Los Angeles chef Troy N. Thompson has revealed what celebrities such as like Reese Witherspoon and Benedict Cumberbatch will be eating on the evening of the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.

On Sunday, 11 January, Californian farmers and their fresh produce will steal the spotlight as the stars tuck into locally-grown ingredients at Hollywood's highest profile dinner of the year.

The executive chef will prepare a healthy and modern take on the traditional Waldorf salad, which typically contains apples, celery, walnuts and lettuce, to start. "You have to be healthy there," explains the chef.

He says that the vegetarian entrée, ricotta cannoli, contains "ricotta and basil, handmade pasta". "Then," adds the chef at the preview of the menu, "we just warm it up with a little Parmesan cheese on top, a little tomato sauce on top of that and fresh thinly sliced California vegetables."

The chef tasked with the preparation of the star meal told People: "I feel like these dishes are a really nice way to showcase the fresh produce we always use here at the Beverly Hilton, and our great relationships with the farmers who grow it."
