Behind the Scenes

"Fried up ALL the chicken on Sunday for the biggest, wildest night out in Hollywood! We joined a badass group of uber talented chefs to feed 600 hungry parties after the awards, and let’s just say that pizza, fried chicken, burgers and BBQ all go surprisingly well with tuxes and gowns. 🍗🌟🍕 Huge thanks to @jimmykimmel— everyone’s favorite celebrity foodie— for having us! We had a blast. 🙏🏼 📸 @gettyimages #Kimmel #spanishfriedchicken #chickenandtuxes"
