LA-based chef Wolfgang Puck again fed the world's biggest celebrities on Oscars night this year, cooking at the famous Governors Ball for an amazing 24th year in a row.
The Ball, which immediately follows the Academy Awards, now in its 90th year, is a chance for the assembled megastars to let their hair down after the marathon of the Awards themselves and in recent years has done away with the sit down meal to try and encourage more of a party spirit.
According to Food and Wine, the menu this year included a few classics such as Oscar-shaped cracker topped with smoked salmon and caviar, a black truffle chicken pot pie and a baked mac 'n' cheese, a few returning dishes from last year's menu, such as taro root tacos, and new dishes such as tartare of Miyazaki Wagyu topped with togarashi, a kind of Japanese spice mix, and twice baked potatoes, again topped with caviar. Take a look at some pics below.
By all accounts the pot pie and the mac 'n' cheese are particular favourites. It wasn't all smiles however, when Best Actress Frances McDormand temporarily had her award stolen from a table.
Wolfgang Puck wasn't the only famous chef in town however: Joan Roca was there to oversee El Celler de Can Roca's menu for Elton John's post-Oscars party in honour of the Elton John Aids Foundation.
