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.”
Like many people, celebrities around the world are choosing compassion and going vegan. Find out which stars are vegan in our guide to vegan celebrities.
