Are you planning an Oscar-viewing party this year? With these delicious and tasty recipes, you can host your own Governors Ball.
Wolfgang Puck will be serving two salmon hors d'oeuvres: smoked salmon "Oscars" with dill crème fraiche and caviar as well as smoked salmon "pizza" cones. Quick, easy and savory, guests will love how much flavor these salmon pinwheel appetizers pack.
For dessert, the Governors Ball menu features yuzu-lemon bars. For entertaining at home, this no-bake raspberry-lemon bar option is quite possibly one of the easiest treats to prepare. Just make sure you whip them up in the morning so they have time to refrigerate and set.
Another dessert you may want to make in advance only requires three ingredients! Coat these dark chocolate truffles in shaved almonds or nuts of your choice and serve them with toothpicks. These make great treats in place of Puck's violet velvet truffles.
The Oscars are right around the corner, and if you are playing host, consider a menu based on the food at this year's Governors Ball, a celebration after the Oscars. The Governors Ball menu, created by Wolfgang Puck with Chef Matt Bencivenga, features appetizers like duck wontons, small plates such as chicken pot pie with black truffles and baked potato and caviar, sushi and desserts including huckleberry macarons.
