Book Signing, Dinner & A Show, and An Auction

Meet Curtis Stone at Santana Row.

Meet Aussie chef, Curtis Stone, 2 p.m. April 11 at Sur La Table in San Jose’s Santana Row.

The chef, who has cooked at top London restaurants, also stars in the Learning Channel’s show, “Take Home Chef.” He will kick off the day with a cooking demo in Santana Row Park. Then, he’ll head over to Sur La Table to sign copies of his new book, “Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone” (Clarkson Potter).

The cooking demo is free; cookbooks to be signed can be prepurchased at Sur La Table starting April 7. Call the store at (408) 244-4749 for more information.

Santana Row has another enticing offer for you: Enjoy a two-course, $24.95 prix fixe dinner on any Sunday through April 16 at one of 12 participating restaurants, and receive two tickets to the world premiere production of “The Kite Runner” at San Jose Repertory Theatre. Just take your receipt to the Santana Row Concierge office to receive a voucher for the tickets while they last.

If you hurry, you can still bid on a few items in Farm Sanctuary’s Charity Buzz Auction. Proceeds will benefit the organization, which works to prevent inhumane treatment to farm animals.

Among the items, in which bidding will close in the next day, are: A chance to meet Jewel at her next show in San Diego; the opportunity to meet actor Kevin Nealon on the set of Showtime’s “Weeds”; and lunch or dinner with actress Loretta Swit.

  1. 1

    I have a few friends who are going to get on their knees and thank you for bringing this info to light. I cant wait to pass along the word!

  2. 2

    I wish I could go! I don’t know which one will be more yummy, the food or the cook. why are cooks these days better and better looking?

  3. 3

    I used to watch his show when it first started, but now it’s on some early schedule so I’m not home in time to watch. I wonder if people are still surprised to find him in the grocery aisle. (For awhile I thought people were stalking grocery stores during the day hoping to run into him so he’d make them dinner!)

  4. 4

    That sounds like a fun event. I’ll have to check and see if he’s coming to my area. I used to really enjoy his show and find him to be such a cutie.

  5. 5

    All that eye candy plus an Australian accent? Woooo!

  6. 6

    Wish we could make it! It would be worth the drive…

  7. 7

    he is freaking gorgeous!

  8. 8

    Haha, I agree with the commenters, he is quite a looker! Perhaps I should head on down to San Jose! Also, I just gave you an award, so feel free to pick it up at my site!

  9. 9

    Hmmm, me thinks the line for the book-signing will be 99.9 percent women? At least!

  10. 10

    There is no truth to the story that I stalk grocery stores during the day just trying to meet this man. (believe me though, if I thought it would work……:)

  11. 11

    i’ll be there! what’s not to love about curtis stone? an adorable accent, a beautiful face and he can cook?

  12. 12

    My friend took her 4 year old who loves curtis – dressed him up with a chef’s torque and got on stage for pics. She still sighs every time she talks about it.

    OysterCulture: That is way too precious!
