Oscar Party Menu - Photo Collage of 6 Dishes

America’s biggest movie event – the Academy Awards – is just around the corner! I love watching the awards, starting with the red carpet arrivals. It makes for several hours of TV viewing, and no one wants to miss a moment by breaking away to eat a meal. So, I came up with this grazing menu of finger foods and small dishes that friends and family can nibble on throughout the broadcast. Whether you’re hosting an intimate evening with family or rolling out the red carpet in a formal affair, I’m pleased to share this “award-winning” menu!
