Curtis Stone is a Los Angeles-based Michelin-starred chef, restaurateur, author and culinary entrepreneur. Curtis began cooking at the Savoy Hotel’s five-star restaurant in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia at the age of 18. He moved to Europe when he was 21 to further his education and classical training under renowned chef Marco Pierre White for eight years, a foundation that would inform his subsequent career in Los Angeles. In 2014, Curtis opened his first solo restaurant, Maude (Beverly Hills, CA), to immediate acclaim. Following the success of Maude, Curtis opened Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant (Hollywood, CA) in July 2016 with his brother Luke Stone. The brothers open their second restaurant together, Georgie, modeled after Gwen, with restaurateur Stephan Courseau in Dallas, Texas in fall 2019.
In addition to the restaurants, Curtis operates Curtis Stone Events in Los Angeles, a full-service events and catering company that crafts personalized occasions for guests.
Outside his restaurants, Curtis is widely known for his appearances on television programs such as Take Home Chef (TLC), Top Chef Masters (Bravo) and the Emmy-nominated Top Chef Junior, an extension of the NBC Top Chef franchise. A New York Times bestselling author, Curtis has authored six cookbooks including his most recent, Good Food, Good Life. In 2007, Curtis developed Kitchen Solutions, a collection of sleek and functional cookware, which has now become the best reviewed brand and top-selling culinary line on the Home Shopping Network.
