At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, The Beverly Hilton’s new Executive Chef Troy N. Thompson and Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi will prepare a menu of delicacies for 1,300 members of Hollywood’s film and television elite. The three-course menu, which is inspired by California’s abundance of fresh produce and which celebrates the extensive reach of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will take 40 chefs and 100 culinary team members to prepare. The good news: you can prepare this same very menu at home all by yourself for your very own Golden Globes dinner. Here are Thompson’s recipes for Modern Waldorf Salad with Lemon Emulsion Dressing followed by an entrée duo of Roasted Onion-Marinated Filet Mignon and Slow-Baked Arctic Char with Potato Croquette, Heirloom Cherries and Tomato Fondue and Black Tuscan Kale (dinner will also include a dessert trio of Cassis Lemon Cheesecake, Chocolate Alliance Salted Caramel and Hazelnut Dacquoise, though we have not included the recipe here. We have, however, provided a visual aid so you can salivate in silence). Here’s how to recreate the 2015 Golden Globes menu at home.
