Peep Wolfgang Puck’s Complete Oscars Party Grocery List: 20 Pounds Of Truffles, Edible Gold Dust & More

Wolfgang Puck and company are busily prepping dishes for tonight’s 1500-guest Governor’s Ball, which will take place after the Academy Awards. Interestingly, there’s a 1:1 ratio of guests attending to bottles of champagne being served; celebrating and commiserating will be conducted in equal parts. The big buzz surrounding this year’s menu is, of course, the high volume of vegan dishes available.
