Chef Wolfgang Puck whipped up a special menu for the A-list nominees.

It's been 25 years since Chef Wolfgang Puck has been creating the special Oscars menu.

This year was no exception! From apple summer rolls, handmade vegan pasta, hot fried quail on red velvet waffles to sea urchin on eggless custard, golden champagne strawberry and cherry black forest cake, the menu was as fancy as one could imagine.

Here comes the food! 200 culinary staff and 850 service and support staff were at work to create the special menu for 1,500 guests.

A sweet treat! Strawberries dipped in white and rose chocolate. Don't they look delicious?

The dessert menu was fascinating with Oscar-inspired cookies and matcha cherry macarons.

Those who didn't win an award at least got their hands on this chocolate Oscar.
