Oscars 2016: Wolfgang Puck's extravagant menu unveiled


While Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet and Alicia Vikander are all hopeful to be taking home the all-important Oscar at the upcoming Academy Awards, they won't be going home empty handed win or lose. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck has created 5,000 chocolate Oscar statuettes coated in 24-carat gold, so every guest knows how it feels to collect the coveted accolade.

That is not the only tasty treat they can expect on the night; Wolfgang has personally created the Oscars after-party menu for the 22nd year in a row, and has revealed just what it takes to feed Hollywood's biggest stars.

As for the food? They will be preparing and serving 1,300 farmed oysters, 10kg of farm-raised caviar, 300 Maine lobsters, 6,500 Oscar-shaped flatbreads and 2,400 bottles of Piper Heidsieck champagne.

Wolfgang explained: "We are going to top last year with delicious dishes, traditional ones that Adele and John Travolta love like the macaroni cheese with truffles and chicken pot pie, and then new additions like Alaskan king crab Chinese-style, lobster and vegetarian dishes like white grape almond gazpacho.

"There will be something for everyone."


Guests will enjoy doughnuts flamed with raspberry brandy and served with raspberry sauce

The desserts selection will include an assortment of chocolate-based treats such as brownies, cookies and chocolate mousse, while Wolfgang and his team have also introduced a new doughnut recipe, which are flamed with raspberry brandy and served with raspberry sauce.

The Governors Ball immediately follows the Oscars and will see award-winners, nominees, presenters and other Hollywood VIPs dine together in the Ray Dolby Ballroom on the top level of the Hollywood & Highland Center.
