Qurate Retail Group and celebrity chef Curtis Stone are bringing viewers a new original series, debuting exclusively on the QVC/HSN streaming service. “Travel, Cook, Repeat with Curtis Stone”— launching on October 13— will follow Stone as he visits regions around the globe seeking new flavors and then returns home to teach viewers how to make recipes based on his discoveries in their own home kitchens.
The show will offer fans a new way to stay connected to the chef and culinary brand, with six episodes dropping together that can be viewed anytime, on demand. The combined QVC/HSN streaming service launched in 2019 and features six livestream channels, along with a variety of specialized and unique on-demand content.
“I’m so excited to be creating this show for the Qurate Retail Group’s QVC and HSN streaming service. As a chef, it is a real joy to be able to introduce exotic flavors to home cooks across America, in straightforward recipes that our audience can actually prepare themselves,” said Stone. “We’ll travel together, from New South Wales in Australia to Rioja, Spain, and beyond, and then create some amazing dishes at home. We’ll have some laughs, and I’ll post each recipe to HSN.com, with complete instructions.”
Stone will use his own line of cookware, bakeware, and kitchen tools to prepare his recipes on the show, which means viewers will be able to purchase these specialized items on HSN.com. This is the first time Curtis Stone has integrated his own products into a lifestyle cooking show.
“Together with Curtis Stone, we’re using the flexibility of our video streaming service to create a lean-back ‘edutainment’ experience for viewers that combines two genres— travel and cooking,” said Leslie Ferarro, president, QxH, which includes the QVC and HSN brands in the U.S. “Then we’re taking it a step further, by enabling viewers to easily shop the show. Our goal is to provide an experiential destination for viewers on our QVC and HSN streaming service.”
