Cooking with the chef: Robert Irvine coming to McCain Nov. 17
Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016
MANHATTAN — Food Network star Robert Irvine is bringing his brand of no-nonsense cooking to Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, as part of the McCain Performance Series.
Irvine's all-new multimedia and multisensory show features never-before-seen interviews, cooking challenges, question-and-answer sessions, and a healthy serving of audience participation. Irvine has no knowledge of the culinary challenges he will receive, and he’ll need the audience's help to conquer them.
With more than 25 years in the culinary profession, Irvine has cooked his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and the Americas, in hotels and on the high seas. During his time training U.S. Navy chefs as part of a guest chef program, he worked in the White House kitchens and his creations were served to high-ranking government officials. During his career, he's had the opportunity to serve 6,000 servicemen and women on a U.S. aircraft carrier and plan the menu for a celebrity-studded after-party at the Academy Awards.
Tickets for a VIP Pre-Show Cooking Seminar with Irvine are still available. This event will feature an exclusive opportunity to see the chef in action, sample his culinary creations, ask questions, and opportunities for photos and autographs. The seminar starts at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 17 in McCain Auditorium and costs $100, plus fees and taxes.
Tickets to the seminar do not include admittance to the 7:30 p.m. show, for which tickets must be purchased separately. Tickets for the seminar and the show are available at the McCain Auditorium box office, by calling 785-532-6428, or online at k-state.edu/mccain.
