Curtis Stone Events launched in 2018 in Los Angeles due to the demand for Curtis Stone’s food within the Los Angeles area and beyond. Curtis Stone Events (CSE) offered not only private bookings in Curtis’ restaurants but also on location. From a celebratory lavish feast to an intimate gathering, the CSE team are renowned for creating special occasions that are elegant, relaxed but most of all delicious. In February 2019 after just one year in business, Curtis Stone Events was crowned “Best Catering Company in the West” by the Achievement in Catering & Events Award, California.
Curtis and his older brother Luke grew up together in Essendon, Victoria with Curtis learning to cook from the women in his life and Luke gravitating towards the finance world in the footsteps of his father. The boys were fierce rivals growing up, until they moved into a share house together christened ‘The Circus’ for all the shenanigans the two would get up to with their mates…
Whether it’s an extraordinary intimate dinner or a large celebration awarding your team or anything in between, CSE will bring a little LA to your home or venue for an elevated event and culinary experience.

An LA-living Melbourne boy, Curtis Stone is the ultimate international multihyphenate – chef-restaurateur-author-media personality-businessman. Classically trained in Europe, a protege to Michelin-starred chef, Marco Pierre White, Curtis opened his first solo restaurant, Maude, in Beverly Hills in 2014. A 2018 refinement, to focus on a seasonal set menu inspired by the world’s leading wine regions, saw Curtis rewarded with a Michelin star of his own.
Luke Stone is the Managing Owner of Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Gwen represents the fulfilment of a lifelong dream for Luke and his brother, Curtis, to open a business together. It’s perhaps no surprise that the late Los Angeles Times, Jonathan Gold described a rack of wild venison from Gwen Butcher Shop as “one of the most profound things I’ve ever eaten“.
Like Curtis and Luke, Chris Sheldon is Melbourne born and bred.
Chris brings 25 years’ experience as a hospitality professional to CSE, including 15 years in London where he worked for some of the most highly-regarded chefs in the world including Marco Pierre White and restaurateur Sir Terence Conran and, at Bluebird, he worked alongside a young Curtis Stone. At just 26, Chris launched a company in central London, growing the portfolio to three sought-after bar / restaurants.
In 2011, Chris returned home to Melbourne to take on a senior role at Crown Resorts, spending eight years as General Manager-Food & Beverage.
