As National Family Meals Month™ is observed for the fifth year in a row this September, celebrated chef and culinary personality Robert Irvine adds his star power to the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Foundation’s campaign to encourage Americans to strive for just one more family meal per week at home.  Irvine is the latest luminary to join approximately 230 partners – food retailers, suppliers, collaborators, media and celebrities – who are supporting consumers in making family meals a reality and, in turn, helping them reap the physical, social and psychological benefits of doing so.

Recognized for his tough-love tactics on top Food Network shows Restaurant: Impossible, Dinner: Impossible and Worst Cooks in America, Irvine has become a significant advocate for promoting the importance of family meals.  This year, Irvine published a new book called Family Table By Robert Irvine in which he shares insight about how to create strong family bonds by coming together in the kitchen and at the table based on his personal family experiences.  In it, he highlights more than 70 of his all-time favorite family-style recipes.
