The only way to end an event as epic as the Emmy Awards is with a glamorous, star-studded after-party. Post-show (the ceremony airs on ABC tonight at 8 p.m. ET), attendees will head to the Emmy Awards Governors Ball to enjoy a fabulous three-course dinner prepared by Patina Restaurant Group Master Chef and Founder Joachim Splichal, Executive Chef of Culinary Gregg Wiele, and Executive Pastry Chef Frania Mendivil.

In order to reflect the fête’s rustic, organic ambiance, Patina Catering worked closely with local foragers and farmers, creating an elevated, agriculturally driven menu. “Our vision for this year’s dinner extends beyond the plate; it begins with an intention to maintain the quality and integrity of the ingredients we have sourced from the farmers and foragers we rely on as partners and friends,” says Splichal. “As we honor the source, we pay homage to a new concept of luxury—we celebrate the true elegance of nature.”

For the full menu (and drool-worthy photos), read on below.
