The 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony is set to take place on March 2nd, and this star studded event is sure to produce the glitz and glam we all look forward to watching. But the party doesn’t end after the ceremony closes.

The official Oscars after-party, The Governor’s Ball, will be held in the Ray Dolby Ballroom on the top level of the Hollywood & Highland Center and will be the place where success is celebrated and wining and dining is commenced.

Wolfgang Puck, the mastermind behind the Governor’s Ball menu, is cooking up the usual omnivorous fare this year, including fancy versions of simple comfort food classics like chicken pot pie, macaroni and cheese and roasted potatoes. But thanks to several vegan celebrities taking plant-based living to the mainstream, there will once again be vegan/vegetarian options for plant-based attendees and nominees, like Jared Leto, to enjoy.

Wolfgang Puck said about the magnificent feast he planned, “We have risotto with black truffles. We have some great pasta dishes; some wonderful rice noodles like some Chinese style rice noodles with vegetables for the vegan people; for the vegetarian people so there will be something FOR everybody.”

It’s great to see vegan and vegetarian lifestyles being honored as well as great creative minds and artistic performances this year, and we wish all of the nominees the best of luck on March 2nd.
