For the 15th consecutive year, master chef Wolfgang Puck has been selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to create the menu for the Governors Ball, the celebration immediately following the 81st Academy Awards presentation.
“The Governors Ball is the highlight
of the season,” said Puck. “Our menu will have star-quality ingredients each dish showcasing the essence of seasonal flavor.
With locally grown, sustainable and organic ingredients, guests
will enjoy an award-worthy culinary experience.”
Wolfgang Puck Catering will be
serving the Academy’s 1,500 Ball guests, which will include Oscar winners, nominees, presenters and telecast participants.
The menu created by Puck and chefs Lee Hefter and Matt Bencivenga will feature several Ball favorites, including Tuna Tartare in Sesame Miso Cones; Chopped Chino Farms Vegetable Salad with Ginger Soy Vinaigrette, Maine Lobster and Caviar; and Pastry Chef Sherry Yard’s gold-dusted chocolate Oscars.
Working in a state-of-the-art kitchen adjacent to the Grand Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center, Puck will lead a team of chefs, pastry chefs and culinary artists who will be responsible for the cooking, presen-tation and execution of the menu.

Teamwork: Master Chef Wolfgang Puck and Pastry Chef Sherry Yard
A thumbs-up from the Chef!
Wolfgang Puck enjoys chatting to the media, no matter whether it's in English, German or French.
The Bento Box Dessert
is inspired by the single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine.
Each guest receives an edible, three-part Bento Box made entirely from Puck's own white (now colorized) chocolate. Once open, guests will find delicious surprise desserts in each of the three compartments.
Puck recalls, that on one
occasion, actress Charlize
Theron walked into the
Governors Ball kitchen to
personally thank him for
the delicious meal.
When asked, who his
favorite celebrity customer
was, Puck responds: "Actor Michael Caine" - Caine is in the restaurant business too
