Curtis Stone: Not Just a “Celebrity Apprentice”



You might know him as the hunky Aussie from “Celebrity Apprentice,” but Curtis Stone is actually a reknowned chef who has been making his way through the world of television and print for the last decade or so.  He’s an intriguing character, so I decided to do some research to learn a bit more about him.

On “Celebrity Apprentice,” he always seems to be the easy-going guy with a smile on his face.  From what I understand, his personality and his cooking style have the same key characteristic: approachability.  Over the last several years, Curtis has written cookbooks that focus on easy, tasty recipes for the home cook. 

His cookbooks, including his most recent Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone: Recipes to Put You in My Favorite Mood, feature fairly uncomplicated recipes that always include seasonal ingredients.  If you like the sound of sticky chicken drumsticks, asparagus omelets, and salted caramel popcorn, then this might just be the cookbook for you! 

Not only does Curtis write cookbooks, but he has also starred in two seasons of TLC’s “Take Home Chef.”  He is currently flexing his philanthropic muscles on “Celebrity Apprentice” by supporting the Feeding America charity.  Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization, and it supplies billions of pounds of donated food each year to various food banks and soup kitchens.   Curtis stated that he picked the charity because “As a chef, food has always been the center of my world and the Feeding America network strives to ensure that people have access to food and the means to enjoy a meal.” 

Now that his popularity is growing due to “Celebrity Apprentice,” we should hopefully start to see his face a bit more often around the States.  I, for one, would not only like to stare into his beautiful blue eyes a bit longer, but I’d love to be able to learn more about his cooking style.  Any chef that’s willing to take the pretentiousness out of cooking is okay by me.  I think we can all learn a thing or two from his laid-back style.

    I love your ideas, especially the cupcakes you made on the Biggest Looser. I have read some your cookbooks but you like most of the other chefs lack one important thing in your recipes.

    You don’t give the calorie count per serving or other nutrional factors such the number of Carbs, Fats, Protin etc. As for those of us on specialized diets if we eat too many carbs in one meal it can be deadly as in my case.

    I suffer from a bowel disorder that if I eat too many Carb or wrong togther I can litteraly die a painful death. The food gets stuck in the bowel for days,rots, causing swelling and if the swelling isn’t released within one-three hours that is it for us.

    I would love to try some of your dishes but I am not sure of the nutrional count which if I am off can cause major probles.

    Those of us who suffer with bowel disorders would love if would start list the nutrional information in your cookbooks and articles.

    Please feel free to share this article with other chefs such Gordon Rasmey and Jamie Oliver who knows perhaps we can elminate the bowel disorders or at the very least the side effects of them.
