I'm the Oscars chef – what goes into the A-listers' food from 1,700 salmon Oscars to 117 chefs preparing 100 lobsters

MILLIONS of people are fixated by what A-listers wear on the Oscars red carpet, but perhaps the most exciting part of the event happens behind closed doors.

This year, stars at LA’s Dolby Theatre will tuck into over 1,700 smoked salmon Oscars as part of the mouthwatering feast by Austrian-American Chef Wolfgang Puck.



Wolfgang has catered the Oscars for nearly 30 years and the evening takes meticulous planning.

Speaking to Fabulous, he said: “This year, the Governors Ball is going global with culinary influences from around the world.

“It's been wonderful for me to be a part of Hollywood's biggest night for the last 28 years.

“We started making our chocolates last week and have been doing prep since then.”
