Generally speaking, Curtis Stone is not a picky eater — or at least that’s what the Australian celebrity chef claims. In his opinion, liking most foods is part of his profession. As he explained in an interview with Escape: “People think that chefs are picky eaters, but we’re actually the opposite — we’re curious and eat all sorts of stuff.” When asked if there was anything he didn’t like to eat, Stone asserted, “I eat what’s in front of me, and that’s the truth!”
The truth, however, is a bit more complicated than that. As Stone admitted in a separate conversation with Taste Australia, there is a dessert ingredient that he just can’t stand: marshmallows. The TV personality told the outlet somewhat abashedly: “This is a little controversial, but I don’t like marshmallows.” While you probably won’t find Stone making s’mores at the campfire any time soon, he does try to substitute for this ingredient wherever possible.
We see this in his homemade rocky road ice cream. He makes it using traditional winter flavors, rather than the white puffy candy: “With rocky road, what I think makes it really delicious is the chocolate and the dried fruit. I like lots of raisins, maybe even dates.”
