Leonardo DiCaprio, Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper and their fellow Oscar nominees will enjoy spicy tuna tartare, smoked salmon Oscars and white bean quinoa cakes at the official Academy Awards after party.

The 1,500 guests at the Governors Ball will be fed a variety of vegan and vegetarian treats, as well as 1,300 farmed oysters, five kilos of American farm-raised caviar and 1,250 stone crab claws.

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck revealed the selection of tasty treats he will give to the Oscar winners and losers, as well as industry insiders, at the exclusive party.

The ball will have a nature theme and take place under a night sky canopy as the stars enjoy cocktails including the Blood and Sand, the Coco Light martini and the Baileys Glamour Shot.

Celebrities with a sweet tooth will snack on strawberry consomme, angel food cake and olive oil sorbet, as well as carrot cake, chocolate dipped strawberry cheesecake pops and 5,000 traditional chocolate Oscars.

Wolfgang showed off his menu as he celebrates two decades of catering the glittering party.

He said: "This year we are going to do some of the dishes which have been favourites of the movie stars over the last 20 years.

"It will be like the best of Wolfgang. We are doing the dishes from the chicken pot pie and potatoes with caviar and macaroni and cheese, which are real comfort foods, to the sushi and yellowtail sashimi, king crabs and lobster.

"There will be something for everybody."

The Oscars take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 2.

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
