For more than 20 years, Wolfgang Puck has been chef to the stars at Spago, his legendary restaurant in Beverly Hills. With designer Barbara Lazeroff, his wife and business partner, Puck has built what Fortune magazine calls "the world's most successful" restaurant empire. The Austrian-born Puck is credited with reviving California's culinary heritage, incorporating fresh California ingredients into his classical French training. He is the author of four cookbooks, the most recent being Pizza, Pasta and More! (Random House, 2000). Wolfgang and Barbara were the recipients of the James Beard Foundation's Humanitarian of the Year Award (1994), while Wolfgang has been honored by the foundation as Outstanding Chef (1998). The couple holds an annual Passover seder in their restaurant with proceeds going to MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger. They reside in Los Angeles with their two children.
