Many celebrities have gone vegan or vegetarian. The meal for the 2020 Governors Ball following the Oscars ceremony will follow the celebrities’ diet. HollywoodLife.com spoke only to Chef Wolfgang Puck, who is in charge of this year’s menu. “Well, we always had vegan dishes. We 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 said it’s normal to get the best ingredients,” the chef explained.
As for what Wolgang prefers, “I always love pasta, so it’s simple to make a great vegan dish with pasta. We’ve got a mushroom. We have beautiful truffles, so we always get ready for everything. So, if somebody wants something special, we can make it because we have 200 chefs in the kitchen and 600 waiters,” he continued. That’s got to be a relief for the carnivores at the event who would still like a big steak instead of vegan and plant-based fare.
Wolfgang isn’t sure about Brad Pitt’s choices. The actor is close to winning Best Supporting Actor for his work in Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. But Wolfgang knows what Pitt’s co-star and Best Actor nominee Leonardo Di Caprio will want to order. Wolfgang said: “We’ll see what he (Brad) loves. But, I did the SAG Awards and Leo DiCaprio 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.” That’s good news for Leo!
