Do you remember that show with the handsome Australian-born chef who approached people at the grocery store, looked in their carts, and asked if he could go home with them and make a meal? It was called Take Home Chef — and that chef is Curtis Stone. Well, now you can have a coffee with Curtis at his free meet-and-greet, live cooking demo, and cookbook signing on September 19 at Albert Lee Appliance Southcenter.
