazing pasta sauce, based on guanciale, pecorino romano, tomato sauce and chili pepper

Both born in California, their love of the game is how they met and grew a friendship. Currently, Kurt lives the “chill” bachelor life in Las Vegas and this year, Johannes, took on the new role as “daddy” and lives in College Station, TX with his wife Angela and their 9 month old son Hans. When these two get together it’s nothing but lighthearted laughs, total boy humor with a side of dad jokes.

Never turning down the opportunity to learn how each perfects their golf swing, the players were all ears when it came to the expertise and authenticity of Chef Andrea Palmieri. Sharing his secret sauce, Chef Andrea Palmieri, elevated the player’s cooking game from buona to Mama Mia!!
