Oscar party report: Inside events from Vanity Fair, Elton John, the Governors Ball and more
Biz Bash    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There was one thing that didn’t change significantly on Oscar night. There wasn't a major shake-up in importance of the biggest and most buzzed-about events: the Governors Ball hosted by the Academy after the show, Vanity Fair's viewing bash and the Elton John AIDS Foundation fundraiser. All three galas were back on the scene commanding their typical A-list attendance and frenzy of media attention (albeit with some format and venue changes). Some guests at these events also made their way to Madonna's well-known annual party, which this year was not co-hosted with Demi Moore, who has been tending to her own much-publicized issues. More

Photographers discuss ethics of special event photo use
Special Events    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There's only one way to share the beauty of a great special event with anyone who couldn't be there, and that's with photographs. But the explosion of social media — which is ever-more image-driven — can lead to unwelcome overexposure for event photographers. Today, photographers often find their event photos spreading throughout the Facebook-Twitter-Pinterest universe, which might bring more business or might be pointless because no photo credit is included.

Sea scallops in black tie
Zen Can Cook    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The best sea scallops are on the markets roughly at the same time with black truffles so it only makes sense that they appear together in the same dish. Scallops in black tie — a clever combination of scallops, black truffles, spinach and puff pastry — was made famous by Daniel Boulud back in the days he was the chef at Le Cirque. More

Chocolate and goat cheese cupcakes
Buttercream Blondie    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Meghan McGarry writes, "In order to dress up my chocolate cupcake, I decided I would incorporate goat cheese. I made a goat cheese frosting that is light and airy like a mousse. Light brown sugar in both the frosting and cupcake add a wonderful layer of flavor. That slight tang of the goat cheese frosting paired with the chocolate cupcake is a flavor combination that should not be missed!" More
