The EJAF's Academy Awards Viewing Party will take place at the newly redesigned West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles.

Celebrity chef Cat Cora, supported by Crumble Catering, will prepare an exquisite 5-course meal for guests that will include sesame encrusted lamb meatballs with harissa yogurt, sauteed sea bass with lemon couscous and piquillo pepper saffron sauce, and chocolate budino with whipped cream and fresh berries. Cat Cora made television history when she became the first and only female Iron Chef on the Food Network's Iron Chef America. She has authored three top-selling cookbooks, and launched three restaurants, including Cat Cora's Kitchen, which opened in April 2012.
