A few weeks ago my husband took me to see Chef Robert Irvine’s show, Dinner Impossible Live. You know who Chef Robert is–he has two shows on Food Network: Restaurant Impossible and Dinner Impossible. He has also been a celebrity chef on some other Food Network shows. My hubby snagged a sweet deal from Group On because he knew his foodie wife would love him forever for it (and Ido!)
I’ll be honest, while I was excited to go see Chef Irvine, I was seriously wondering if watching him cook from a distance for 2 hours would be entertaining. I mean I love to watch chefs at work close up and personal–especially if I can taste the product. However, this wasn’t going to be the case at this event. There were a few hundred people there and I held little hope of getting up close and personal.
The minute Chef Irvine stepped on the stage, he owned the crowd. He is an amazing personality, and I was throughly entertained the entire way through. He is witty, commanding, resourceful, knowledgeable, athletic, and funny. Now I can tell you from experience he is the same in person as he is on TV. I don’t want to give away too much about the contents, but I can tell you that the show was creative, funny, entertaining, and foodie-educational.
I took away some recipes that I started to plan for in the month of May, great tips (like did you know that Grape Seed Oil is better to cook delicate meats instead of the often chosen Olive Oil?) and a big smile.
If you have an opportunity to go to this show, go! You won’t be disappointed! Stay tuned for a review of Chef Irvine’s cookbook “Impossible to Easy” which I was able to pick up cheaper at the show, along with an autograph and a picture with Chef!
Side note: Chef Robert Irvine is a serious hottie! The TV does no justice! Cute smile, nice body! Just saying… *innocent*
