One of the best parts of the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards is the delicious food and drink served before and during the televised event. SheKnows was able to get a sneak peek at what the stars will be dining on while Amy Poehler and Tina Fey grace the stage with their comedy.
Once the celebrities have been whisked off the red carpet, they will be greeted with a signature cocktail called the Moët Golden Knight from Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of the Golden Globes for the 23rd consecutive year. While they have been serving bubbly over the years, this is the first time the company has designed a specialty drink with hints of pear brandy, champagne and cardamom syrup.
SheKnows spoke with Moët spokesperson and celebrity food expert Aida Mollenkamp about why the time is right for a new drink.
She shared, "I think the cocktail culture has become more and more popular. It's time for the reinvention of a classic cocktail that's made with champagne. We wanted something just as easy and just as glamorous."
After downing a drink or two, the A-listers are going to need some sustenance. The chefs from the Beverly Hilton demonstrated some of the incredible food that will be served on Sunday. From appetizers like grilled artichoke on multigrain tabbouleh and tahini to the divine surf-and-turf entree highlighting a Mediterranean spice-crusted braised beef and a sauteed smoked filet of Atlantic sea trout, no one will be going home hungry.
The hotel's Executive Chef, Suki Sugiura, said, "It is a thrill to put together the menu yet again for the Golden Globe Awards. With a staff of more than 200, our culinary team looks forward to dazzling our guests on a world stage."
The meal will be topped off with a light dessert of gusto mango with almond sponge cake and crème anglaise. With all of those fancy couture gowns on fit and lean stars, it is questionable that anyone will actually indulge in the delicious sweets.
The table setting will be adorned by the work of celebrity florist Mark Held and his company Mark's Garden.
He told SheKnows, "We have to do something low so people can see and be seen, of course. The last few years, we've done red, which looks great with black tuxes, black gowns and the red carpet. It all makes sense. We wanted to do something different, so this year, we decided at Golden Globes... we are going to do gold."
The floral arrangements that will complete each table setting will have gold-tone roses and rust-colored calla lilies with vases wrapped in metallic fabric for a dramatic flair.
Who will win on Sunday is yet to be determined, but whether they win or lose, at least the celebs will be well-fed.
