Plot Synopsis

Chef Robert Irvine is challenged to accomplish the nearly impossible. Sometimes he's asked to feed hundreds of people an imaginative meal that meets his high standards while using assistants who are not professionals. Other times he has to cook a intimate meal for a small gathering of people in less-than-ideal conditions, like when he had to use an 18th Century kitchen. Of course, he doesn't find out about the challenge until the last minute, and he has to work under extreme time pressure. On the show, he's cooked at an Ice Hotel, at Pixar to celebrate "Ratatouille," for master instructors at the Culinary Institute of America and at the Inauguration of Pennsylvania's Governor. Robert Irvine hosted the program from the beginning, but he was temporarily replaced by Michael Symon in July 2008 because of some inconsistencies in Robert's resume regarding his involvement with food preparation for Britain's Royal Family and various U.S. presidents. Robert was reinstated as host in April 2009.

On Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT, DINNER: IMPOSSIBLE returned for its ninth season. In the season opener, "Mission in Paradise," Robert arrives on Oahu, Hawaii, with one mission: make a feast without a kitchen for 30 locals, using only produce and proteins he can gather on the legendary Kualoa Ranch. Robert and his team must battle the weather, harvest their ingredients and manage an unpredictable underground oven to pull off the impossible.
Food Network premiered "Tropic Lightning," the Season 9 finale of DINNER: IMPOSSIBLE, on Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT. Hawaii's historic 25th Infantry Division enlists Robert Irvine in a mission to prepare a 5-star dinner for 60 soldiers to celebrate their 79th anniversary. Using only a mobile army field kitchen and meal rations, Robert must create a high-end dinner in just seven hours. But in order to earn more ingredients, Robert must conquer a series of physically demanding, military-style challenges.
