Whether you love the movies, enjoy stargazing or are just looking for an excuse for a party, this is your weekend!
Spot lights and drum roll please … it’s time for an Oscar Bash. Not sure what to serve? I’ve put together two menus for you. Today it’s a Melting Pot Tapas Party. Alternatively, click here for a Paris Bistro Supper.
Whether you cook up everything yourself or make it a potluck, tapas are a great choice. Between the Red Carpet pre-shows and the award spectacular, a long, lazy evening with lots of small plates will be fun and delicious. Tapas are perfect for Oscar night.
From little Italy to Chinatown and beyond … here are a few ideas for a stellar cast for your melting pot production of East Meets West with a Side of Salsa.
And now for the nibbles!
Grilled Antipasto combines grilled veggies with some nuts, olives and a few great cheeses. Unless you prefer a hearty dip for fresh veggies and pita chips? Baba Ganoush would be perfect. Or maybe a chunky spread like Caponata.
It’s always good to have a warm dish or two to pass. Flatbread with Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions & Spinach, Spanakopita Triangles or Mediterranean Shrimp are all good choices.
Spice up the evening with a game or two! While the stars strut their stuff on the Red Carpet, let everyone make their best guesses for this year’s winners. Top score wins! Maybe you’d rather play Oscar Bingo? Instead of B12 and N47, it’s a presenter wears a yellow dress and Billy Crystal dances.

… and that’s all folks! Have fun, enjoy the Oscars and bon appétit!
