The 2024 edition of The Masters is 23 days away, and on Tuesday, the menu for Jon Rahm's Champions Dinner was revealed.

This year's event will be hosted in honor of Rahm, the 2023 winner. As is tradition, the defending champion gets to select the menu for the following year's dinner, which takes place two days before the start of the tournament.

Among the dishes chosen by Rahm, who hails from Spain, are a basque crab salad, ribeye and a variety of tapas. Of course, Rahm could not forget Mama Rahm’s Classic Lentil Stew.

“A lot of things are not people’s favorites, but it’s something that’s very common in the Basque country,” Rahm said during a Tuesday conference call for the Masters.

Rahm told the Subpar golf podcast last year that he planned to consult with his friend, world-renowned Spanish chef José Andrés, when creating the 2024 menu.

“I wanted to put a little bit of my heritage and my family into this dinner, which is going to make it even more special,” Rahm said. “It should be quite special. And they’re going to try a few things that they maybe haven’t seen before that are really quite tasty.”

Past Masters champions Tiger Woods, Scottie Scheffler, Jack Nicklaus and Phil Mickelson, among others, are expected to be in attendance this year. The dinner menus for past Masters champions have varied widely but are always connected to where the previous winner hails from.

In 2023, Scheffler's menu included cheeseburger sliders, firecracker shrimp and a warm chocolate-chip skillet cookie with milk-and-cookies ice cream. Woods went with fajitas, sushi and sashimi and finished with milkshakes for dessert in 2019.

Sergio Garcia, the last Spaniard to win the tournament in 2017, chose international salad, traditional Spanish lobster rice and a dessert of tres leche cake.

Rahm won the 2023 Masters by four strokes over Mickelson and Brooks Koepka. One year later, all three are members of LIV Golf after Rahm left the PGA Tour in December, 18 months after Koepka and Mickelson signed on to play in the rival golf league.
