Emmys’® Governors Ball ~ Brilliance in Motion

Emmys’® Governors Ball ~ Brilliance in Motion

Sunday is the 71st Emmys® Prime Time hostless award ceremony. The nominees and winners will be honored with an after-party, Brilliance in Motion, at the L.A. LIVE Event Deck. This will be an evening of exceptional food, talent, and drinks. You can even enjoy a glamourous evening at home.

Emmys® Brilliance Party At Home

Entertaining is such always fun. There is no better time than the Emmys®. Celebrate your favorite actor/actress, streaming shows, and mini-series.

Create a great time that involves your senses. This will engage your guests. The food is one way to really bring this to light. You can create great courses that bring all five senses to the table (recipes at the end).

Decorating is always a lot of fun. The Governors Ball is using a rich palette of eggplant purple, magenta, coral, red, and Emmy gold! These are great colors for your invitations, table accents, and backdrops use scarfs or sheer fabrics.

Add fountains for just an added touch of sound. Crystals are a perfect addition to the table setting and capture the light from candles. Farmers’ Markets have beautiful flowers to use as a nice pop of color around the room. Add extra large pillows that can be used as sitting for the guest to sit while enjoying the show.

Have the evening be the formal attire. Then make a budget for the amount one can spend on the purchase of formal evening wear. Then have a golden trophy for the winner.

Gift bags for your guests as they leave is a nice surprise. You can include a personalized label bottle of wine (in Chandler AZ Down Time Wines creates personal labels), Fuji water, Lindt chocolates, and an Emmy® of their own.

Emmys® Governors Ball Theme

This event is one big celebration covering three evenings of Emmys® nominees and winners. This menu, decor, and drinks set with the theme. “The theme of Brilliance in Motion reflects both the extraordinary talent and creativity of the people and productions we honor at the Emmys®, and the vibrant experience we’ve designed for this year’s Governors Ball,” said Governors Ball Committee Co-Chair Halina Siwolop.

Emmys® Recipes

Hor d’oeuvres
KOBE BEEF MEATBALLS WITH ROASTED TOMATO SAUCE AND
CREAMY BECHAMEL

Serves 16
2# Ground Kobe Beef
1# Ground Veal (can be substituted with ground pork as needed)
3 C Toasted Ciabatta bread
1 C Whole milk
2 T Ground Fennel Seed
2 T Ground Caraway Seed
2 T Garlic Powder
1 T Onion Powder
¼ C Salt
¼ C Chopped Parsley
¼ C Chopped Basil
METHOD: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. With a knife, remove the crust of ciabatta bread and tear the
remaining bread into small pieces. Drizzle the torn beard with olive oil and toast in oven until lightly
golden brown. While the bread toasts, mix the ground beef, veal, and all the dry spices in a large bowl.
When the bread is toasted and dry, remove from oven and allow to cool. Once the bread is cool enough to handle, crumble the bread into a separate bowl and cover with the whole milk; set aside until milk has been fully absorbed by the ciabatta. When the bread is fully hydrated, combine the bread mixture with the beef mixture, and add the fresh parsley and basil. Mix well by hand until fully incorporated. Form the mixture into 2oz balls and place onto a baking tray. Bake the meatballs in a hot oven until dark golden brown and fully caramelized, about 10 minutes. Once baked, immerse the meatballs into the tomato sauce completely and allow to simmer until fully cooked. Once cooked through the meatballs are ready to
eat but can be left in the simmer sauce to be served later. Serve warm with an ample drizzle of the bechamel sauce.
TOMATO SAUCE:
¼ C Extra Virgin olive oil
8 cloves Garlic, finely sliced for minced
½ EA White onion, finely diced
½ C Dry white wine
12 Leaves basil, chiffonade
1 can San Marzano tomatoes, crushed
1 t ground black Pepper
1 T Kosher salt
½ T Chili flake
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed cooking pot, warm olive oil over low heat. Once the oil is warm add the
sliced garlic and diced onion and allow to cook for 5 minutes, stirring often to ensure the onion and garlic
does not burn. When the onion and garlic are soft and fragrant, carefully add the white wine and reduce
to ¼. After the wine is reduced add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer, stirring often, until the
sauce is thickened and smooth, approximately 1 hour. Keep the heat on low and allow the sauce to simmer
slowly for best results.
BECHAMEL:
1 C Dry white wine
4 EA Thyme sprigs
2 EA Bay leaves, fresh if available
4 EA Garlic cloves, crushed
1 EA Shallot, sliced
1 tsp black peppercorn
¼ C All-purpose flour
¼ C Unsalted butter
½ C Whole milk
½ C Heavy cream
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed saucepot place wine, thyme, bay leaves, garlic, shallot, and black
peppercorns, and simmer on low. Reduce the mixture to ¼ of the original volume. Once reduced, strain
the mixture and place the wine back into the cooking pot. Allow the wine to continue to reduce until
almost evaporated. Roughly chop the butter and add to the wine. Keeping the heat on low, allow butter to
fully melt and then whisk the flour into the butter and wine mixture to start the roux. Continue to whisk and
cook the roux until the smell of raw flour is gone, approximately ten minutes. Combine the whole milk and
heavy cream and slowly whisk into the roux watching for any lumps that may form. Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes, adding more milk if bechamel becomes too thick.

Main Course
PRIME BEEF TENDERLOIN

Serves 12
1 EA Prime beef tenderloin
2 oz Unsalted butter
6 EA Thyme sprigs
4 EA Garlic cloves
Kosher salt
Ground black pepper
METHOD: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season beef tenderloin with salt and pepper on all sides. Over medium-high heat in a cast-iron pan, sear beef tenderloin until golden and caramelized on all sides. Add
butter, thyme and crushed garlic to the pan and baste the beef with the frothy melted butter. Once basted
place in oven and cook until medium-rare, approximately 15 minutes. The internal temperature should be roughly 125 degrees if using a meat thermometer. Remove from oven and allow the beef to rest for at least
10 minutes before cutting and serving.

WHITE CHEDDAR POTATO GRATIN

4# Russet potato, peeled and finely sliced
6 EA Shallot, finely sliced
6 EA Garlic cloves, chopped
2 C Whole milk
4 C Heavy cream
2 T Kosher salt
2 T Thyme leaves, chopped
6 oz White cheddar, grated
4 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
METHOD: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a heavy-bottomed pot, sweat garlic and shallots until soft and fragrant. Add cream, milk, salt, and thyme leaves and reduce by half. While the milk and cream mixture is reducing, peel and slice the potatoes as thinly as possible and cover in cold water to prevent browning. Prepare an 8×10 inch heavy-bottomed casserole dish with cooking spray or butter. Arrange one layer of the sliced potatoes into the bottom of the casserole dish. Carefully cover the potatoes with the reduced cream. Sprinkle with the white cheddar and parmesan. Place the second layer of potatoes and again cover with cream mixture and grated cheeses. Continue this process the casserole dish is completely full. Add one final layer of the grated cheeses and cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil. Bake the gratin for 1 hour at 350 degrees, remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes to brown the top of the gratin.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Green Goddes Chop Salad

Serves 8
1 C Baby zucchini, blanched
1 C Asparagus tips, blanched
½ C English peas, blanched
½ C Edamame, blanched
½ C Green Romanesco florets, blanched
½ C Shishito peppers, lightly grilled
8 EA Broccolini, blanched
2 heads Baby artisan lettuce, leaves picked washed
½ C Green Goddess dressing
METHOD: Prepare the vegetables as stated and cut all into bite-size pieces. Wash and dry the lettuce leaves and cut into a bowl. Combine with cut vegetables and drizzle with the green goddess dressing. Carefully toss and serve. Garnish with fresh tarragon leaves and fennel frond.
GREEN GODDESS DRESSING
2 C Watercress, picked leaves, washed
½ C Basil, leaves
2 T Chives, chopped
2 T Tarragon leaves
1 EA Lemon zest and juice
½ C Mayonnaise
2 T Crème Fraiche
1 EA Anchovy
½ T Dijon mustard
2 EA Garlic cloves
METHOD: In a blender mix lemon juice, mayonnaise, crème fraiche, anchovy, Dijon mustard, and garlic cloves. Puree until smooth adding a small amount of water if the mixture becomes too thick. Add the fresh
herbs and lemon zest to the blender cup and carefully pulse to combine and fully mix the herbs and the pureed base.

Dessert
BUTTERSCOTCH BUDINO

Yield: 10 portions
1 cup Dark brown sugar
½ cup water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cup heavy cream
1.5 cup whole milk
8 ea. large egg yolks
4 tablespoon cornstarch
4 tablespoon unsalted butter
Method

  1. Combine the brown sugar, water, and salt in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, place the pan on the stove over medium heat, cook until the caramel is dark, takes about 14 minutes.
  2. Standing back with caution add the cream and milk to the caramel. This will make the mixture seize up at first, but if you keep whisking and let it heat back up, it will combine. Bring the mixture back to boil, then turn down the heat to medium.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and cornstarch.
  4. Temper the caramel mixture with eggs yolks and cornstarch by adding a cup caramel mix to the eggs mixture, whisking constantly, then pour the egg mixture back into the pan.
  5. Increase the heat to bring this mixture to a boil and keep whisking as the custard thickens from the cornstarch, should take two minutes.
    6 Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter.
  6. Strain the custard through a fine strainer to remove any big lumps that might have formed and portion the custard into ramekins.
  7. Cover the ramekins with plastic wrap and chill the custard for a least 4 hours…it’s best when you make a day ahead
