Celebs attending the Governors Ball following this year's Oscars awards will be able to choose from a variety of vegan menu options, from Bao Buns to tacos.


The Governors Ball menu has been revealed, and it features more than 15 vegan options.

Known as the official Oscars afterparty, the celeb-studded event will take place straight after the awards ceremony on March 12, attracting around 1,5000 guests.

Curated by renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, the banquet boasts an array of plant-based options for stars to enjoy.

In an interview with Good Morning America, Puck showcased the full menu, which consists of hors d’oeuvres, small plates, snacks and vegan desserts.

Vegan at the Oscars after party

Back in 2020, acclaimed actor Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly ordered a fully vegan meal for the Governors Ball.

Speaking to Hollywood Life about the upcoming Oscars party that year, Puck said: “I did the SAG Awards and Leo said, ‘What can you give me, something vegan?’

“He wanted vegan. We made a vegan pizza. He ate it so fast. He said, ‘Oh, can you bring another one?”… We’ll have it on deck on Sunday, for sure.”

However, Puck insists plant-based food at the event is nothing new.

“We always had vegan dishes,” the chef said. “We just never told anybody. We didn’t say, ‘Oh, we do vegan dishes’. We always had them.

“I never told anybody we do farm to table… Did I tell anybody? No. I just said it’s normal to get the best ingredients.”
