Super chef Wolfgang Puck has been pictured on several websites holding a tray of Oscar-shaped smoked salmon on toast hors d'oeuvres that evidently have already been scarfed down by the glitterati at events leading up to tonight's Oscars.
As in past years, Puck is overseeing a banquet for 1600 in Hollywood just after the show and his signature offering there will be chocolate Oscar-shaped delectations.
As for top Oscar-rated foodie scenes of 2004, we can only attest that "Ray" features the blind performer cooking up fried chicken in the dark, and wine-tasting is central to the film "Sideways." Waitressing evidently gets some play, both in "Sideways" and "Million Dollar Baby," where Hillary Swank takes home a partially eaten steak for dinner. "Vanity Fair" had a few dining room moments but what did anyone actually seem to be eating? " Only "Vera Drake" comes to mind as a movie where people sit down to eat together. Of course there's the documentary "SuperSize Me," a flick about a fellow eating McD offerings for 30 days that put me off eating altogether for days.
Any other foodie scenes from 2004 films, anyone?
