Count Us in! Chef Wolfgang Puck and his team prepared a scrumptious menu for the stars attending the 2018 Oscars Governors Ball at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, March 4.
After the awards ceremony, A-list attendees such as host Jimmy Kimmel, Nicole Kidman and Armie Hammer will be offered foods including chicken pot pie, macaroni and cheese with truffles, eggplant confit with salsa verde, ravioli and risotto with shrimp.
“You won’t go home hungry!” Puck, 68, told Us Weekly exclusively on the red carpet. “We have 300 people in the kitchen. Thank God I am not alone! 900 waiters in the dining room. They make 7,000 mini chocolate Oscars.”
As for the cost of the wide-ranging menu? “We’ll find out tomorrow,” the restauranteur quipped.
Puck walked the red carpet with a chocolate tower and a few of his edible statuettes, which he showed off on TV during an interview with E! News’ Giuliana Rancic. He also explained that any leftovers will be donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. “People who don’t really get anything, they’re going to have a meal just like the biggest stars in the world,” he said.
This is Puck’s 24th consecutive year preparing the feast for the post-Oscars event.
The 2018 Oscars air on ABC Sunday, March 4, at 8 p.m. ET.
