We had a customer in today planning for her Oscar party. She is preparing 5 dishes, each inspired by one of the Best Picture nominees. For instance, she got some aged Gouda, Cheddar and Piave Vecchio in honor of Benjamin Button - she wanted something that aged well. For Milk, some San Francisco sourdough bread. Schnitzel for The Reader. Frosted cake for Frost/Nixon. Curry for Slumdog. She's gonna make her guests guess which movie goes with which. Cute idea!
A friend and I once had an Oscar party where we made pizzas from the Spago cookbook. It was a blast!
Whatever you're doing for the Oscars, we hope you celebrate in style. And we hope you'll stop in and let Taste help you on that front.
