As per a report by Vogue, guests at the Met Gala 2023 were served up a menu inspired by legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. Created by caterer Olivier Cheng, the dishes were picked from some of Lagarfeld's personal favourites that he had served at a dinner at home in 1978. There was a Chilled Spring Pea Soup with Baby Vegetables, Lemon Creme Fraiche and Truffle Snow. This was followed up by another one of his favourites - the Ora King Salmon with Vegetable Nage, Asparagus and Pickled Strawberry Radish. Plenty of wine and Diet Coke were also said to be served at the event.
A number of Twitter users criticised the paltry meal at Met Gala. In spite of the ticket price and the A-lister celebrities attending it, they felt that the food was not paid enough attention to. Twitter users felt that the meal was not befitting a grand fashion event of this scale.
