Los Angeles: To celebrate the Sarajevo premiere of her Bosnian war drama 'In the Land of Blood and Honey', Angelina Jolie threw a lavish dinner with partner Brad Pitt at her side.

The actress-turned-director, 36, hosted about 30 people who worked on the film at Zetra Sports Hall, where the local film premiere took place; about 200 guests noshed on finger food during an earlier reception.

The dinner menu, prepared by the staff at the Bristol Hotel (where the superstar couple stayed), was sumptuous: bruschetta with chicken liver pate; red trout fillet with black and red rice and fennel; veal filet with three kind of herbs; kadun butic (a traditional Bosnian dish featuring three types of minced meat on a cinnamon stick), and a dessert trio of hazelnut cremino, raspberry cheese cake and tartufo nero.

Jolie and Pitt, 48, paid their compliments to the staff; "they thanked them for wonderful hospitality and tasty food. Jolie tasted a little bit of everything," said a staffer.

In the 'Land of Blood and Honey' actor Fedja Stukan (who dined at Pitt and Jolie's table) gushed about the meal via the hotel Bristol's Facebook page: "I must admit that I never had better tasting food! Angelina and Brad agreed with me."
