Win or lose, nominees will get to eat burrata on Sunday.
On January 7, the Beverly Hilton will host Hollywood’s biggest players at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards. As viewers at home pay close attention to the outfits, the monologue, the awkward interstitial sketches and the acceptance speeches, a vast behind-the-scenes production will be buzzing to feed roughly 1,300 attendees a gourmet meal.
Executive chef Alberico Nunziata and pastry chef Thomas Henzi of The Beverly Hilton announced the three-course menus they’ll serve at the event in a Wednesday press release. The stars will start off with a Delicata appetizer consisting of burrata cheese, basil, tomatoes, garlic flowers and butternut squash, followed by an entrée of Mediterranean Chilean Seabass served with red beet Parmesan risotto. (Keep stars wearing white in your thoughts and prayers.) The meal will finish with a dessert of Efendi, made with white chocolate coffee cream, a coffee liqueur biscuit, Frangelico mascarpone and praline. Meanwhile, at-home viewers will be treated to stale pretzels they found in the back of the cabinet and a beer they’re “pretty sure is still fine to drink.”
Per usual, gallons and gallons of Moët & Chandon will be flowing to keep the affair interesting and, fingers crossed, dramatic. The Awards’ official cocktail for 2018 is candied orange-topped “Moët 75,” concocted by Jamie Chung.
The show will broadcast live on NBC (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) on Sunday, January 7, 2018.
