A look at the menu for 2018's Oscars Governor's Ball.

The attendees at the Oscars were definitely in for a treat.

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck and his team prepared a scrumptious menu for the stars who attended the 2018 Oscars Governor's Ball at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The A-listers attending the post-Oscars event such as host Jimmy Kimmel, Nicole Kidman and Armie Hammer feasted on dishes like chicken pot pie, macaroni and cheese with truffles, eggplant confit with salsa verde, ravioli and risotto with shrimp.

Helping the 68-year-old chef were 300 people in the kitchen and 900 waiters in the dining room.

As for the leftovers, it was donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

'People who don't really get anything, they're going to have a meal just like the biggest stars in the world,' said the chef.

Take a look at the lavish spread.
