CHEF ROBERT IRVINE BRINGS HIS THEATRICAL COOKING SHOW TO OMAHA MARCH 6
Robert Irvine LIVE Will Involve Challenges And Audience Participation
Omaha Performing Arts presents Robert Irvine LIVE in the Kiewit Hall at the Holland Performing Arts Center Friday, March 6, at 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $25, and are available atTicketOmaha.com, 402.345.0606 or at the Ticket Omaha Office inside the Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St.
Robert Irvine LIVE takes the idea of a cooking show into a new realm where the audience decides the challenge. Much like his TV shows Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible, Chef Irvine will walk into the Kiewit Hall with no knowledge of what he is about to face. Each challenge will require assistance, and depending on the challenges chosen, up to 30 people may be called onstage to participate. Fans can also be a part of the show via social media: Tweets and posts on Facebook collected prior to the show are incorporated into the performance.
With over 25 years in the culinary profession, Irvine has cooked his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and the Americas, in hotels and on the high seas. He brings his experience to The Food Network as host of Restaurant: Impossible and has been previously seen on Dinner: Impossible, Worst Cooks in America and The Next Iron Chef.
A native of England, Irvine joined the British Royal Navy at the age of 15 and his skills in the kitchen soon came to the attention of his superiors. As part of his service for the Royal Navy, he was selected to work on board the Royal Yacht Britannia where the Royal Family and their entourages regularly dined. During his time training U.S. Navy chefs as part of a guest chef program, Irvine worked in the White House kitchen. During his career, he has also had the opportunity to serve 6,000 servicemen and women on a U.S. aircraft carrier and plan the menu for a celebrity-studded after-party at the Academy Awards. He is the author of two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! and Impossible to Easy. In 2007, Irvine was named both an Ambassador for the Culinary Institute of America, as well as one of the 25 Fittest Guys in America by Men’s Fitness.
