The name Wolfgang Puck is synonymous with the best hospitality in restaurants and the highest standards in all areas of the culinary art. The famous chef created the brand, to which three companies belong: Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, Wolfgang Puck Catering and Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc.
Wolfgang Park was born in Austria and started cooking with his mother at an early age. The cook herself encouraged Wolfgang and inspired him with her passion for food. So determined and so curious to learn, he began his studies at the age of fourteen. As a young chef, he has worked in some of France’s largest restaurants, including Maxim’s in Paris, the Hôtel de Paris in Monaco and the 2-star Michelin restaurant L’Oustau de Baumanière in Provence.
At the age of 24, Wolfgang followed his friend’s advice and left Europe for the United States. His first job was in restaurant La Tour in Indianapolis, where he worked from 1973 to 1975. In 1975 Wolfgang arrived in Los Angeles and as head of a house in West Hollywood, he soon attracted the attention of the Hollywood elite. He had an innate understanding of the potential of Californian cuisine and played an important role in highlighting it in the late 1970s.
After leaving Ma Maison, Wolfgang opened his first flagship restaurant, Spago, in 1982. Located on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, Spago was an instant success and a culinary phenomenon. Wolfgang and Spago have received numerous awards during their eighteen year careers in West Hollywood, including the prestigious James Beard Foundation Award for Chef of the Year in 1991 and 1998 and the James Beard Foundation Award for Restaurant of the Year in 1994. Wolfgang is the only chef who has received the award for Best Chef of the Year several times.
