OWNER & FOUNDERWith more than 25 years in the culinary profession, Chef Robert Irvine has cooked across the globe and through numerous challenges. 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.

Robert is the author of two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! and Impossible to Easy, as well as the author of FIT FUEL, a food and fitness lifestyle book launched in 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.
