For the rest of the world, all eyes will be on the stars and the winner's at the Golden Globes. But for the star's themselves, many eyes will be on the food and the drink. The Beverly Hilton Hotel unveiled the menu and decorations for the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards on Friday. Famed chefs including Suki Sugiura and Thomas Henzi are in charge of the gastronomical fare for the upcoming awards on January 13. SOUNDBITE: Executive Chef, Suki Sugiura, saying (English): "This year the concept is contemporary global taste with California flair. Guests will start with a contemporary Mediterranean dish, before a main course of ocean trout and braised short rib. And for dessert, something with a little oomph. SOUNDBITE: Executive Pastry Chef, Thomas Henzi, saying (English): "This is our Mango Gusto, the Golden Globe dessert for 2014." Along with the three-course menu, guests will enjoy a Moet & Chandon 2004 Grand Vintage Brut Champagne, as well as a mixed drink featuring the champagne, called the 'Moet Golden Night.' That's been mixed by celebrity chef and entertainment expert, Aida Mollenkamp. SOUNDBITE: Celebrity Chef and Entertainment Expert, Aida Mollenkamp, saying (English): "The Moet Golden Night, which is really inspired by the Golden Globes themselves, we wanted to keep that golden color, and what it is, is a combination of cardamom simple syrup, pear brandy and Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne." The menu wasn't the only thing unveiled at the Beverly Hilton - floral arrangements were also on display. And, rather unsurprisingly, the theme for this year's Golden Globes is... gold.
