The 72nd Golden Globes are tomorrow and today I am giving you a peak at what the stars will be served (notice I didn’t say eating!) during the event. The Beverly Hilton will play host again to the event and the chefs at the hotel have come up with a very “golden” menu.
The executive chef, Troy N. Thompson, says the menu is a reflection of the state’s abundance of fresh produce. The roughly 1300 guests will have a choice between a meat or vegetarian three-course meal.
The appetizer served will be a modern take on a waldorf salad with lemon emulsion.
For the meat eater, the main entrée is a duo of slow roasted Arctic char and onion marinated filet tenderloin. It will be served with a red wine sauce, an heirloom tomato compote, and a potato croquette in the middle, topped with a black Tuscan kale chip.
For the vegetarians, the main entrée is a handmade ricotta and basil cannoli served on tomato sauce and topped with Parmesan cheese and fresh thinly sliced California vegetables.
For dessert, the stars will be served a trio of cassis lemon cheesecake, chocolate alliance salted caramel, and hazelnut dacquoise.
At the awards, there will be 40 chefs, 110 culinary staff, 50 bartenders, and 250 servers will prep dishes for more than 1,300 guests. There will more than 700 pounds of beef tenderloins, 400 pounds of fish, and 1,000 heads of Romaine! And, flowing all night will be over 400 cases of Brut magnum Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2004 Champagne!!
Watch the Golden Globes on NBC Sunday night at 8pm ET.
