If you can’t be at the Golden Globes Awards this year, don’t feel bad: we have a sneak preview of the dinner celebrities like Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck will be enjoying so that you can still feel like you’re part of the action.
Executive Chef Suki Sugiura, Executive Sous Chef Chris O’Connell and Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi of The Beverly Hilton have created the menu that 1,300 members of the Hollywood elite will enjoy on Jan. 12.
The three-course menu is inspired by California’s abundance of fresh produce and celebrating but also celebraes the reach of the Hollywood Foreign Press.
Appetizer choices include Grilled Eggplant with Sundried 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 Multigrain Tabbouleh and Tahini; followed by an entrée of Mediterranean Spice Crusted Braised Beef Short Rib and Sautéed Smoked Filet of Atlantic Sea Trout with Spinach Sweet Corn Ragout and Light Cream of Tomato Dill Sauce. Dinner will be finished with an inventive Gusto Mango dessert on Almond Sponge Cake with Crème Anglaise.
Complimenting the three-course menu, Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of the Golden Globe® Awards, will be pouring a 2004 Grand Vintage Brut Champagne.
To adorn the tables and create an award-winning backdrop for the dinner, famed florist Mark Held of MARK’S GARDEN® used a varied mix of gorgeous gold-tone roses and rust-colored calla lilies for the floral arrangements. Each glass vase centered on the table is wrapped with metallic fabric creating a dramatic impression worthy of the star-studded party.
