Celebrity vegans, and this year’s Oscar noms, like Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Joaquin Phoenix and at times Hugh Jackman, will be happy to know Wolfgang Puck is preparing a partly vegan-friendly meal for the 2013 Governors Ball.

At the official after party for the 85th Academy Awards, Puck is cooking up some delicious vegan dishes. The plant-based menu items include vegetable spring rolls, rosemary spiced nuts, edamame guacamole, Japanese baby peach salad, Chinese mustard dressing kale salad with grilled artichokes and lemon vinaigrette, lentils with cauliflower and baby vegetables, and for dessert shaved espresso ice.

This is the 19th year in a row Puck is cooking for the festivities. Reportedly, it takes 2,100 hours for preparation and setup. Luckily, the famous chef has help in the kitchen from 350 culinary staff members and 950 employees to work the Dolby Ballroom for the 1,500 people in attendance.

Wow, that’s a lot of prep! Get a glimpse of the menu here, and be sure to tune into this year’s Oscars on Sunday, Feb. 24 on ABC.
