If there is an event, I'd like to attend in person at least once in real life, it will have to be the Oscars. From what I've seen on TV and in the news, it always looks like one big party that continues through the night even after the award ceremony. And while it's true I'd like to meet a few actors (though I can envision myself, entering into a momentary paralysis while being starstruck from the glam) I've always wondered about the food. They always have something interesting and tasty to eat. I remember reading somewhere once, that they had 9 different menus for the night!
Now while, I think 9 separate menus might surely be overkill to entertain at home, this menu I've created for Pottery Barn (Recipes in link) is simple yet pretty delicious and glamorous!
Here's what I'm serving on my Oscar menu this Sunday:
Start with this Apple Cider Hibiscus Ginger Cocktail made with champagne.
For small nibbles choose between or make both; Cannellini Bean and Blood Orange Crostini and/or Ancho Chili and Coriander Steak Crostini with Horseradish Mayonnaise.
And For dessert, this dark chocolate raspberry cake with a chocolate ganache frosting.
And now with our plates and glasses full, we can all focus on who is going to win!!!
