We first introduced Chef Eric Klein to the listeners of the “SoCal Restaurant Show” when he was the high-profile Executive Chef and Partner of Spago Las Vegas in the Forum Shops. Later Chef Eric transitioned (with a major promotion) to Senior Vice President Culinary – Partner at Wolfgang Puck Catering based at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
Every year for over two-decades Wolfgang Puck Catering has had the honor and great responsibility of providing all celebratory food and beverage for the prestigious Governors Ball following the Academy Awards ceremony. This year the Oscars return to the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Sunday, March 27th. Between the Tray Passed items, Passed Small Plates, Passed Small Plate Sweets, Small Plate Stations, Sweets and the Cookies and Milk Bar 20,000 portions will be served to the A-List guests. New this year are three Small Plate Stations from the Bronx-based Ghetto Gastro including “Triple C’s” (Trading Places Cornbread, Crab, Caviar.)
Last year Wolfgang Puck catered the exclusive “Cocktail Party” version of the Oscars at the historic Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles. Nibbles and beverages were served (with proper pandemic protocols) in an outside patio during the ceremony.
They are the official caterers for the newly opened Academy Museum of Motion Pictures ($484 million) at Wilshire Blvd. and Fairfax Avenue on the Miracle Mile.
Chef Eric Klein takes a brief break from his busy kitchens to join us.
