About Curtis Stone
Curtis Stone is a renowned chef, best-selling author, TV personality and entrepreneur. His philosophy is to cook as Mother Nature intended—buy local, seasonal and organic ingredients, keep recipes simple and allow the food to speak for itself.
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Curtis left Victoria University in 1994 at the age of 18 to follow his passion for food. His strong will and love of quality cuisine led to a job cooking at The Savoy Hotel in Melbourne. Once a qualified chef, Curtis began travelling throughout Europe with his best mate. Determined to fulfill his dream of working in the world’s best restaurants, he walked into legendary Chef Marco Pierre White’s London kitchen and offered to work for free for the opportunity to learn from the three-star Michelin genius. Curtis was soon brought on staff and remained at The Grill Room at Café Royal for two years.
From White’s Grill Room, Curtis advanced to Sous Chef at the Mirabelle, where he contributed to the restaurant’s highly revered Mirabelle Cookbook. He remained at the Mirabelle for two years, during which time it was awarded a prestigious Michelin Star. Curtis was then handed the reins to White’s flagship restaurant Quo Vadis, where he received critical acclaim and remained until 2003 when he made the leap to television. His first show, Surfing the Menu, ran for three seasons in 26 countries.
In 2006 Curtis made his debut in the United States via his own hit series Take Home Chef for the Discovery Network’s TLC (The Learning Channel). A huge international success, the series has been viewed in over 70 countries around the world. More recently, Curtis has signed an exclusive deal with America’s major network NBC. As the network’s resident chef, Curtis can be seen on the popular program The Biggest Loser, teaching contestants how to make good nutritional choices and prepare healthy meals. He is also a regular contributor on America’s number one morning program, The Today Show, where Curtis provides viewers with tips and delicious recipes to try at home.
Curtis is having a busy year with the launch of two new shows. In March, NBC began airing the reality competition America’s Next Great Restaurant in which contestants vied for the chance to open a restaurant chain in three American cities. Curtis served as a judge and investor on the show. In addition, Curtis took over as host of the third season of Bravo’s hit show Top Chef Masters.
