LOS ANGELES As the Golden Globes ceremony this Sunday, January 17, approaches, the event's traditional host, the Beverly Hilton, is preparing to transform into a temporary home for 6,000 people involved with the program, including about 1,300 telecast and ceremony attendees and 2,000 additional guests of viewing and after-parties throughout the hotel. (Six biggies will include parties for the Weinsteins, NBC Universal/Focus Features, In Style/Warner Brothers, HBO, Summit Entertainment, and AMC.) Representatives from more than 100 media outlets, plus fans and autograph seekers, and hotel and security staff, will also be there.
The hotel has released a preview of the meal that will be served at Sunday evening's ceremony.
Dinner includes an appetizer of garden herb-crusted California fresh mozzarella with grilled eggplant on vine-ripened tomato and arugula-radish salad. The entrées will include Mediterranean herb-braised California beef short rib with artichoke sweet pepper ragout and sautéed fillet of Pacific sea bass with truffle-endive fritto and aged balsamic vinegar and California extra virgin olive oil.
For dessert, white chocolate envelopes filled with mousseline of lime and citrus cake will include chocolate cards that read, ”The Golden Globe award goes to….” Chocolate dome sponge cakes with Cointreau and mandarin orange centers, topped with chocolate glaze and gold leaf garnished with fresh raspberries, will round out the meal.
Executive hotel chef Suki Sugiura and executive pastry chef Frania Mendivil will prepare the meal.
