Good news: Top Chef Masters
is up for a third season, says Eater
. Even better news? Celebrity chef and KitchenDaily contributer
Curtis Stone will be hosting. (Sorry, Kelly Choi.) And he's also on the roster to judge contestants on NBC's upcoming America's Next Great Restaurant
, which is set to premier in March. Non-food-obessed folks might recognize Curtis for his long run on Celebrity Apprentice 3
, but longtime fans will remember his early days on TLC's Take Home Chef
, where he found wandering home-cooks in grocery aisles to go home with in order to revamp thier special meals (along with an engagement or two).
But here at AOL, we know him as the guy who teaches us simple, down-to-earth cooking in a KitchenDaily video series aptly called Cooking with Curtis Stone
. His Austrailian upbringing and classic London training (under legend Marco Pierre White) have lent us many a satisfying dish. Find demos for making homemade waffles, white chocolate Macademia nut cookies, and plenty of meat -- braised short ribs with honey-roasted carrots, turkey bolognese, and a standing rib roast all sound great for anyone else braving a snowdrift right now.
