This past weekend, the Golden Globes and the HFPA altered the status-quo of awards-show party status by serving an entirely vegan menu for the dinner-show fete. The Beverly Hilton Executive Chef Matthew Morgan, who created the menu, was initially surprised by the sudden switch a few weeks before the show, “We changed the menu to being completely plant-based because the HFPA came to us with the idea, and we were excited about being a part of the message that they wanted to send,” he told the Courier. “The inspiration behind the dish (King Oyster Mushroom ‘scallops’) was that I wanted to create a plant-based dish that was as substantial, beautiful, and felt like a more traditional main entree. We have seen such a large increase in demand for plant-based dishes in recent years, and that experience was beneficial in creating this menu.”
