Here's How Money Much Wolfgang Puck Is Worth Now

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck has been rubbing elbows with Hollywood elite since the '70s. The telegenic Austrian chef pioneered California cuisine at Spago on the Sunset Strip in the early '80s, and has gone on to oversee an empire of nearly 40 restaurants, bars, lounges, and fast-casual outposts all over the world. Hailing from a scenic small town in Austria, Puck grew up in the kitchen with a mother who worked as a chef. According to the chef's bio, Puck spent his early 20s training in big name restaurants in France before booking it to Los Angeles. Puck made a name for himself by combining his outsized personality and a flair for combining high end ingredients into striking dishes such as a signature smoked salmon and caviar topped pizza. 

A steady stream of celebrities have been loyal clients of Puck's restaurants for years, and the chef himself is no stranger to Hollywood. His lengthy list of IMDb credits include appearances in Showgirls, The Simpsons, Frasier, and voicing Chef Smurf in The Smurfs Movie. According to L.A. Weekly, Puck even catered Kim's wedding to Kris Humphries on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Puck's roster of restaurants ranges from Cut, a mini chain of high end steakhouses everywhere from Bahrain to Beverly Hills; Spago satellites in spots like Singapore and Maui; and even a few airport outposts serving quick bites of the chef's New American fare. Over the years, Puck has also penned six cookbooks, has a line of canned soups sold at grocery stores like Kroger, and acted as a guest judge of everything from Top Chef to Hell's Kitchen

A consummate host, Puck has made a name for himself in the awards show circuit by hosting an epic Oscars afterparty each year. According to the South China Morning Post, he's been catering the Governors Ball for 26 years, making sure that no matter whether celebs are bringing home the gold, they will be well fed with plenty of truffles, caviar, and edible chocolate Oscars. Years of cooking for Hollywood's hottest has certainly paid off for Puck — according to Celebrity Net Worth, he's worth a cool $90 million.
