This Sunday, the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles will be brimming with the who’s who of primetime television at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The award ceremony will honour the best of our favourite TV actors as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. And following the award show will be the highly coveted (read, epic) after party, a.k.a. the Emmys Governor Ball.
Not only is the Governors Ball a massively star-studded affair, it is known for its amazing spread as well. According to a press release, the theme for this year’s dinner is “Golden Grandeur” and the lavish spread will pride itself with a set menu complete with three delectable courses from Chef Joachim Splichal and Patina Catering.
“All décor and food elements for the Governors Ball and Creative Arts Governors Ball events are either recyclable, repurposed or bio-degradable,” added Ed Fassl, Governors Ball Committee Co-Chair. “All the elements will come together to create an inspiring and unforgettable experience for our guests.”
The Emmys’s official website released the official menu for the dinner and the three courses are nothing short of delectable! The first course will feature a preparation called the Last of the Heirlooms, which will pack local heirloom tomatoes, dinosaur plum, red quinoa, charred leek vinaigrette, balsamic jelly, basils, and sea salt. Yes, we’re drooling too!
Further, for the main course, there will be a Pan Roasted Filet Mignon made with mission figs, asparagus, purple marble potatoes, roasted red flame grapes, creamy horseradish puree, and whole grain mustard sauce. But that’s not all, because the third course will be a rich Alugna Brownie Bar, which is essentially dulche de leche, roasted cherrie, and cherry gel.
It sure does pay to be in the acting industry! But don’t worry, because the chefs have very generously released to recipes of their Emmy preparations. So you too can enjoy a lavish meal as you watch the Emmy Awards this weekend!
