From Cillian Murphy winning the Oscar for Oppenheimer to celebrities putting their best foot forward for the red carpet, the annual gala event is currently making headlines. The Academy Awards are annually bestowed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) in the United States to films, actors, directors, musicians, and everyone associated with the best work of motion pictures. An event of this scale cannot happen without serving guests with sumptuous dishes on the menu. For the 96th Academy Awards, Wolfgang Puck, the renowned Australian-American restaurateur, and Elliot Grover, a London-based chef, reunited to curate the menu this year.

While the celebs eagerly waited to be recognised at the most prestigious annual award event, the two chefs had prepared a surprise for their taste buds. Wolfgang Puck cooked 30th time for this event, while it was the second time that Elliott Grover cooked for one of the best nights of Hollywood. It might not be possible for every celeb to take home the prestigious award, but the chefs ensured that every celeb enjoyed the menu and had the best time at Oscars 2024.

From delicate desserts to succulent meat-based delicacies, the chefs left no stone unturned to make this event a hit. After a night of presenting awards and fiery performances, the celebs had the best time gorging on the delicious menu catering to various dietary preferences, vegan, vegetarian, and non-vegetarian.
