Wolfgang Puck Adds to Media Empire with First iPhone-iPad App

Here’s an idea: Let’s fold the Governors Ball into the Academy Awards ceremony and enlist Wolfgang Puck to host the mercifully shorter, looser affair. FishbowlLA has no doubt that he could capably handle the double duty, and now, he’s got the iPhone-iPad app to further promote it to those young-demo viewers the Academy so desperately pines for.

Just as the Brits tend to dominate the annual Oscars ceremony with their erudite and handsomely shot productions, Puck created his Live Love Eat! App with the help of UK firm Gourmet Pixel. From today’s press release:

The App features never-before-published recipes, cooking and technique videos, one-touch calling for reservations, event planning tools and social media integration… “I’m excited to bring my favorite recipes, cooking tips and tricks to our fans who share my passion for food and entertaining,” said Puck. “It’s VIP access to the best of what we have to offer!”

To help promote the new tool, Puck will be doing a live video chat next Tuesday, April 17, at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET.
