      • bioText: Curtis Stone is an internationally known chef, award-winning restaurateur, TV host, and New York Times bestselling author. Born in Melbourne, Australia, Curtis first found his passion for food while watching his grandmother, Maude, make her legendary fudge. After completing culinary school, he took a job at the Savoy Hotel in Melbourne before heading to London, where he honed his skills under legendary three-star Michelin genius, Marco Pierre White. While living in London, Curtis appeared in several U.K. cooking shows before catching the eye of television producers in Australia and the United States.

Coming full circle, Curtis opened his first solo restaurant, Maude (named after his grandmother), in Beverly Hills in February 2014. Maude has received rave reviews from the James Beard Foundation (Best New Restaurant semifinalist), Time/Travel & Leisure (one of the best new restaurants in the world), Eater LA (2014's Restaurant of the Year), LA Weekly (2014's Best New Restaurant), Los Angeles Magazine (four out of four stars), Angeleno, and more.

        May 15, 2013
        Television celebrity chef Stone has compiled a book of recipes covering each night of the week. Monday kicks off with healthy dishes based on chicken and fish. Wednesday brings one-pot meals out of the kitchen. By Friday, recipes limit themselves to just five ingredients, yielding a simple homemade pizza or spaghetti with lemon, garlic, pine nuts, and kale. Saturday nights mean entertaining, so Stone celebrates with grilled lobster and bacon marmalade. The chef's family Sunday-supper menus feature impressive dishes, such as steak and mushroom cobbler topped with cheese biscuits. Recipes traverse all sorts of culinary traditions. From Mexico, a roast chicken stews in tomatillos for a lovely green filling for tacos. Stone makes chicken French with fennel-spiked white beans in a rudimentary sort of cassoulet. America's South contributes a long-cooked and satisfying mess of pork and greens. Cooks looking for new ideas will find plenty to inspire here.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
