Awards season came to a close with the Oscars on Sunday evening, and the A-list nominees including Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were in for a treat with the food and drink on offer. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck has once again created a menu filled with delicious new treats and old favourites, including the chicken pot pie that is raved about by past attendees.
Dishes including crab devilled eggs, spicy ranch popcorn and crostini with New York steak and chimichurri serve as the amuse bouche, while staff will bring around a selection of Hors d’Oueres such as Wolfgang Puck signature pizzas, spicy tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, and smoked salmon Oscars matzo.
Wolfgang Puck has created the Oscars menu for the 25th year
Sushi fans could pay a visit to the raw bar, where everything from scallop ceviche to made-to-order Nigiri. Meanwhile, a selection of hot and cold small plates were sure to be a hit with the guests including Olivia Colman and Richard E. Grant. But it was the desserts and sweet treats that were the pièce de résistance; Hollywood’s biggest stars got served a selection of cookies, macarons and chocolate dipped strawberries. And even if they weren't lucky enough to win big on the night, at least they got their hands on a 24 carat dusted chocolate Oscar.

Meanwhile, vegan guests weren't left out either. Red velvet whoopie pies, cashew vanilla tiramisu and chocolate and sea salt cookies were among the desserts on offer for stars who follow a plant-based diet.
The chef and his team will create food for 1,500 guests
There were 200 culinary staff in the kitchen on the day, along with 850 service and support staff. With a whopping 13,000 glasses, 4,800 small plates and 6,000 cocktail forks brought in especially for the occasion, we don’t envy whoever lands the job of washing up afterwards!
