KitchAnnette’s 2014 Oscar® Menu is here!

(Cue trumpets blaring)

I am pleased to announce the KitchAnnette 2014 Oscar® Menu! I am also amazed to share that this is my 20th year doing this – 20 YEARS! I can’t believe it. And to commemorate that anniversary, there’s a special surprise being finalized – stay tuned.

But until then, please enjoy this year’s rich, decadent, menu selections with each morphed into the movie posters based of the 9 Best Picture Academy Awards® Nominations.

Appetizers:

The movie: 12 Years A Slave. The dish: 12 Pears Enclaved…Pear slices wrapped with truffle cheese & baby arugula in prosciutto.

Yeah, some of them are “a stretch” – nothing new there! I’m thankful for many great suggestions but was directly inspired by Randi Ginsberg who’s thought of lobster bisque led to Cup’d in Phyll-ups, Stefanie Sanabria who nailed Philetmignon, and Alan DiStassio who put forth poached pears as 12 Pears Enclaved but I had a more savory approach. I would not have gotten it together without them! Honorable mentions to Gregg Zeidenberg, Daryl Cheang, Joe Becwar, and Laura Singer who kept the ideas coming steadily.

Recipes will be posted before the awards!
