A Cornucopia of Kitsch: Oscar Party 2010

Another successful Oscar Party brought the foodies out with their best work this year… I was impressed with the crafty signage, unique presentations, and overall nom-iness of the entries… see some highlights below and try not to drool on your keyboard.

Best Tasting went to Precious Avatart by Max. It had roasted red peppers, feta, chicken, spinach, and was overall incredibly awesome. Part-goers agreed it should be on the GoNomad Cafe menu.

Oscar Party 2010 - NINE cheese sammies

I made Nine Cheese Sammies with parmesan, asiago, cheddar, American, provolone, mozzarella, Neufchatel, Romano, and fontina. Thanks to Sargento for the six-cheese blend that made this even remotely possible.

Harry Potter and the Twice-baked Potato by Jenny, who made good use of pipe cleaners for her sign and thusly earned The Connelly – the entry that gets the most votes in all categories.

Harry Potter and the Half-nut Cookies, from the Confectionarium of Diva Galanis (points for double-film references!).

Inglorious Custerds by Joe, Best Name winner; but also actual homemade custards in individual porcelain bowls. Really quite impressive!

Sherlock Homestyle Potatoes by Nikki; I love her space-saving and attractive serving platter.

Sherlockopita Holmes by Teen, who is the two-time winner of the Most Creative Best in Show award. Sherlockopita Holmes featured an Oscar-esque statuette and a Polly Pocket impaled with a tiny knife. It’s the details that count.

This year’s awards were bamboo spoons and caramels in gold wrappers. Nothing fancy, but the reward is in the competition for most.
