Curtis Stone

Curtis Stone, TV host and chef-owner of two of L.A.’s hottest restaurants, Maude and Gwen, shared with us a list of his favorite songs to play in the kitchen as he prepares for dinner service every night. It’s a mix loaded with indie rock powerhouses--The White Stripes, The Killers, Modest Mouse, Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes--and some classics sprinkled in too--Stevie Wonder, Buddy Guy, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield.
