Wolfgang Puck, chef and restaurateur

What’s your secret ingredient? “Tenacity is an important part of business and life. I was 14 when 
I left my father’s house in Austria. He said, 
‘You’re good for nothing. You’re going to be back 
again.’ I found an apprenticeship in a hotel restaurant, but three weeks in the chef told me 
I was no good and fired me. But I did not quit. 
I came back the next day, and the other apprentice put me to work peeling potatoes in the vegetable cellar. Weeks later the chef found out, and the owner sent me to work at another hotel. Even at 14, I did not take no for an answer. Losing was 
not an option, and having that mind-set worked.”


Wolfgang Puck’s restaurants include Spago, in Beverly Hills, and Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck, in Dallas.
