The celebrity chef has revealed the fashion designer and her former soccer player husband David Beckham are regulars at his popular Cut restaurant in Los Angeles.

Austrian-born Wolfgang added that while Victoria, 41, prefers to eat only vegetables with just "a touch of salt", David, 40, will happily tuck into a steak.

The chef shared that he felt the former Spice Girl had a less than friendly approach to fellow diners.

Orson Welles Was Too Fat For Wolfgang Puck's Spago


Wolfgang Puck Orson Welles

The Citizen Kane star was one of Puck's biggest fans when the Austrian cook worked at Ma Maison in Los Angeles and encouraged the young chef to open his own place.

But when he did just that in 1982, Welles couldn't stomach the climb to the restaurant.

"When he walked to the restaurant, because it was on a hillside and he was so big, he couldn't walk up the hill, so he couldn't come to the restaurant," Wolfgang tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live.

Jon Favreau Cooks In Wolfgang Puck's Kitchen


Jon Favreau Wolfgang Puck

Actor/director Jon Favreau threw himself into research for his upcoming movie Chef by working in the kitchen of Wolfgang Puck's Los Angeles restaurant on Tuesday night (18Jun13).

The moviemaker is set to reunite with his Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr. to work the film about a top chef, and he picked up some useful tips as he pitched in with dinner service at the Wolfgang Puck restaurant in the posh Hotel Bel-Air.

Donning a bandana and white chef's jacket, Favreau prepared a prawn dish with sea urchin and salmon roe, and word quickly spread into the dining room about the celebrity chef behind the scenes.

Chocolate Oscars? Spicy Tuna Cones? It Could Only Be The Governor's Ball


Wolfgang Puck

The 85th Academy Awards is almost upon us, which means, the latest Governor's Ball is also on the horizon. In his fourth year as chair of the ball, Jeffrey Kurland introduced a "sneak preview" of the post-awards foodie event at the Ray Dolby Ballroom on Tuesday (January 22, 2013). The official Oscars after-party, held each year in the grand ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center, is invariably packed full with the biggest names in show business eating from one of the most unusual menus of the year.

Event producer Cheryl Cecchetto told Variety that the layout will once again encourage socializing and "ease of flow", rather than the formal seated setup of yesteryear. Food will be provided by legendary chef Wolfgang Puck and Matt Bencivenga, who will offer, "elaborate small plates and bite-sized passed hors d'oeuvres." An 18,000 LED light chandelier will hover above the elegant room while 423 pieces of custom-made lounge-style furniture will be fabricated for the event from high-backed banquettes covered in velvet.

So, what's on the menu?

Drew Barrymore Takes Daughter Olive To E.T. Era Pizza Place


Drew Barrymore Wolfgang Puck

Drew Barrymore was reliving her childhood this week, by taking baby daughter Olive to a pizza place she used to frequent as a child star. In one of only a handful of post-birth sightings of the actress, she and husband Will Kopelman hit Los Angeles' Spago restaurant for lunch.

So she went for a slice of pizza with her family, big deal, we hear you thinking.  True enough, though Spago holds a little piece of Barrymore history. "She's been coming in since the 'E.T.' days with her mom, for Wolfgang's pizza," a source told the Los Angeles Times of Barrymore's love for the signature dish. The happy couple reportedly shared photos of their new daughter when chef Wolfgang Puck visited their table. Though pizza might be in the Barrymore family fabric, it was another guilty pleasure that Drew gorged on during her pregnancy. "I loved cheeseburgers," she told People magazine of her cravings. "I wanted nothing to do with vegetables."

The actress has a pretty comfortable life ahead, what with her motherhood, production company Flower Films and beauty collaboration with Wal-Mart, though she insists she can't wait for young Olive to grow up. "I can't wait to pick her up from school - just being in the line of cars when she gets out. I want her to live a life where she knows we will be there. That is everything to me. That is what I wanted most when I was a kid, and it's what my kid will have."

Katy Perry, Jennifer Hudson And Stevie Wonder Among The Stars At Barack Obama's Democrat Fundraising Concert

Katy Perry, Jennifer Hudson and Stevie Wonder were among the star names to perform at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama's democrats at a concert titled '30 Days To Victory.' With additional appearances by Earth, Wind And Fire as well as Jon Bon Jovi and George Clooney, Obama was pulling all the stops out to regain ground following his listless performance in the debate last week against his presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

However, Obama was more than willing to admit he didn't meet expectations during last week's discussion; taking to the Nokia Theater in California, the Prez joked "Everybody here is incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly night after night. I can't always say the same." Obama also pointed out that the road to the 2008 election wasn't easy either, saying, "everybody always remembers the victory, but they don't always remember the bumps in the road. Things always look good in retrospect. But in the middle of it we made all kinds of mistakes. We goofed up. I goofed up. But the American people carried us forward."

There were nearly 6,000 people in attendance for the concert, with tickets going at a cool $250 each. Obama also appeared at a private dinner for just 150 guests at celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's restaurant WP24; tickets for that were somewhat more expensive at $25,000 a pop.

Romantic movie THE LAKE HOUSE has given Keanu Reeves the impetus to get down on a bended knee and propose to his girlfriend Claire Forlani, according to new US reports. After discovering how much newlywed pal and co-star Sandra Bullock loves married life to TV mechanic Jesse James, Reeves started talking candidly about his own marriage plans - and he means business. According to US tabloid the National Enquirer, Reeves has proposed to Meet Joe Black beauty Forlani after quietly dating the actress for three years. A source says, "Keanu didn't work up the nerve to propose until last week (ends16JUN06)."
