How Food52 Does Oscars

February 25, 2011

For fun, we found 10 killer recipes we thought embodied this year's Best Picture nominees, in consultation with our videographer Elena Parker (who's actually seen all the films). Should they be served together? Probably not. For things you'd actually want to eat together, check out these 15 Classy Oscar Snacks.

The King's Speech
127 Hours
Mom's Flapjacks
Toy Story 3
Winter's Bone
DISCLAIMER: This recipe has not been tested. But it has been giggled at. A lot.

See what other Food52 readers are saying.

Given that I'm a huge fan of Danny Woodrell I probably should have come up with a recipe for West Table, MO Methcakes. Go see "Winter's Bone", but read the book first. Dan's a really nice guy and he's a writer that other writers read.

Seriously. WHEN is the party? Everything (except the squirrel) looks awesome (but that's hilarious!)

I STILL totally crack up when I see MrsL's BBQ Flying Squirrel recipe!!!!

OMG. I'm slightly embarrassed that thing will be floating around here for eternity...but I'm glad it still gives people chuckles. :) What is Winter's Bone? Must go google now.

Baltimore, MD - 7:00 PM. I'm making the white bean dip with caramelized onions that Amanda made a few weeks ago. I'm waiting for a Food52 "best jalapeno recipe" - the stuffed jalapenos rock!
