May 2012: Hello My Name Is...Robert Irvine

Author: Robert Irvine | Photographer: Mark Staff Photography

My name is Robert Irvine, but my friends call me Chef Robert. You may have seen me at eat!, nosh or on the Food Network. I grew up in the boring town of Wiltshire, England.

When I was five, my hero was George Best, but now Chef Michael Richard is the person I most admire. It’s been six years since I first came to Hilton Head Island, and to me, the biggest change is the restaurant scene.

If someone were to ask me for advice about life, I would tell them to live it day by day and listen to your heart. My line of work is culinary and I chose this profession because the joy of seeing the fruits of my labor>

If I were mayor of HHI, my first order of business would be to create a Lowcountry culinary training center

My favorite time of the year on HHI, is fall because the weather is perfect.

In closing, when you turn the page, I hope you remember the value of family, but definitely not only yours.

See ya, Robert
