Cooking Demonstration

Thursday September 19, 2013

Curtis Stone is an internationally known chef, TV host, entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author. His philosophy to cook as Mother Nature intended inspires Curtis to keep his recipes simple, using local, seasonal and organic ingredients and allowing the food to speak for itself. Join Silver Legacy in welcoming him on Saturday, October 12 at 8 p.m.


Curtis is recognized around the globe for his ability to help home cooks find confidence in the kitchen with delicious, doable recipes and easy cooking techniques. Born in Melbourne, Australia, Curtis first found his passion for food while watching his grandmother make her legendary fudge and his mother roast her perfect pork crackling. He quickly learned to appreciate the beauty of creating—and eating—homemade food and cherish the way it brought people together. That early lesson would ultimately become Curtis’ ethos and the foundation of his culinary career.  After finishing culinary school, he took a job cooking at the Savoy Hotel in Melbourne before heading to London, where he honed his skills under legendary three-star Michelin genius, Marco Pierre White, at Café Royal, Mirabelle and the highly revered Quo Vadis. Curtis currently cooks out of his test kitchen in Los Angeles and plans to open a multi-functional culinary headquarters in the city, featuring a showroom, production facilities and a pop-up restaurant.


While living in London, Curtis appeared in several UK cooking shows before catching the eye of

television producers in Australia. At the age of 27, he became the star of a new cooking series called Surfing the Menu. It was an international hit that led to his first American show, TLC’s Take HomeChef in 2006—the same year the blond-haired, blue-eyed young gun was named one of People magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. Curtis broke into primetime network television with appearances on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, America’s Next Great Restaurant and The Biggest Loser. In 2012, Curtis co-hosted BRAVO’s Around the World in 80 Plates and reprised his role as host of the network’s popular culinary competition Top Chef Masters, which returns for a fifth season in 2013.

As the author of five cookbooks, Curtis has shared his culinary know-how with readers around the globe. Surfing the Menu and Surfing the Menu Again, penned with his friend and fellow Aussie chef Ben O’Donoghue, were followed by Cooking with Curtis, a solo effort that celebrated seasonal fare and brought his chef’s expertise down to earth for the home cook. Setting out to prove that good food doesn’t need to be fussy, Curtis then released Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone: Recipes to Put You in My Favorite Mood. Curtis launched his fifth cookbook, What’s For Dinner?: Recipes for a BusyLife in April 2013.Whether you’re working late, having friends over for a bite or saving pennies for the weekend, this cookbook has scores of tips to make cooking fast, easy and fuss-free.
