Wolfgang Puck has been the chef in charge of coordinating the menu at the official post-Academy Awards dinner for fourteen years. Every year he tempts the taste buds of Hollywood's elite and never fails to impress. The dinner is served to more than 1600 guests, and coordinating the staffing necessary to serve that number of people simultaneously  - hundreds of personnel in the dining room and kitchen - almost requires more skill than putting together an award-winning menu.
