BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - On Friday, January 3, 2014, Executive Chef Suki Sugiura, Executive Sous Chef Chris O'Connell and Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi unveiled the menu they created for the 71st annual Golden Globe® Award show which will be served to 1,300 of Hollywood's most celebrated film stars and filmmakers. As the home of the Golden Globe® Awards for a total of 43 times and for the last 39 consecutive years, The Beverly Hilton's legendary International Ballroom will be the scene where the show, hosted by the wildly popular 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 12, 2014.

Inspired by California's abundance of fresh produce and celebrating the global reach of the Hollywood Foreign Press, The Beverly Hilton executive chefs prepared a three-course menu that includes an appetizer trio of Grilled Eggplant with Sundried Tomato and Pine Nut Hummus on Seared Tomato; Mini Sweet Pepper with Feta Cheese, Pomegranate, Herbs and California Olive Oil on Grilled Pita; and Grilled Artichoke on Multigrain Tabbouleh and
Tahini; followed by an entrée of Mediterranean Spice Crusted Braised Beef Short Rib and Sautéed Smoked Filet of Atlantic Sea Trout with Spinach Sweet Corn Ragout and Light Cream of Tomato Dill Sauce. Dinner will be finished with an inventive Gusto Mango dessert on Almond Sponge Cake with Crème Anglaise.

"It is a thrill to put together the menu yet again for the Golden Globe® Awards," said Executive Chef Suki Sugiura. "With a staff of more than 200, our culinary team looks forward to dazzling our guests on a world stage."

Complimenting the three-course menu, Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of the Golden Globe® Awards, will be pouring a 2004 Grand Vintage Brut Champagne, sure to delight guests during a show always full of surprises.

To adorn the tables and create an award-winning backdrop for the dinner, famed florist Mark Held of MARK'S GARDEN® used a varied mix of gorgeous gold-tone roses and rust-colored calla lilies for the floral arrangements. Each glass vase centered on the table is wrapped with metallic fabric creating a dramatic impression worthy of the star-studded party.
