This year marked the 44th consecutive year and the 48th time that The Beverly Hilton has been home to the Golden Globes, which was hosted by comedian Andy Samberg and actress Sandra Oh on January 6. The Beverly Hilton’s Executive Chef Matthew Morgan and Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi set the menu for the star-studded event with a specially curated menu, which was served to more than 1,000 of the biggest stars across film and television inside the hotel’s famed International Ballroom during the live telecast. Celebs including Michael Douglas, Halle Berry, Emily Blunt, Sterling K. Brown, Bradley Cooper, Idris Elba, Allison Janney, Michael B. Jordan, Lady Gaga, Lupita Nyong’o, Ben Stiller, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Dick Van Dyke, and more were in attendance.
The Beverly Hilton’s Executive Chefs curated a delicious three-course menu for the Golden Globes that was based around fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. The meal began with a Sweet Potato Vichyssoise appetizer, a vibrant take on a classic consisting of golden leeks, organic red garnet yams and roasted pepitas, topped with wild micro chives that Chef Matthew planted specifically for the dish.
For the main course, guests choose between a fish entrée and a vegan entrée. The Chilean Seabass entrée was served with forbidden black rice, white and green asparagus, globe carrots, crispy herb leaves and sweet pepper concasse. The vegan option was a local organic Stuffed Honeynut Squash served with piquillo pepper hummus, braised rainbow chard, crispy chickpeas, quinoa, golden raisins and sunflower sprouts. To round out the meal, guests enjoyed a dessert of Pistachio Cream Cheese Ivory, a flourless chocolate cake with vanilla kirsch genoise and a cream cheese charlotte pistachio center.
