Executive Chef & Partner Eric Klein of Spago Las Vegas was a sous chef under Lee Hefter at the original Spago. He had his share of working pressure-packed Oscar nights there and at The Governors’ Ball. Eric has been the highly visible executive chef & partner on Spago Las Vegas in the Forum Shops since April of 2007.
Wolfgang Puck has been associated with serving food at the Oscars for 21 years. On Sunday, February 22nd Chef Eric hosted an Awards Night Party at Spago Las Vegas. The 7-course tasting menu is inspired by the cuisine (some 50 dishes) Chef Puck will be serving the same night at The Governors’ Ball at Hollywood & Highland.
One of the official desserts, an Apple Millefeuille with brown butter sauce and apple cider jelly, was on Chef Eric’s menu, too. Every lucky guest will leave with a special chocolate Oscar painted with edible gold (originally created by Chef Wolfgang’s former executive pastry chef, Sherry Yard.) The guests at the official Governors Ball in Hollywood receive the same coveted keepsake!
