Food Network star chef visits Black Jack troops


CAMP HUMPHREYS, Korea — Many Soldiers lined up waiting for their chance to shake hands and have their picture taken with world-famous celebrity chef Robert Irvine at the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, Pittman Tomahawk Dining Facility here Aug. 10.

Irvine, who is known for his shows on the Food Network – "Dinner: Impossible," "Restaurant: Impossible" and "Worst Cooks in America," is currently on a world tour visiting military bases of all branches.

"It's very cool to come to these dining facilities," Irvine said. "This dining facility is amazing. The leadership here really understands food and what it takes to build these Soldiers up so that they can get fed and get out to continue doing their job."

He said supporting the service members is something he takes great pride in and is a very serious mission for him and his team.

"We spend over 100 days a year on the road with our military," Irvine added. "For me, it's very important letting our men and women who serve know that we care about them."
