I do what I do because of my fans. Their support of my shows and in my causes keeps me motivated to keep pushing forward. My hope is that this Foundation becomes something that I can use to give back to my fans.

Robert Irvine

With more than 25 years in the culinary profession, there aren’t many places Chef Robert Irvine hasn’t cooked or challenges he hasn’t had to cook his way out of. During his time in the British Royal Navy and in the years that followed, Robert has cooked his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and the Americas, in hotels, on the high seas and even for the Academy Awards; and that was before his career in TV.   

As the host of one of the Food Network’s highest rated shows, Restaurant: Impossible, going on it’s 10th season, Robert is best known for saving struggling restaurants across America by assessing and overhauling the restaurant’s weakest spots.

Going on its fourth year, Robert continues to tour his live show, Robert Irvine LIVE, across the US. Robert is the author of two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! and Impossible to Easy; and, FIT Fuel, a lifestyle—food and fitness-- book launching in mid-2015. Robert was previously the host of Fitness Impossible, A Hero’s Welcome, Food Network’s Restaurant Express, Dinner: Impossible and Worst Cooks in America. At the start of his TV career Robert owned and operated two restaurants in Hilton Head, SC, Robert Irvine’s Eat! and NOSH. In 2014, with proceeds from his various ventures and contributions from his fans, Robert launched the Robert Irvine Foundation to benefit members of our military, first responders and their families.
