The 86th Academy Awards is just days away. But this story is not about the Oscar winners, it’s about the feast that comes after the show, when guests from all over the world get to celebrate at a dazzling party.

Let’s face it, after sitting for almost four hours at the Oscar show, people are hungry. And it is at the Governors Ball where the real stars are the food, drinks and desserts.

"This year is a great celebration for us because it is our twentieth anniversary so we have been doing this for twenty years. This year we do the most popular dishes we did over the last twenty years and also some new dishes too. We have like our Chicken Pot Pie. We have our roasted salmon with black pepper and ginger. We have our chinois lobster. We have risotto with black truffles. We have some great pasta dishes; some wonderful rice noodles like some Chinese style rice noodles with vegetables for the vegan people; for the vegetarian people so there will be something for everybody," said Wolfgang Puck, the chef.

On the special night, desserts will add a sweet touch on the plate. These desserts are designed by a bevy of bakers from the Wolfgang Puck pastry chefs.

"These are strawberry cheesecake puffs with a little almond gold. These are various bon bons with different genache’s in them and here is a nutella with pretzel’s down here and here we have passion fruit marshmallows. So we kind of make it rich, fun and at the same time light and then down here we have the Marjolaine cake and that’s going to mimic the big cake that we make. You can just take a piece and enjoy the whole night," Jason Lemonnrer, the pastry chef, said.

The entire ball room will be able to hold 950 staff and 350 chefs. Cheryl Cecchetto, the producer of the Governor’s Ball revealed this year’s theme.

Event producer Cheryl Cecchetto said, "This came just because we have the stars in the room we thought why don’t we call it “stars under the stars” so it is exactly that. It’s an LED ceiling which – it looks like a very simple ceiling just pulled taught with LED lights but there’s two miles of material above that, two and a half miles of lights that are individually placed. It’s mind boggling."
