Glamour and talent will glide down the red carpet this weekend at the 2018 Academy Awards. As the winners await their golden Oscar, a team of 300 trained chefs will be preparing the finest cuisine for the after party, also known as the Governors Ball.
Led by upbeat personality and internationally renowned chef, Wolfgang Puck, the after party feast will feature a menu of over 60 dishes, including a mountain of caviar, lobster and scallops topped with 24K gold, A5 grade Miyazaki wagyu beef, golden potatoes, mac ‘n cheese topped with truffles, chicken pot pie and beautifully plated dishes that will match the celebrity shimmer and shine.
Expect bright lychee-rose raspberry tarts (below), otherworldly mocha beehives, and thousands of Oscar statue chocolates.
OSCAR MENU IN NUMBERS:
130 Kilos of wagyu beef
150 Kilos of smoked salmon
950 Waiters and staff
400 House made pizzas
4,500 Handmade Agnolotti (similar to ravioli)
1000 Artisan chocolate bonbons
13.5 Kilos of gold dust
And just for good measure over 12,000 glasses of champagne. Cheers!
