What Do They Eat at The 2018 Golden Globes
Apparently not gluten, according to Vogue this year’s menu is completely gluten-free. If we look at what is on the plate we’ll find an appetizer of Burrata cheese with basil, tomatoes, Taggiasca olives, garlic flowers and butternut squash. All topped with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
The main course is Beet risotto with Chilean sea bass, Castelvetrano olive tapenade, broccolini, baby beets and zucchini. The dessert will be an Effendi with white chocolate coffee cream, crunchy praline and Frangelico mascarpone.
The menu is created by Beverly Hilton’s executive chef, Alberico Nunziata and Executive pastry chef Thomas Henzi.
I’m sure this all taste great and I understand that serving food at huge events like the Golden Globe is not the easiest of tasks. But a Burrata salad, risotto with fish and chocolate for dessert can’t really be considered the most fun food around, can it?

Man Almost Ate Napkin at Martin Berasategui
You can present a napkin in a too fancy way. At Martin Berasategui restaurant a British man almost ate the napkin. Since we live in the world of social media the couple could not just laugh about but had to share the story on Twitter where it immediately got traction. However, I have myself been served things I’ve been unsure of I was meant to eat or not at fancy places so a simple “This is a napkin” by the waiting staff could have solved this problem I guess.
