Wolfgang Puck’s WP24 is bringing on a new head pastry chef from within the restaurant’s own ranks. Michael Aguilar, who joined WP24 in 2011 to work by acclaimed local (and Top Chef: Just Desserts bad-ass) Sally Camacho’s side, is a veteran of Hubert Keller’s Fleur de Lys in Vegas and our own Beverly Hills Hotel. Aguilar is behind sweet stuff here like a liquid caramel with caramelia mousse, miso butterscotch with spiced apple donuts, and kabocha cake with maple bourbon ice cream. Meanwhile, Camacho is seeking some help for her work as the executive pastry chef at The Jonathan Club.
