A Sneak Peek at Wolfgang Puck’s Star-Studded Oscars Party Menu
The most anticipated moment of the Oscars of course, is when the Best Picture winner is revealed, but for red carpet celebrities, it’s all about that after-party. Arguably one of the most-anticipated “it” after-parties of the night is the Governors Ball, a swanky soirée catered by Wolfgang Puck. This is chef Puck’s 21st year catering the party, and he is going all-out with the menu this year, with more than two dozen savory dishes, including giant seafood spreads and baked potatoes topped with scoops of caviar.
The after-party will take place after the last statuette is given out on February 22 at the nearby Ray Dolby Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center. Menu highlights include chicken pot pie with black truffles; a lobster salad with artichokes, asparagus, fava beans, baby beets, and citrus vinaigrette; a lobster BLT with bacon, tomatoes and chive aioli; and a raw bar. For dessert, there will be the traditional Oscar statuette-shaped treat (a coffee-flavored lollipop), white chocolate cream and strawberry push pops, and bittersweet chocolate cupcakes topped with marshmallow frosting.
Of course, there will be specialty cocktails to quench the thirst of A-listers, like the Penicillin (made with Johnnie Walker Black Label, ginger syrup, and lemon juice), and the Blood & Sand (also made with Johnnie walker black, Sweet Vermouth, orange juice, cherry liquor, and orange peel).
