Get out the tuxedos and party dresses! It's Oscar time again and time to see who will win this year's Academy Awards and eternal fame. After the Oscars, the celebrities and their guests will attend the Governors Ball, the official Oscars afterparty. Instead of just sitting around the television at home, get dressed up and host your own Oscar party. Here is a collection of recipes for a number of the very same dishes that will be served at the Hollywood bash (created by Chef Wolfgang Puck).
This is a signature appetizer of Chef Wolfgang Puck - one he always serves at the Academy Awards' Governors Ball. Sushi grade tuna is mixed with wasabi, pickled ginger, and a spicy chili mayonnaise then served in a baked miso cone.
Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious! This is especially true with good caviar. Perfectly cooked potatoes and a dollop of crème fraîche pair beautifully with the salty magic bite of the caviar.
The marinade and sauce in this recipe has a very Asian flair with scallions, chili flakes, peanut oil and rice wine vinegar. It adds a very nice flavor to the meat. A crisp salad dressed with cilantro mint vinaigrette adds a nice balance to the lamb.
They sound fancy and celebrities love to snack on them, but in reality it's quite simple to prepare these miniature burgers. The key to great taste is to buy the best ground beef you can find.
Mac and cheese for grown ups! Three kinds of cheese - white cheddar, Gruyère, and Parmesan with brioche bread crumbs and black truffles. If you don't want to splurge on the truffles, just add a touch of truffle oil. It'll still be delicious.
Edamame (steamed soybeans) adds a nice flavor twist to traditional guacamole as well as creating a lighter texture. Serve with some warm tortilla chips or fresh vegetable crudités.
Only 3 simple ingredients create this very delicious hors d'oeuvres. Sticky, rich dates are stuffed with quality Parmesan cheese, wrapped with smokey bacon and baked to perfection. Amazing!
Moët & Chandon is the official champagne of the Academy Awards. This delicious cocktail combines fine champagne with the flavors of passion fruit and vanilla.
Tequila is not just for margaritas. This amazing concoction was dreamed up by Patrón’s Ed Blinn and Chef Wolfgang Puck. Patrón Silver Tequila is mixed with Patrón Citronge Orange Liqueur and two kinds of fruit juice - orange and blackberry.
This is a very tasty vodka cocktail that was created for the Oscars - vodka and Patrón Citrónge Orange Liqueur are shaken together with blueberry and mango juices. Delicious!
