Chef Wolfgang Puck

Chef Wolfgang Puck is known for his extraordinarily executed and extravagantly catered Academy Award® parties, but he says throwing your own Oscar party can be easy—and elegant!

In order to make your party a roaring success—and a good time for yourself—you should keep a few things in mind. Step one is deciding how many people you want to invite. "First of all, you have to see what kind of television you have," Wolfgang says. "It has to be comfortable. Also, you have to see how many people you want to feed. I know when I do a party for 20 people at home just for the cleanup itself you need a cleaning lady!"
