23rd SAG Awards honoring the best in film and television will be a night of red carpets, awards, toasting, and dinner. The elegance at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall with 17,100 square feet of the red carpet, attendees (247 actors, 525 performers, and 700 staff), and dinner.
The dinner menu created by Wolfgang Puck will feature the top ingredients. Dinner is a twist on surf and turf with chicken and salmon as proteins. The salmon preparation is Green Tea Marinated Salmon with Bulgur Wheat, Tofu, and Sweet Soy. You can enjoy the Green Tea Marinated Salmon the recipe is here. The chicken dish is Spiced Chicken with Moroccan Couscous and Saffron Aioli. The final touch roasted acorn squash with toasted farro topped with Lolla Rossa lettuce, almonds, and cider vinaigrette. Stars like Lily Tomlin, Viola Davis, and Ryan Gosling will dine in elegance.
The room will bring the feel of elegance with a theme of black. The draperies will be black with chains. The floor covered with black carpet. The stage floor covered with Formica. The ceiling graced by chandeliers and chains gracing the beautiful tables for the celebrities.
The tables will carry the elegance with CJ Matsumoto & Sons nature inspiration with the every changing textures found in nature.
