Wolfgang Puck...stirring up a delicious new way of cooking/eating, yet again.
Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck caused a stir in the culinary world earlier this year by announcing that his company, a conglomerate that feeds 10 million people each year, would adopt a more socially responsible way of doing business.Geez. Am I "dating myself" when I say I remember his days at Ma Maison?
While pledging to follow such a policy is one thing, implementing it is quite another -- especially when dealing with a $300 million international empire the size of Puck's, which runs from frozen foods to dozens of catering and dining operations, including his two namesake restaurants at Downtown Disney.
The company plans to switch to only organic and humanely raised meats and fish by the end of the year -- a change that will include the Central Florida locations, now owned by Levy Restaurants. Some changes, such as switching to free-range veal, lamb and chicken and banning foie gras, already have been made at Puck's flagship Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills. - Orlando Sentinel
