(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck)

Servings: Serves 4

Ingredients:

8 ounces elbow macaroni

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 1/2 cups milk

3 tablespoons finely chopped black truffle (optional)

1/2 medium white onion

1 bay leaf

10 ounces sharp aged white Cheddar, shredded

3 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded

1 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pinch cayenne

2 drops black winter truffle oil (optional)

1 cup fresh brioche or challah bread crumbs

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley

Thinly sliced fresh black truffles, for garnish (optional)

Steps:

Step One: Preheat oven to 350°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add macaroni and cook until al dente, tender but still chewy, about 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to lightly oiled baking pan. Set aside.

Step Two: While macaroni cooks, melt 3 tablespoons butter in a separate pot over low heat. Whisk in flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes.

Step Three: Add milk, chopped truffle, onion, and bay leaf to butter-flour mixture. Raise heat slightly and simmer for 10 minutes, until creamy, stirring regularly. Discard onion and bay leaf. Remove from heat.

Step Four: Stir in 3/4 of aged Cheddar along with other cheeses. Season with salt, black pepper, cayenne, and truffle oil if desired. Fold in macaroni. Pour into 2-quart casserole. Top with remaining Cheddar.

Step Five: Melt remaining butter in sauté pan. Add breadcrumbs and parsley. Toss to coat. Spread crumb mixture evenly over top of macaroni.

Step Six: Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven let stand for about 5 minutes. Top with shaved truffle, if desired, before serving.

MIXOLOGIST CHARLES JOLY alcoholic drink Oscars 4Chion Lifestyle b
The Epliogue

A great drink to serve at your party is The Epilogue. The inspiration is like a great movie, a memorable cocktail menu should be multidimensional. The Epilogue is a blend of decidedly warmer, richer flavors, playing off of the carefully aged notes in Tequila Don Julio Reposado. Hints of coffee, baking spices, anise and mellow oak wrap draw you in. The perfect, broad-shouldered sipper that showcases the versatility of aged tequila.

THE EPILOGUE

Ingredients:

1 1/4 ounces Tequila Don Julio Reposado

1/4 ounce Caffé Amaro

1/4 ounce Cocchi di Torino

Light barspoon of 2:1 Demerara Syrup

Long orange twist and fresh tarragon sprig for garnish

Preparation:

1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing

glass with ice. Stir to chill and dilute.

2. Pour over fresh ice into an Old Fashioned Glass.

3. Garnish with orange twist and a sprig of fresh tarragon.

Wolfgang Puck’s Oscars’® Governors Ball Recipe ~ Chicken Pot Pie

Wolfgang Puck’s Oscars’® Governors Ball Recipe ~ Chicken Pot Pie

Create Chicken Pot Pie just like the celebrities enjoy at Oscar’s® night. There is planning the menu, shopping, and creating all the wonderful dishes. Wolfgang Puck, catering service for the 90th Oscars® is busy as well preparing the food for the Governors Ball.

Puck a renowned Chef and works with CEO Carl Schuster, they continue to set the standard for culinary excellence at the Governors Ball.

He is staying true to using fish and seafood that is Watch compliant and locally sourced ingredients. They are coming from:

This year’s menu includes his famous Chicken Pot Pie. This will include 1,000 pounds Pasturebird chicken and 100 pounds carrots to feed the hungry celebrities. This is a simple recipe that will be a dish that is easy to create and serve individually.

CHICKEN POT PIE

(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck, adapted from “Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy,” Rutledge Hill Press, 2004)

Yield: Serves 4

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch chunks

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

1/2 pound organic red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 pound organic carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1 sprig thyme

1 bay leaf

1 cup white wine

2 cups organic chicken stock

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/4 cup dry sherry

1/2 cup shelled or frozen peas

Approximately 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, defrosted following package instructions

1 cage-free egg

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper, and toss in a mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of

the flour until evenly coated. In a large skillet over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add

the chicken pieces, reduce the heat slightly, and sauté, turning them occasionally, until light

golden and thoroughly cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the

chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter to the pan,

then add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and sauté until they begin to look glossy and bright, 2

to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, and bay

leaf, and sauté, just until the vegetables begin to color slightly, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Add the wine, turn up the heat, stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits,

and simmer until the liquid reduces by about half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and the

1 cup of cream. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer briskly until the

liquid reduces by about half again and is thick and creamy about 15 minutes. Remove the sprig

of thyme and the bay leaf. Stir in the reserved chicken pieces and the sherry. Stir together the butter

and remaining flour and stir this paste into the mixture. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer to 4 large individual ovenproof 2-cup soup bowls, 4 ramekins of the same size, or a 2-quart baking

dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is cold, at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make sure the puff pastry is no thicker than 1/4 inch. With

the tip of a sharp knife cut the pastry into 4 circles that will overhang the rim of the serving

bowls or ramekins by about half an inch; for a single large baking dish, cut 4 circles that will

cover its top, or use one large sheet.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and the remaining 1 tablespoon cream to make an egg

wash. Brush the tops and outsides of the rims of the bowls. Place the bowls, ramekins, or

baking dish on a baking tray and place the puff pastry circles on top, pressing them gently over

the sides of the dishes. Pierce the tops with the tip of a paring knife. Brush the top of the pastry

with egg wash. Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake until the filling is

bubbling hot and the pastry is a deep golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve hot.

Serve with this great non-alcoholic drink. The inspiration is every great hero needs a faithful sidekick. The drink offers a thoughtful combination of the vibrant hibiscus, fresh citrus and effervescent tonic complemented by an elegant garnish.
