What they ate: 2009 Emmy's Governors Ball

After getting a look at the tables for the ball in this Blushing Hostess post, I thought you might be interested in the menu for the 3,600 guests who dined on the culinary work of the Patina Restaurant Group. The Governor's Ball is the largest known singular catered event in the nation each year and an impressive orchestration of event and catering talents. (I was suuuper busy cleaning up spit up and checking temperatures, so I could not make it. Again. But I have a mole/ incredibly famous dear old friend who goes and whispers secrets in my ear. None of them appear in this post, under threat of a slashing of my shoes. Oh, she knows me far too well.)

The Emmy Awards, 2009 Governors Ball Menu
Melange of peppers, eggplant caviar, red mustard leaves, potato salad, olive, smoked mushrooms, tomatoes, melons and medjool dates
Filet mignon with polenta ravioli with cauliflower and vadouvan butter, whole roasted zucchini blossom and Bloomsdale spinach
Dove Silky Smooth Milk Chocolate dessert infused with raspberry creme and paired with yuzu gelee and mint lollipop rounds

Just festivals of color and luxury on the plate, yes?

Obviously, I wasn't missing anything exciting. Pisssssshaw.

That is one massive and impressive undertaking... gives one a whole new respect for the catering industries that hadle large affairs such as that... I wanna know, where was MY invitation? Surely it must have gotten lost in the mail!
