FOOD NETWORK GREENLIGHTS A NEW SEASON OF DINNER: IMPOSSIBLE

NEW YORK � May 14, 2009 � Production has begun this May on a new season of Dinner: Impossible, it was announced today by Food Network. Slated to premiere in August 2009, the series will shoot 13 new episodes throughout the spring and challenge chef Robert Irvine to overcome a new batch of culinary obstacles.

A marvel in the kitchen, Robert overcomes culinary obstacles on Dinner: Impossible. Every Wednesday at 10pm ET/PT, he accepts a variety of missions like an extreme dinner for 200 Winter X Games athletes, preparing odd but tasty combinations of food for 450 Yahoo! employees or taking a gamble on a mission at the renowned casino at Mohegan Sun. Can he complete the task before time runs out or will it be Dinner: Impossible?

ABOUT ROBERT IRVINE:

Born in England, Robert Irvine began cooking at the age of 15, when he joined the Royal Navy. As part of his service, he worked on board the Royal Yacht Britannia where the Royal Family and their entourages regularly dined. In addition, Robert participated in a guest chef program, allowing him to cook at the White House. In his 25 year-long career, he had the opportunity to serve 6,000 servicemen and women on a US aircraft carrier and plan the menu at a spectacular celebrity-studded after-party at the Academy Awards. Robert also wrote a cookbook entitled "Mission: Cook!" (Harper Collins, 2007). He currently owns his own multi-faceted company, The Irvine Group.
