When you’re feeding the biggest Hollywood movie stars on the planet, you pimp out mac and cheese with truffles and swap out chicken for fancier fowl with your Nashville hot fried quail.
That’s the menu strategy for chef Wolfgang Puck, who marks his 25th silver anniversary of hosting the Oscars Governors Ball party this year.
Puck and his army of 900 kitchen and serving staff will create more than 60 dishes ranging from one-bite hors d’oeuvres to small-plate entrees that will be tray-passed throughout the night.
Here’s a look at what the stars will be served on the biggest movie night of the year:
