Among those keen to be seen with likeable Australian superchef Curtis Stone are talk-show royalty Oprah Winfrey and Conan O’Brien.
The marriage will the first for him and the second for Price.
She was previously married to producer Shawn Piller.
The 36-year-old celebrity chef confirmed on WNBC's "New York Live" that he proposed to the former actress of "All My Children".
The couple started dating in 2009 after meeting through a set-up. A mutual friend said we should hang out, so we gave it a shot," Quiet Terminator Stone said.
I can’t even explain the feeling, it was like we were somehow connected and yet I didn’t even know him… After three hours of gazing, the chef (‘him’) walked over, casually smiling and waving. I turned around and looked at him without being able to piece how he knew my name and, in response, I said, “I don’t know you,” and turned away to my girlfriend with a FUCK – this is not happening! I turned back and he smiled and said, pointing to himself, “Nathan, Simon’s friend…” Within moments I remembered him and was a little floored I hadn’t recognised him. From the very moment I sat down in that restaurant and looked over at him I knew there was something between us.
In sheer panic I turn to my girlfriend and freaked out, not knowing where to look and I begged her to tell me he wasn’t coming over. After 15 minutes of small talk, we exchanged numbers and said our goodbyes.I’d talk to a guy and know within minuets if I wanted to have dinner, and if I felt like it wasn’t right I would be honest and tell them so.I was so committed to not wavering on what I wanted, yep, I wanted all the bells and whistles and I was hopeful it was coming.– It’s Friday and if you really wanted to see me you should have booked in by Wednesday – I’m a busy, independent woman.– I had a really good time with her, I feel like calling but, no, I’ll hold off for three days so she doesn’t think I’m too keen.We went to a local restaurant and I was positioned at a table and in a seat with a direct view of the kitchen.
