What Did the Celebs Nosh on at the 70th Annual Golden Globes? After weeks of cleansing, fasting and otherwise blasting their food babies to squeeze into couture gowns for the Globes, we can imagine those celebs were hungry! A few of the Hollywood starlets in particular (e.g., Anne Hathaway, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts) looked REALLY hungry.
So what did they eat at the Globes this year to keep them from collapsing? According to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:
Guests at the 70th Golden Globe Awards will dine on a menu of Grilled Artichoke on Frisee served with Fennel Tomato Lemon Mousse, Kabocha pumpkin smoked dried tomato tart and pepper honey Goat Cheese as appetizers; a main course of Smoked Flat Iron Steak and Pacific Sea Bass; and Cappucino Mousse Cake for dessert. Beverly Hilton Executive Chef Suki Sugiura and Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi have created this feast, to be enjoyed with a 2004 Grand Vintage Moet et Chandon champagne on tables adorned by red rose arrangements designed by celebrity florist Mark Held.

P.S. On a related but non-culinary note…what did I think of the winners and losers? In full disclosure, I didn’t watch the awards because I was on a flight. But I was (pleasantly) surprised that Argo edged out Lincoln for best drama. I really need to go see Zero Dark Thirty, like now. Daniel Day Lewis is IMHO the best actor around today/probably ever, so his Best Actor was no surprise. Christoph Waltz was an oasis in the otherwise bizarre and awkward Django Unchained, so kudos for his Supporting Actor win. And did anyone have a chance at beating Adele for best Original Song in a Motion Picture for Skyfall? Nope. On to TV…clearly a Homeland dominated night which was no surprise. I was glad to see Downton Abbey and Girls in the mix, sad that Breaking Bad wasn’t on the board. Thank god the creepily “quirky” Zoe Deshanel didn’t beat out Girls’ Lena Dunham – the Mayans actually said that if the world didn’t end on 12/21/12 it would end when that happened.
