LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Every type of musical genre is expected to be represented at the GRAMMY Awards as will a flavor for every palate.
During music’s biggest night, which airs on CBS Feb. 15, the food and drinks are expected to be flowing from morning to late in the night.
“It starts with the crew backstage, to the guests that come in for the show, and then we have VIP parties upstairs on the CVT, the city view terrace, so it starts early in the morning and it goes all night long,” said STAPLES Center executive chef Joseph Martin.
Martin said the spread includes 1,800 pieces of dessert, 1,200 bottles of wine, 990 pounds of beef tenderloin and the sushi usually disappears first, all 6,900 pieces of it.

“Sushi is one of the biggest hits, but this year we have oysters and king crab legs and shrimp, so I think that’s going to go really quickly,” he said.

“So, you feel like it’s 14,000 food critics coming through this building,” he said.
