Beverly Hills - When it comes to the menu for the Golden Globes, it is all about the calories. Or cutting them a bit. The 72nd Golden Globe Awards airs on NBC Sunday, Jan. 11.
Well, at least that is the attempt by Chef Troy N. Thompson, as noted in a release from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. As the Golden Globe Awards get handed out, one thing stands out on TV. They eat and drink on TV, which is actually rare for celebrities.
But, first about those roses on the table. “Normally we go with something more serious," creator Mark Held said. The ensemble will include six varieties of roses, miniature orchids, and hydrangea accented with Lisianthus. “...this year they wanted something playful as is befitting the best party of the year, that is the Golden Globes”.
Food and drink are a big part of award season and that itself equates to big business.
But, chef Thompson "prepared his recipes with an eye to cutting calories while maintaining taste," the release noted.
Guests will start the feast start with julienne of apple, celery and grapes (in an emulsion of whipped egg white and lemon juice). That is rather than the traditional mayonnaise. All of this settled on a bed of romaine lettuce, topped with a crouton, drizzled with walnut oil.
They insist the meal was grown on farms in California.Yes, the diets and, of those fads, are taken in as well. If one has a food allergy, that is known. If one does not eat meat, etc., that is all taken into consideration.
The entrée is a duo of onion-marinated filet Mignon and slow-baked arctic chard with a potato croquette and heirloom cherries, a tomato fondue and black Tuscan kale. The desert features Cassis lemon cheesecake, chocolate alliance salted caramel and hazelnut dacquoise form little turrets. And, as they noted, it is all "linked by a bolt of pure chocolate sauce and a slender finger of white chocolate, fruit reductions of intense mango, raspberry and lemon punctuate the ensemble; one of the turrets balances a ball of gold."
In a nutshell, the Golden Globes will have 150 serving staff. They will be serving more than 700 lbs. of beef tenderloins; more than 400 lbs. of fish, 1,000 heads of Romaine, 10,000 silverware and plate settings, 600 full-sized bottles of wine and 400 Moet & Chandon magnums, not to mention 1,500 Champagne Mini’s. And those mini's are specially adapted to convert the bottle into a flute.
In other words, they can drink right out of the bottle.
One drink will be a special one. The drink is a describes as a blend of clementines and Moet Imperial Rose. It was created by Elettra Wiedermann. On the surface that may not mean much, but her mom is Isabella Rosellini. Her grandmother was none other than Ingrid Bergman.
