Oscars 2015: What’s on the menu at the A-list after party?
Couture will be donned and acceptance speeches scribbled as Hollywood’s A-listers prepare for the 87th annual Academy Awards this weekend but scooping up those Oscar gongs can make for hungry work.
After slimming into designer tuxedos and stunning gowns in the weeks prior to Hollywood’s most anticipated ceremony, the movie stars will journey towards the Governor’s Ball where a feast worthy of entertainment’s most elite will be laid out before them.
Austrian chef Wolfgang Puck will cater the Oscars after party at the Hollywood and Highland Centre for the 21st time this Sunday and he and his team are preparing for the most elaborate spread yet.

Puck’s menu boasts more than two dozen savoury options which include luxurious lobster salad with artichokes and asparagus, baked potatoes with caviar and a vegan truffle risotto.
The menu will also offer up an A-list twist on the traditional BLT to include rich lobster meat, crispy bacon and tomatoes topped with a dollop of chive aioli.
Puck will also be whipping up chicken pot pies with black truffle which has been the most popular dish throughout his 21 year hold on the Oscar kitchen.
The dish is said to be a particular favourite of Barbara Streisand.
Celebrities who are left disappointed after the ceremony will have the opportunity to feed their sorrows at the extensive dessert table which will once again play host to a giant Oscar themed cake in the shape of a golden gong.
If that’s not enough to console the losers, they can also take to the bar which will be dishing out cocktails to quench the thirst after a tough night of clapping.
Post Oscar tipples include the Penicillin, a concoction made up of Johnnie Walker Black Label, ginger syrup and lemon juice and Blood and Sand, a drink which is made up of Johnnie Walker Black, sweet vermouth, orange juice, cherry liquor and orange peel.
No doubt the winners and commiserators will be clinking glasses of champagne as they toast to the most elaborate feast of the award season.
