The Oscars are upon us again! Here is our menu for tonight’s event:
1. The Theory of Everything- Black Hole Cocktail
In the Movie The Theory of Everything, Stephen Hawking’s character presents the theory that a black hole was responsible for the creation of the universe. Try this black hole cocktail as a nod to science, spirits, and the mystique of the movies.
2. Birdman- Bird’s Nest Cookies
Michael Keaton’s character tries to make a comeback and earn is spot in the industry as a serious actor. We think these delicious avian-inspired “bird’s nest cookie” treats will legitimize their spot on your menu.
3. Selma- Fried Chicken
In Selma, David Oyelowo gives the performance of a lifetime when he portrays Martin Luther King Jr. We are serving homemade fried chicken as a salute to the real Dr. King and his favorite dish.
4. American Sniper- American Flag Cake
American Sniper follows the story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. In the movie, Kyle feels that he needs to protect his country by joining the US military. Show your patriotism by making this cake.
5. Wild- S’mores Dip
Cheryl Strayed takes the journey of a lifetime after her divorce and mother’s death. The movie’s general outdoorsy vibe, makes us want to build a campfire and make some s’mores. Turn this camping classic into a party appetizer with this s’mores dip recipe.
6. Imitation Game: Imitation Crab and Cocktail Sauce.
Benedict Cumberbatch never disappoints. Whether it be playing the historical Alan Turing breaking Nazi codes in the Imitation Game, or even just adorably mispronouncing the word penguins, Cumberbatch always seems to woo us. Celebrate the name of the movie with an imitation crab cocktail garnished with real crab claws.
7. Gone Girl- Viennese Iced Coffee
In the movie Gone Girl, coffee on the beach is part of Ben Affleck’s alibi. As a nod to the chilly relationships of this film, we decided to serve Viennese iced coffee. Delicious!
8. Intersteller- Corn Risotto
In Interstellar, we quickly learn that earth can only produce corn! This is the start of the Sci-Fi adventure that is nominated for Best Original Music Score. Honor the crop that started it all with a sweet corn risotto recipe!
