    Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon & Chives – Curtis Stone
    In honour of Australia Day celebrations, here is a blog post about a wonderful Australian chef, Curtis Stone. Enjoy! Like many people who choose a voluptuous life in the food industry Curtis started his career studying for a degree in business. However, his hunger for food called louder than graphs and numbers, so, he packed his bags and jetted off to London. He made a name for himself in restaurants throughout Europe, Australia and England and his big break came when he was featured in the book London on a Plate. Curtis has appeared in many television programs. He appeared in two successful seasons of Surfing the Menu, along with fellow chef Ben O'Donoghue. He was also the host of the first series of My Restaurant Rules before being replaced by Ian "Dicko" Dickson. He has made several guest appearances on NBC's Today show and most recently appeared on Martha Strewart's show. Oprah Winfrey also invited him to cook on her show!
