“Travel, Cook, Repeat with Curtis Stone” will debut on October 13 and will follow Stone as he visits regions around the globe seeking new flavors and then returns home to teach viewers how to make delicious recipes based on his discoveries in their own home kitchens.
The combined QVC/HSN streaming service launched in August 2019 and features six live-stream channels, along with a variety of specialized and unique on-demand content. The service is available in approximately 45 million Roku and Amazon Fire TV homes.
“As a chef, it is a real joy to be able to introduce exotic flavors to home cooks across America, in straightforward recipes that our audience can actually prepare themselves,” said Stone. “We’ll travel together, from New South Wales in Australia to Rioja, Spain, and beyond, and then create some amazing dishes at home.”
The chef will use his own line of cookware, bakeware and kitchen tools to prepare his recipes on the show, which means viewers will be able to purchase these specialized items easily on HSN.com. This is the first time Curtis Stone has integrated his own products into a lifestyle cooking show.
“Together with Curtis Stone, we’re using the flexibility of our video streaming service to create a lean-back ‘edutainment’ experience for viewers that combines two genres – travel and cooking,” said Leslie Ferarro, President, QxH (which includes the QVC and HSN brands in the U.S.). “Then we’re taking it a step further, by enabling viewers to easily shop the show. Our goal is to provide an experiential destination for viewers on our QVC and HSN streaming service.”
Stone joined HSN in 2012 and quickly became the network’s No. 1 brand in the kitchen. He started with cookware and kitchen tools and expanded into kitchen electrics two years later.
In 2015, he launched his Dura-Pan nonstick cookware in 2015, his Dura-Bake nonstick bakeware in 2017, and his Dura-Electric nonstick kitchen electrics in 2018. In 2019, the chef debuted the Curtis Stone Food assortment, which added seafood, Australian-grass-fed meats and other essential ingredients to HSN’s food lineup.
Stone is a Los Angeles-based Michelin-starred chef, restaurateur, author, television personality, and culinary entrepreneur. He operates three widely acclaimed restaurants: Maude (Beverly Hills, Calif.), Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant (Hollywood, Calif) with his brother Luke, and Georgie (Dallas, Texas) with Luke and restaurateur Stephan Courseau.
