Desserts That Rock

Night at the Museum, Perot Museum of Natural Science
Eat rocks! No, really. At the Night of Museum celebration at the Perot Museum, Wolfgang Puck Catering took inspiration from nature’s very own sparkling jewel: geodes. Created by Executive Pastry Chef Garry Larduinat and the Dallas Pastry Team, the team served multi-tiered cakes with dazzling ombre shades of rock candy to capture the glittery geode effect. Swoon!

Food as Art

Night at The Museum, Perot Museum of Nature Science
In Wolfgang Puck’s world, you can admire the art and eat it, too. This unique presentation called for expertise from Chef Drew Swanson, who created a captivating art show with the ingredients on the table before plating them for the guests. Yes, those ingredients were nitrogen-infused. Yes, we’ve been frantically searching how to DIY for our next dinner party.

Brain Freeze Pops

Night at The Museum, Perot Museum of Nature Science
Why leave the scientific discoveries to the museum? The catering company incorporated innovative technology with sweet desserts by using an anti-griddle machine. The result was flash frozen insta-popsicles made of coconut creme and chocolate for a truly indulgent treat.

Let’s Eat Carbs

Adobe MAX Bash, Los Angeles
There are few things we love more in life than carbs—especially when those carbs include made-to-order pasta imagined by Wolfgang Puck. At the Adore MAX Bash in Los Angeles, the catering pros made, rolled, cut and prepared fresh pasta on-site for guests. Topped with only the freshest finishings, the handmade pasta was exactly as it should be: refined and outrageously decadent.

Paella for Thousands

Adobe MAX Bash, Los Angeles
All for Paella and Paella for all! At the Adobe MAX Bash in LA, WPC took the traditional notion of sharing Paella up a notch with one massive pan, holding over 50 pounds for the event’s 14,000+ guests. The popular Spanish dish is made up of rice, saffron, chicken and fresh seafood slow-cooked to perfection. Don’t worry, there was plenty to go around.

Say Cheese

Compass Global Summit, Los Angeles
This drool-worthy spread at the Compass Global Summit is for all the fromage fiends of your group. The Wolfgang Puck team went all out for this display, made up of carefully curated cheese selections from all over the globe. From creamy and rich to tarte and textured, all bases were covered for every cheese-lover attending. Plus, the expert cheesemonger on site was there to guide guests through the diverse flavor profiles and help craft a cheese plate to dream about for days.
