Plan An Oscar-Themed Menu…courtesy of CookingLight
Why not share some movie-themed treats with your guests?
Fried Catfish with Hush Puppies and Tartar Sauce (as inspired by Beasts of the Southern Wild)?
The fiercest little girl you’ve ever seen, lead character Hushpuppy—a role which earned 9-year old Quvenzhané Wallis an Oscar nomination—goes on an unexpected journey after a devastating storm hits her home in Louisiana.
Mississippi Mud Pie (as inspired by Django Unchained)?
All is fair in love and war, at least as far as Django is concerned in this tale of slavery and heartbreak. In honor of his journey to Mississippi to rescue his wife, we deem this Mississippi Mud Pie to be the perfect dessert to celebrate such a wonderful film.
Apple-Toffee Hand Pies (as inspired by Lincoln)
Known for being a simple eater and avoiding foods with much frill, Lincoln enjoyed snacking on apples, and we love that these individual apple pies are simple, tasty, and easy to serve at a large Oscar gathering.
