Wolfgang Puck created the dishes, which include grilled filet mignon, miso-glazed wild salmon and melted kale and faro salad.

Many of Hollywood's biggest film and TV stars will honor their own at Saturday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The show, which takes place at the Shrine Auditorium's Exposition Center in Los Angeles, is actually a sit-down dinner where the stars dine while the awards are handed out.
