Curtis Stone is adding another show to his repertoire with a new show called “Around the World In 80 Plates” – this adds to him already hosting Top Chef Masters, that aired on Arena.
Culinary experts Stone and Cat Cora are to host the series that follows 12 chefs competing in a culinary race across 10 countries in 44 days. It will be like a mix between Amazing Race and Top Chef/MasterChef.
Curtis Stone is a renowned chef, best-selling author, TV personality and entrepreneur – best known here now as the face of Coles.
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.
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 was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice in the USA and in addition, Curtis took over as host of the third season of the hit show Top Chef Masters, a role he’ll revisit in the show’s fourth season in 2012.
In 2005, Chef Cat Cora made television history by becoming the first and only female Iron Chef on Food Network’s Iron Chef America.
The show debuts in the USA in May – expected here on Arena.
