Forget places like Koi, Spago and The Ivy – with the feast awaiting them at the Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony, Hollywood's elite will be counting themselves among the world's luckiest gourmands faster then you can say "Brown Derby."
For the main course, James Beard Award-winning chef – and mom – Suzanne Goin is offering slow-roasted salmon with yellow beets, spicy carrot salad and raita; grilled chicken breast with black rice, pea shoots and tangerine vinaigrette; and roasted root vegetables with quinoa and persimmon salsa.

For those herbivores among the 1,200 joining the SAGs for dinner, Goin is serving a vegetarian option: spicy carrot salad with yellow beets, cucumber, and black mustard seeds; roasted root vegetables with quinoa and persimmon salsa; and black-rice salad with English peas, pea shoots and tangerine vinaigrette.
