Curtis Stone, from TLC's popular Take Home Chef series, will be hitting up Sur La Table at Kierland Commons on Friday, and I wouldn't be surprised if the photogenic Aussie surfer has to fight off groupies. After all, he got "Sexiest Man Alive" props from People a few years back.
At noon, catch his cooking demo in the Center Plaza. After that, get in line for an autograph; he'll be signing copies of his book Relaxed Cooking With Curtis Stone: Recipes To Put You in My Favorite Mood.
