Okay, I know the Oscars are old news by now, but I had to share the impressive menu me and my friend Elana put together last week. We’re always looking for excuses to try out new recipes, whether it’s the Super Bowl, Mad Men or any awards show. This year we decided to really challenge ourselves and come up with a menu in theme with all of the best picture nominees. Not only were all of the dishes delicious, but the funny (and somewhat stretched) movie tie-ins made for some good laughs. From the bourbon punch to the french onion crostini, any of these recipes would be great for entertaining guests, regardless of the occasion.
The recipes we found were from two of my favorite blogs, Smitten Kitchen and Feed Me Phoebe. If you don’t already follow them, you definitely should! Click the links below to get the original recipes.
Bourbon Punch with Mint → Beasts of the Southern Wild
French Onion Crostini → Les Miserables + Amour
Black Bean Cakes with Cilantro-Lime Crema → Lincoln + Django Unchained
