The Birthday Dinner Oprah Threw Gayle King Has Us Rethinking This Whole New Year’s Cleanse Thing
Oprah Winfrey has been known to throw an exquisite party. Her BFF Gayle King’s 63rd birthday soiree was no different.
The A Wrinkle in Time star hosted King and ten friends for a lavish dinner in Maui, Hawaii, on Friday, and the menu was so deliciously extravagant we fear our New Year’s juice cleanse is in grave danger.
Queen O shared an Instagram video of the drool-worthy birthday dishes and joked they were “almost Weight Watchers–approved.”
We won’t get into the full menu because we’re hungry enough. But let’s just say it included “Gayle’s favorite,” Dover sole meunière (whatever that is), and short ribs that King says are “melt-in-your-mouth good” in the video. The coup de grâce was truffle au gratin cauliflower.
For dessert, Oprah whipped up an enormous yellow cake and belted her heart out.
As the saying goes: Ain’t no dinner party like an Oprah Winfrey dinner party, especially when truffles are involved.
