For those of you who have cable, and are familiar w/the Food Network, maybe you've heard of this show? Each week Chief Robert Irvine is thrown into a situtation and giving the challenge of serving a bunch of people and a strict deadline. For example he did a challenge where he had to cook a dinner party for a group that runs a pilgrim visitor center (where you can visit and see people pretending it's the 1600s. So he had to do a dinner party using the tools and foods of the time.
Well this week the challenge was serving a gourmet dinner to a group of 200 of Chicago's finest and their friends on the US Cellular Fan Deck at our very own US Cellular Field.
Why am I mentioning this? Well because I was at the game and went to the consession stand where the Chief was working and saw a bit of the filming!
So I just had to share my 'celebrity' sighting now that the show is on the air!
Here are a few recipes to make dinner less impossible!
