One valuable ingredient vies to be a culinary star
Every year for the post-Oscars Governors Ball, celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck hunkers down to dream up an eccentric list of culinary choices for Academy Award nominees to sink their celebrity teeth into. And every year he seems to outdo himself.
This year, for instance, superstar nominees like Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and Meryl Streep tucked into lobster corn dogs before ordering custom fish dishes at a poke bowl station. There was even smoked salmon on statuette-shaped crackers. But the most cinematic snack on this year’s menu was the gold-dusted popcorn.
