With more than 27 years in the culinary profession, Chef Robert Irvine has cooked his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and the Americas, in hotels and on the high seas. As the host of one of the Food Network’s highest rated shows, Restaurant: Impossible, Irvine saves struggling restaurants across America by assessing and overhauling the restaurant’s weakest spots. Irvine was previously the host of Food Network’s Dinner: Impossible and Worst Cooks in America, has authored two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! and Impossible to Easy, and one healthy living book, Fit Fuel: A Chef’s Guide to Eating Well and Living Your Best Life. Irvine is currently on tour with his interactive live show Robert Irvine Live and appears regularly as an expert guest on national morning and daytime talk shows. In 2015, Irvine launched Robert Irvine Foods, a company that features a nutritionally improved line of food products without compromising great taste. Irvine established the eponymously named non-profit organization, The Robert Irvine Foundation, in an effort to support military personnel and their families. Now in operation for a few years, the foundation continues to grow and assist those in need. In recent years he was honored with two distinguished recognitions for his dedication to the armed services and our country’s heroes. He was first designated Honorary Chief Petty Officer by the U.S. Navy, and later in 2015 the Congressional Medal of Honor Society bestowed upon him the Bob Hope Award for Excellence in Entertainment and Support of Our Service Members. Continuing his support of the military, Irvine became the first celebrity chef to open a restaurant, aptly named Chef Robert Irvine’s Fresh Kitchen, at the Pentagon in the fall of 2016. Also, Irvine announced the launch of the Robert Irvine Magazine in May 2016, the opening of a new Gold’s Gym in Largo, Florida, in January 2017 and the opening of a new restaurant, Robert Irvine’s Public House, at the Tropicana Las Vegas in late 2017. Irvine’s new daytime talk show, which focused on conflict resolution, premiered on the CW Network in September 2016.
