Every year, the Beverly Hilton Hotel chefs are tasked with feeding Hollywood's best and brightest. With names like Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston and J.Lo on the guest list, the task is no easy feat. So what exactly does one feed such a crowd?
Matthew Morgan, the Executive Chef, knows exactly: vegan cuisine.
For 2020, the entire Golden Globes menu will be meat and dairy-free. The decision was made by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, but Morgan was more than happy to take on the challenge.
“As long term partners of the HFPA, we are pleased to support their decision to offer an entirely plant-based menu for the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Our talented culinary team is excited to create dynamic plant-based offerings,” Morgan said in a statement.
The menu will include an appetiser of chilled golden beet soup. An entrée with wild mushroom risotto, Brussels sprouts, globe carrots, and pea tendrils, and the main course of King Oyster Mushroom scallop. For dessert, there’s a vegan opera dome with praline Gunaja crumble and caramelized hazelnuts.
While we're not sure how some of Hollywood will take the new move, we know Leo (a dedicated environmentalist and activist of the vegan diet) is on board!
