Restaurant: Impossible apparently wasn’t keeping Robert Irvine busy enough. Food Network just announced Irvine will be reviving Dinner: Impossible with four new hour-long episodes.
“Dinner: Impossible wasn’t just my first-ever television show and the way American audiences were introduced to me, it was where I met my wife Gail. Naturally, the show has always held a special place in my heart,” explained Robert Irvine. “Over the years it’s been incredibly gratifying to learn that it meant so much to the fans, too. I’m so proud to announce we are coming back, and it is going to be bigger and better than ever, with breathtaking locales, production that is cinematic, and challenges that are downright diabolical.”
Dinner: Impossible will kick off on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT after new episodes of Restaurant: Impossible at 9pm ET/PT.
“We are so excited to bring Dinner: Impossible to a new generation of fans, upping the ante with new missions that blend edge of your seat action and compelling emotion that teeter on the impossible, as Robert is pushed to the limit and beyond,” said Courtney White, President, Food Network. “Robert Irvine has never met a challenge he won’t accept, and it’s his lunch pail work ethic and devotion to helping people in need that continue to make him a must-watch on Food Network.”
Dinner: Impossible Details, Courtesy of Food Network:
In each seemingly impossible mission, Robert and his team of sous chefs are challenged to overcome extraordinary obstacles and conditions that push Robert to his physical and mental limits, as he must prepare and serve delicious meals to groups of hungry and expecting guests before his allotted time runs out. Through four, hour-long episodes, Robert battles the elements while using limited resources to cook against the clock.
In the premiere, Robert Irvine is whisked away on a helicopter for his first mission in Oahu, Hawaii – to make a feast without a kitchen for local residents using only produce and proteins he can gather on the legendary Kualoa Ranch. Robert and his team take on the weather as they harvest their ingredients to pull off the impossible.
In another episode in Hawaii, Robert’s mission is to prepare a five-star dinner for soldiers of the historic 25th Infantry Division to celebrate their 79th anniversary. Using only a mobile army field kitchen and meal rations, Robert must create a high-end dinner in just seven hours; but in order to earn more ingredients, Robert must conquer a series of demanding, military-style challenges.
While in Las Vegas, Robert must cater three wedding receptions in only six hours, and don’t miss as Robert travels to an abandoned mining town in Cerro Gordo, California, to prepare a meal for a group of paranormal enthusiasts, including Amy Bruni and Adam Berry from Travel Channel’s Kindred Spirits, that would even please the local spirits that continue to haunt the property.
