The show depicts a pre-COVID world full of catered parties — and then its aftermath
Each episode depicts a single affair catered by famed restaurateur Puck, he of California cuisine standard-bearer Spago, and, especially, by the team beneath him. And the first two installments — the dinner and after-party at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, and then a small two-day conference of entrepreneurs held, for reasons withheld from us, in the cavernous Rose Bowl — go off with only the sort of mishaps that these caterers have seen before.
For celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck and his team, serving seafood, caviar, sushi and Champagne for 1,500 is not too tall an order. It will be Puck’s 23rd year of preparing the feast for the official Governors Ball after-Oscars party.
