Talking GolfGetaways 19: Golf Kitchen’s Diana DeLucia


The latest “Talking GolfGetaways” connects you with Diana DeLucia, the internationally renowned culinary writer and photographer who brings us “a unique portfolio of recipes, photos and interviews from the kitchens and fairways of 16 illustrious golf destinations” in her stunning new “Golf Kitchen” coffee-table book.

Hosts Mitch Laurance and Darin Bunch dive into a great conversation with Diana, founder and CEO of, as she shares what drove her to create a truly one-of-a-kind project. She discusses how she began to expand on a previous project (“Golf Club World — Behind The Gates”) to create Golf Kitchen — and how she came to include the acclaimed chefs (and their recipes) whose creations grace the pages of the book. She describes why she feels Golf Kitchen is so unique; recounts the recent launch of Golf Kitchen at famous Winged Foot Golf Club; and talks about the process of choosing the clubs and recipes from a world full of possibilities.

Diana also gives us some background on her own journey from a small town in Australia to interviewing some of the world’s most famous chefs — and photographing their work — all of which led to the project that is destined to become one of the most coveted gifts for any golfer. In this episode, you’ll get away not only to famous courses and destinations but also to the place most of us are rarely privileged to visit — inside the world of Golf Kitchen.
