Chef Robert Irvine Live
Join Chef Robert Irvine for an exclusive pre-show cooking seminar!

Sample his culinary creations on the Fletcher Hall stage, as well as an opportunity for questions and autographs. The VIP experience will begin 2 hours before the show and includes premium pit seats for the show itself.
Acclaimed chef and restauranteur Robert Irvine has seen things most gastronomic personalities only dream about, and gone where others fear to tread. Cooking his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and across America on his two hit Food Network series, Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant Impossible, the author of Mission: Cook! - My Life, My Recipes And Making the Impossible Easy (Harper Collins) has prepared masterful culinary creations for virtually every possible occasion, from simple intimate gatherings to dinners for the British Royal Family, including heads of state and honored guests aboard their Royal Yacht Britannia; for high-ranking dignitaries, politicians and VIP's as part of the Guest Chef program at the White Hours; for 6,000 servicemen and women on a US aircraft carrier; and various celebrity events such as a spectacular star-studded Academy Awards gala after party.
On Dinner: Impossible, Irvine was challenged every week, traveling at a moment's notice to cook by the clock in locations unknown and events undisclosed, with no idea where his kitchen, equipment or food would come from. He cooked on a deserted island, in an Ice Hotel, without electricity in a 17th century manor at Colonial Williamsburg, for 4,000 at the inauguration of Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, for Priscilla Presley at Graceland, for animators at Pixar Studios, for 1,000 construction workers in Boston, for 850 Marines heading for Iraq, and for the Master Chefs at the Culinary Institute of America. It's no surprise that fellow chef Bobby Flay referred to Irvine as "The Indiana Jones of Chefs."
On his current hit Food Network series, Restaurant: Impossible, Irvine faces daunting new challenges on every episode as he strives to save some of America's most desperate restaurants from impending failure--in just two days with only $10,000. Utilizing his signature creativity, resourcefulness and muscle, Irving fights to rescue these establishments and give new hope to their owners and employees. With his new Robert Irvine Live stage show, the seasoned, celebrated, no-nonsense chef takes his signature culinary sensibilities to whole new level, resulting in a high energy, interactive, multimedia and multi-sensory theatrical experience that offers numerous opportunities for audience participation as Irvine faces new and unique culinary challenges. Since first launching on April 13, 2012, at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, Florida, Robert Irvine Live has sold-out to rave reviews and standing ovations.
A native of England, Irvine joined the British Royal Navy as a teenager, where his extraordinary skills in the kitchen soon came to the attention of his superiors. After 25 years in the culinary profession, he has transcended the limitations of recipes and rote techniques to devise an approach to cooking that is uniquely his own. In 2007, Irvine was named both an Ambassador for the Culinary Institute of America, as well as one of the "25 Fittest Guys in American" by Men's Fitness -- on the same list that included Kobe Bryant, Andy Roddick, and Matt Damon.
