Wolfgang Puck to Wow Celebs at 30th Annual Oscars Governor’s Ball with Luxurious Feast

Chef Discusses His Three-Decade Legacy and Teases Decadent Desserts at the Oscars

Chef and restauranteur Wolfgang Puck will serve a lavish meal at the Academy Awards Governor’s Ball this Sunday. 2024 marks the 30th year of Puck creating the menu and his catering company serving the attendees of the Governor’s Ball.

In an interview on ABC 7 Eyewitness News at an Oscar event, Puck discussed his longevity in this role. He said, “It’s a great thing to do it for 30 years. “When I look back at my life and my career, I said, ‘You know, longevity is really the most important thing.’ Why? Because a lot of restaurants come and go, but very few stay on.”

Puck’s Governor’s Ball menus are known for their opulent desserts, and this year is no exception. Each diner will be presented with a mini-Oscar statuette covered with 24-karat gold. Executive Pastry Chef Ellen Maloney stated, as quoted by ABC 7, “We really kind of combined and married a lot of really fun, unique ideas to really make this ‘our Oscars,’ if that makes sense.”

Fans of the Governor’s Ball potpies need not worry; they will definitely be served. The entire menu is available here.
