Wolfgang Puck is here to make sure no one at the Oscars ever goes hungry — even before the awards start!
The celebrity chef — who is famously in charge of the extravagant Governors Ball menu following the awards show each year — brought his sons, Byron, 21, Alexander, 10, and Oliver, 9, along with him on the red carpet to hand out sweet and savory treats to reporters and fellow attendees.
In addition to gold-dusted mini chocolate replicas of the coveted Oscar statue, the Puck clan brought along 1,800 pieces of sushi, chicken pot pie, king crabs, potatoes and caviar, and lobster.
And how did the kids help out with the menu? “I helped peel the carrots,” Alexander said, while Oliver took charge of the chicken pot pies — proving the cooking gene truly does run in the family.
This was just a small taste of what the stars will be feasting on after the show, with a 2,600 lb. raw seafood bar and a 5-gallon homemade hot fudge chocolate fountain (among many other of Puck’s signature treats) expected at the Governors’ Ball.
“Meet me in the kitchen [afterwards] we’ll have a little caviar and a little black truffle,” Puck told Seacrest. Just another perk of being a celeb on Oscar night!
