For the fourteenth year in a row, Wolfgang Puck has been selected to create and cater the menu for the Governors Ball, the celebratory party that follows the Academy Awards. Puck will head a team of hand-picked chefs to cook, plate, and serve the 1,500 ball guests. Keeping up with the current trends in the culinary world, Puck states that the menu will highlight local ingredients. He said:
The Governors Ball is a singular event, and the food must be of equal caliber. Our menu will feature locally-grown, sustainable, and organic ingredients, providing guests with a culinary experience that will please even the most discerning of palates.
Among other delicious delicacies, Oscar-winners and A-List celebrities can look forward to Puck's minikobe burgers on brioche with sweet pickles and tuna tartare with wasabi aioli on togarashi toast.
