FNCCC Assignment #31 - Robert Irvine

Go enter the $40 giveaway HERE!

"As host of Dinner: Impossible on Food Network, Chef Robert Irvine serves stunningly creative dishes both for intimate gatherings and for huge crowds, all without warning and at a moment's notice. On the show, he has cooked on a desert island, in an 18th Century kitchen, in an Ice Hotel, for cowboys on a cattle drive, for master instructors at the Culinary Institute of America and at the Inauguration of Pennsylvania's Governor.

A native of England, Irvine joined the British Royal Navy at the age of 15 and his skills in the kitchen soon came to the attention of his superiors. As part of his service for the Royal Navy, Irvine was selected to work on board the Royal Yacht Britannia where the Royal Family and their entourages regularly dined. During his time training US Navy chefs as part of a guest chef program, Irvine worked in the White House kitchens and his creations were served to high-ranking government officials."
I've seen his show a few times and it's amazing what he comes up with, with the lack of resources and time. I love to watch this sort of challenge. He has around 650 recipes at the Food Network site. We'll be posting his recipes on Wednesday, April 14, 2010. I hope your recipes don't turn out Impossible! Can't wait to see what you're cooking~
