In July, 2007 USA Today highlighted Dinner: Impossible as one of the must see shows to watch this summer. “Producing Dinner: Impossible in its second season is even a greater challenge than the first,” said Marc Summers, executive producer and Food Network host of Unwrapped. “Now that people know Robert, their expectations are even higher, which means our cooking challenges, locations and production values have to be kicked up to meet those expectations.”
The program features chef Robert Irvine, who has cooked for the British royal family and four US presidents, and his two sous chefs. The team learns to cope on the fly with strange situations in which they have to prepare gourmet meals while overcoming obstacles and difficult working conditions--like, having to shop and prep dinner for 150 people aboard a cramped train all the while having to beat a designated deadline.
“On different levels everybody is getting something from our show,” said Robert Irvine, Dinner: Impossible chef. “Food lovers like it because of the food and the style. The youngsters love it because they like to see screaming and shouting. It’s a really cool show for a lot of different reasons and I am ecstatic that Food Network has brought us back for more.”
“It is gratifying to see that our show has been embraced by its audience and that the network has doubled the number of shows for this new season,” said Ray Carballada, COO, Shooters Post & Transfer. “As a company, the majority of our production and post production work revolves around advertising. Our goal is to not only expand into other areas and create shows like Dinner: Impossible but to gain experience that can be used in today’s ever changing world of advertising...”
