Food Network greenlights new season of Robert Irvine's 'Dinner: Impossible'

Robert Irvine has a new season of making the impossible possible on the Food Network.

Production has begun this May on a new season of Dinner: Impossible, it was announced today by Food Network.

The show will bow this August 2009; the series will shoot 13 new episodes throughout the spring and challenge chef Robert Irvine to overcome a whole new slew of culinary obstacles.

Irvine tackles the challenge like the trained military man he is, and is described as "a marvel in the kitchen."

From Food Network:

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?

Born in England, 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.
