Last year I pondered the following question: ‘What if they gave an Oscar to food?’ This time around I’m in Oregon, so any musing on that and all the other Hollywood hullabaloo unfurls with the red carpet around 3PM. So after sitting though the marathon of “interesting” fashion choices, multiple mothers/wives/partners/agents/5th grade teachers thanking, and awkward camera zooms on those whose name the envelop didn’t contain, I’ll still have time to catch up on Shameless. That perk aside, I’m going to have to figure out how to fill 5 hours with food. I’m guessing so are some of you, and to that end, I’ve included a few nominations of nibbles below.
So settle in, get those Oscar bingo cards ready, and enjoy the annual parade of tinsel and stars!
- Black Pepper Nuts
- Balsamic and Herb Candied Pecans
- Wild mushroom Tart
- Smoked-Trout Pate with Pita Crisps
- Savory Fennel Parmesan Biscotti
- Garlicky Cannellini Bean Dip
- Cream Cheese and Guava Empanadas
