As the home of the Golden Globe Awards for a total of 44 times and for the last 40 consecutive years, The Beverly Hilton's legendary International Ballroom will be the scene where the show, hosted for the third year in a row by Golden Globe Award winners Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will be broadcast live coast-to-coast on NBC (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) on Sunday, January 11, 2015 and seen in more than 192 countries worldwide.
Inspired by California's abundance of fresh produce and celebrating the extensive reach of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, The Beverly Hilton's executive chefs prepared a three-course menu that included a Modern Waldorf Salad with Lemon Emulsion Dressing followed by an entrée duo of Roasted Onion-Marinated Filet Mignon and Slow Baked Arctic Char with Potato Croquette, Heirloom Cherries and Tomato Fondue and Black Tuscan Kale. Dinner will be finished with a dessert trio of Cassis Lemon Cheesecake, Chocolate Alliance Salted Caramel and Hazelnut Dacquoise.
"I take great pride in creating this menu for the Golden Globe Awards that's as extraordinary as the awards ceremony itself," said The Beverly Hilton's Executive Chef Troy N. Thompson. "This year's menu showcases the fresh, local produce that we always use here at The Beverly Hilton with exciting yet balanced flavors. It's an honor to lead our team of 40 chefs and 100 culinary team members who have been preparing all year for this celebration of Hollywood's best."
The Beverly Hilton's Executive Chef Troy N. Thompson, who joined the iconic hotel's culinary team in the summer of 2014, presented this year's exclusive menu for the Golden Globe Awards for the first time. Since his arrival, the acclaimed chef has successfully overseen menus for high-profile events and galas at The Beverly Hilton such as The Carousel of Hope Ball and The BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards. Creating the showstopping dessert for his fifth consecutive year is The Beverly Hilton's Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi.
Additional highlights of the menu reveal included a champagne cocktail tasting by Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of the Golden Globe Awards. This year, Moët & Chandon will co-star on the red carpet and tables at the Golden Globes with its family of champagnes. Stars will be served 1,500 Moët Impérial minis on the red carpet; 400 magnums of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2004 and Moët Impérial Rosé at their tables during the awards ceremony; and 500 Moët cocktails served at the bars.
To adorn the tables and create an award-winning backdrop for the dinner, famed florist Mark Held of MARK'S GARDEN® used six varieties of roses, miniature orchids, and hydrangea accented with lisianthus. Vivid blocks of color are featured in each arrangement creating a dramatic impression worthy of the star-studded party.
