LOS ANGELES, FEBRUARY 21, 2013
SOUNDBITE 1 Wolfgang Puck (man), celebrity chef (English, 24sec) [This is the 19th year that Wolfgang Puck has caterted the Governors Ball that follows the Oscars awards ceremony.]
"I think this year's going to be fun because we're going to have a party instead of a sit-down dinner. So, instead of having an appetizer, a main course and dessert, we're going to make 35 dishes! So, if you like potatoes with caviar, we have it. If you like chinois lambchops, we have it. If you want chicken pot pie, we have it. If you like Szechuan-style lobster, we have it. If you like fish, we have a great steamed fish…"
SOUNDBITE 2 Lauren Ashamalla (woman), Sequoia Productions [company which produces the Governors Ball] (English, 12 sec):
"This is Hollywood. There's gluten-free. It's sustainable. There's vegan. There's everything for every diet. [Journalist: So this is not a dangerous meal?] No. And there's plenty of champagne for the champagne dieters. [Laughs.]"
