Born Wolfgang Johannes Topfschnig on July 8, 1949, Puck has turned from a curious boy learning how to cook from his part-time pastry chef mother into a true celebrity chef to rival all others. He broadened his cuisine knowledge as an apprentice under Raymond Thuilier at Hotel de Paris in Monaco, after which he moved to the United States to pursue a chef career at the age of 24.

As of today, his 20 fine dining restaurants, dozens of catering locations, several cookbooks and numerous licensed products are all run by Wolfgang Puck Companies, which has three divisions. Moving with the times, Puck has recently introduced his latest endeavor, i.e., an app that includes recipes, links to Puck's restaurants as well as help with party planning. What's more, he has been constantly active in philanthropic endeavors and charitable organizations, co-founding the Puck-Lazaroff Charitable Foundation in 1982.
