Curio: Oscar Party Food Postmortem

Alexa here. I just had to follow up my Oscar cupcake post and Nathaniel's Bad Blake pee with more Oscar party food. Apparently the Academy's New York viewing party was pathetic, but I still wish I could have seen the The Hurt Locker foie gras bomb and the District 9 prawn extraterrestrials that were served. Here are a few more ideas:

At our little soiree we had a Crazy Heart pizza.
(Yup, that's a cowboy hat and boots made from ham steak.)

And the best dessert ideas were all at Cakespy, including these Avatarts.
(See
many more here).

Please share more about your Serious Naan, White Ribbon pasta and Steve Martinis in the comments.

Thanks to Inglourious Basterds for making the swastika fashionable once again.

We were about half and half about what came first, the pun or the recipe. But for the most part, we didn't eat anything that our guests brought until we came up with a pun for it. From what I remember:

- An Eggucation (deviled eggs)
- An Edumame (Edamame)
- Avatarcado Relish (Guac with apples and blue food coloring)
- The Brownie Side
- Coco avant Pretzels (Chocolate covered pretzels)
- Crazy Liver (Chicken Liver Pate)
- Crazy Tarts
- Ginvictus
- Harry Pottered Rum
- The Hurt Lager
- The Hurt Latkas
- Inglorious Basil Pesto
- Inglorious Bas-tarts
- The Princess and the Frog Legs
- A Serious Amount of Cheese Balls
- Tuna Avatartar
- UPside Down Cake

A Single Malt. Yes, there was only one. The one who got the most predictions correct won it.
