But what were they eating? That’s always been my question: When Truman and Eisenhower came together over lunch after the JFK funeral, what was served? Supposedly sandwiches. But ham and cheese? Tuna? We may never know.
At the 2014 Golden Globes, thanks to Variety, we do know that the stars had a few options:
The menu at the gala, prepared by executive chef Suki Sugiura, offered a choice of these starters: grilled eggplant with sun-dried tomato pine nuts, mini sweet pepper with feta cheese and grilled artichoke on multigrain tabbouleh. For the main dish, there was Mediterranean spice-crusted braised beef short rib or sautéed smoked filet of Atlantic sea trout. The dessert was a mango with compote. And there were three different alcohol options–chardonnay, malbec or champagne.
Not to mention the backstage bar—”buffet of fruits and vegetables, an assortment of desserts and a towering chocolate display courtesy of Godiva.”
But does anyone actually finish his plate? Wouldn’t you be too nervous to eat? Or too drunk? By my count, there were three references to vodka on last night’s show, though I don’t remember P. Diddy saying anything except, “Let it flow!” (Bono was having none of it.)
