The 96th edition of the Oscars, the big night of cinema, is approaching and all the details of the magical evening are being revealed, such as what will be eaten at the gala’s after-party. Once again this year, the food will be provided by veteran chef Wolfgang Puck. His extensive catering team has prepared a special menu for the Governors Ball that will include a wide variety of dishes.

For this occasion, Wolfgang has also teamed up with Bronx-based culinary collective Ghetto Gastro, which fuses food, fashion, music, art and design, leveraging African roots, with hip-hop and a lot of empowerment. And in order to accommodate the more than 1,600 guests, 120 chefs will be cooking for all the guests. The pastry section will be led by Kamel Guechida and Garry Larduinat.

World appetizers, sweets and tequila

At the party there will be different stations with food and drinks. The menu will include new and imaginative dishes from Wolfgang Puck Catering with some classics, such as smoked salmon Oscars, spicy tuna cones or tater tots with caviar. Once again this year, the Austrian chef is also adding a Spanish touch with the inclusion of Cinco Jotas Iberian ham, one of his favorites, which was already present on another occasion, along with paella.

On the appetizer trays, guests can also enjoy mini Wagyu burgers, tuna tartar, or vegan alternatives such as crispy sweet potato with kimchi, stuffed cauliflower with coconut charcoal. The chef does not forget other typical dishes from around the world such as fish and chips, a Yorkshire pudding stuffed with Wagyu beef, horseradish sauce and watercress. Chocolate Oscar statuettes, yuzu and coconut cake or raspberry and almond panna cotta will also add a sweet touch.

As for the liquid part, the mixology will be in charge of the Mexican Israel Baron and will focus on the most popular distillate of his country: tequila.
