As per reports, the menu was curated by three talented female chefs - Lauren Von der Pool, Melissa King and Amirah Kassem.
If you haven’t been staying under a rock, you would know that the biggest fashion night and the party of the year, Met Gala, took place on May 2, 2022, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. And like every year, the Met Gala Red carpet highlights were trending on the internet. It is a high-profile event that every fashionista looks up to, as it brings together the most influential personalities from around the world under one roof. This year, the event was themed 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion', and it saw a star-studded guest list including Indian businesswoman Natasha Poonawalla, US socialite Kim Kardashian, actors Sophie Turner, Blake Lively, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Ryan Reynolds and Riz Ahmed and others. While the event was all about glitz and glamour, we got our hands on the special feast menu which was equally a lavish affair!
Vogue Runway took to its official Twitter handle to share the menu and table setting details, and as per its report, the menu was curated by three talented female chefs - Lauren Von der Pool, Melissa King and Amirah Kassem. While each of these three renowned chefs have their own diverse and unique genre of work, they got together to put forth a menu in sync with the theme, one that represents the evolution of American cuisine. And it was impressive to say the least.
Let's take a look at the Met Gala 2022 dinner menu:
Celebrity vegan chef, Lauren Von der Pool, was in charge of the appetisers. From a vegan version of deviled eggs (using Yukon potatoes instead of eggs and meat) and truffle potato bites to rice cakes and coconut ceviche, she whipped up quite a storm at the table.
On the other hand, Melissa took care of the main course, that included fresh Hamachi, drizzled with citrus, olive and Sichuan chilli - a dish that defines the amalgamation of cuisines.
Amirah curated the desserts, and prepared chocolate cakes, layered with either chocolate or cappuccino mouse. As per several reports, this particular dessert was reportedly homage to the night's dress code.
While this was all about the three main courses, the main entrée of the dinner party was prepared by celebrated chef Marcus Samuelsson, who handpicked Chef Lauren, Melissa and Amirah for the gala dinner. Chef Marcus prepared "a hearty dose of Americana", which included barbecue striploin with spring carrots, crispy rice, and cornbread crumble.
Well, just like the extravagant fashion at the gala dinner look, the feast too was super exotic; isn't it? What are your thoughts about the dinner menu? Let us know.
