Emmy Awards Governors Ball to Feature ‘Assortment of Plant-Based Dishes’
The Governors Ball following the 70th Annual Emmy Awards this year will feature the “most impressive menu yet,” packed with plant-based options.
Patina Catering, which has catered the event for 22 years, stated on Instagram:
“We will be serving an assortment of plant-based dishes at the @televisionacad’s 70th annual Emmy® Awards Governors Ball this year! Who wants to try this Cashew “Ceviche” cup?!”
The company added that the menu will include over 35 “different fine-dining small plates,” using “biodegradable wooden boats and forks.”
According to Food & Wine,
“New on the menu this year will be more vegetarian and vegan items, including a cashew ceviche with lime-marinated cashew, hearts of palm, cucumber, leche de tigre, avocado mousse, and crispy blue corn; sweet corn agnolotti with lime brown butter and toasted hazelnuts; and truffle-scented French fries.”
The 70th Annual Emmy Awards is set to take place on Monday September 17.
In 2016, the after party of the 88th annual Academy Awards featured a vegan menu and in both 2016 and 2017, the ceremony for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards also included a plant-based menu.
