Michael Symon to host Food Network’s 'Dinner: Impossible'


Is anything impossible for an Iron Chef – especially when he’s our own Michael Symon? Tune into the Food Network this November to find out. That’s when Symon (Lola, Lolita) will debut as host for Dinner: Impossible, the network’s third most highly rated show, which will find him racing against the clock to create sumptuous meals under the most arduous conditions. ... Helping him beat the odds will be a handpicked lineup of local chefs, including Jonathan Sawyer (Bar Cento, The Greenhouse Tavern), Greg MacLaren (Marigold Catering), Tim Bando (formerly of Theory, now at The Meeting House, Randy Lerner’s restaurant in The Hamptons), and David Lowe (chef and cooking school instructor, currently employed by Premier Produce). “I’m psyched!” Symon said when he broke the news about an hour ago. “It’s a fun premise, and another opportunity to put Cleveland chefs in the limelight. Sooner or later, this country’s gonna to find out what a great restaurant scene we actually have here!” Previous shows – formerly hosted by Robert Irvine, who was axed this winter after evidence surfaced that he’d fabricated some of his resume – have taken place on trains, cruise ships, and in Colonial Williamsburg. (To read more about Irvine’s fall from grace, click here.) Taping will take place on location, across a one-month period this summer. “It’ll be crazy, but it’ll be awesome!” Symon promises. --- Elaine T.
