Oscars 2014 – WOW! My 20th Academy Awards® viewing party was the best of them all (so far) made the more special with the release of my book, KitchAnnette™ Red Carpet Menus.
It was a GREAT SHOW! Ellen DeGeneres did a fabulous job.
My cocktail-creating cousin, Chris Plati, brought pear-infused gin and prosecco garnished with homemade candied lemon slices to complement the appetizers, although it complemented EVERYTHING! Another sexy cocktail was created by Nazario Bosco, who also used prosecco, but paired it with Aperol and fresh orange. So perfect with all the dishes too!
And the food… my 2014 menu, was really, really GOOD! The platters were emptied faster than the seat of the winners upon hearing their names!
Here’s the repast recap:
Nebraskorn: It had the perfect note of Romano flavor giving simple corn an elegant upgrade.
Herbs: This salad was the perfect refreshing note to prep the palate for the next course.
American Truffle: My mom Toni wanted to make this one for the big show and it was pure chocolate perfection in a little morsel.
I want to thank all of my guests, my happy helpers, and everyone who has been raving about KitchAnnette™ Red Carpet Menus. I am thrilled!!!
