Dining in Style at the Golden Globe Awards

Golden Globe dessertWe’re getting hungry for the Golden Globe Awards!

The Golden Globe Awards, held Sunday, January 12, at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, is one of the few major entertainment awards shows that invites guests to dine during the ceremony.

We were curious about the menu, and found all the details on the Golden Globe website.

According to the site, Hilton Executive Chef Suki Sugiura has created a California-influenced menu for 1,500 Golden Globe guests, using a staff of 200 to make sure the dinner goes off without a hitch. After all, the world is watching!

His three-course menu includes an appetizer trio of grilled eggplant with sun-dried tomato and pine nut hummus on seared tomato; mini sweet pepper with feta cheese, pomegranate, herbs and California olive oil on grilled pita; and grilled artichoke on multi-grain tabbouleh and tahini.

The entrée is Mediterranean spice crusted braised beef short rib and sautéed smoke filet of Atlantic sea trout with spinach sweet corn ragout and light cream of tomato dillgolden Globe cocktail sauce.

For dessert: gusto mango on almond sponge cake with creme Anglaise, topped with edible gold dust.

Moët & Chandon is the official champagne of the show. They’ll reportedly go through 125 cases of 2004 Grand Vintage Brut magnums, along with a few cases of Impérial Rosé.

And, for the first time, a special Golden Globes cocktail has been created: The Moet Golden Night, created by Chef Aida Mollenkamp using Moet Imperial, cardamom syrup and pear brandy. It’s garnished with a fan of fresh pear slices.

No matter who wins, or loses, at least they’ll all be extremely well fed.
