Oscar Food: Hungry like the Wolf

In Hollywood terms, he’s almost as famous as the little gold man. Legendary chef Wolfgang Puck will once again weave his culinary magic over the annual post Oscar’s bash — the Governors Ball. So if you were joining the A-listers for the evening, what would you be eating?

Mini Kobe Burgers with Aged Cheddar and Remoulade; Wasabi Pea Crusted Crab Cake with Mango and Thai Basil; House Smoked Salmon, Potato Galette, Creme Fraiche and Baby Greens with Butler-passed Warm Brioche; Chicken Pot Pie with Yukon Gold Potatoes, Baby Heirloom Vegetables and Homemade Pastry Crust; and “L’Etoile de Oscar”—Baked Alaska with Espresso Glace, Guittard L’Etoile du Nord Chocolate Sorbet and Toasted Meringue.

A few other fun facts: the Governors Ball will host 1500 guests, attended to by 900 wait and 250 culinary staff. There will 1200 Bottles of Moët & Chandon Champagne, an 18 Piece all female orchestra and for the first time, Academy Award winners will be able to have their Oscar statuettes personalised with engraved nameplates at the Ball.

However — if you miss out on an actual award, fear not. You get to take home the traditional chocolate Oscar covered in 24 carat gold!

How do we get a ticket?!

I always thought it a bit odd that names aren't already on the Oscar statuettes. It is like "oh, Mildred, I've just added up how many winners we have this year. Can you get me 27 out of the basement and dust them off?"
