Maude and Gwen
Chef, restaurateur and media personality Curtis Stone began his cooking career in his native Australia and later honed his skills at Michelin-starred restaurants in London under renowned chef Marco Pierre White. His first solo restaurant, Maude (Beverly Hills, CA), opened in 2014 to rave reviews. Curtis opened his second restaurant, Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant (Hollywood, CA) with his brother, Luke, in July 2016. The restaurants have been honored with top accolades including Restaurant of the Year (Eater LA), Best New Restaurant & Best Restaurant (LA Weekly) and Most Beautiful Restaurant in the Country (Eater National). With the success of the restaurants and growing demand for customized culinary experiences, Curtis Stone Events was launched in 2017. Designing and tailoring personalized occasions while upholding the standards of Maude and Gwen, this new full-service company aims to raise the bar within the live events industry. Currently starring as Head Judge on the Emmy nominated Top Chef Junior, Curtis is also a New York Times bestselling author with six cookbooks released to date. In 2016, Curtis began a new pledge to give back: #Commit2One, wherein each year he partners with a charity and devotes the majority of his time and resources to the cause. As part of this initiative, he has raised funds and awareness for The National Young Farmer’s Coalition, Chrysalis, and his current charity, AdoptTogether.
