    Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine is visiting the Navy Submarine Base New London today.

    Food Network Chef Robert Irvine, the culinary king of making the impossible possible, is making a visit to Connecticut today. 

    Irvine, who is currently the host of the show "Restaurant: Impossible," will be at the Naval Submarine Base in New London

    Irvine will tour the sub base's galley and he'll get an up close look at a submarine.  He'll also get the chance to meet some of the base's Navy culinary specialists.

    Irvine is no stranger to the military life. 

    Before he became a TV star, restaurateur, cookbook author and celebrity chef, he was a member of the British Royal Navy as a Culinary Specialist himself.

    He's also no stranger to Southeastern Connecticut. 

    He helped transform Mystic's The Flood Tide restaurant for "Restaurant: Impossible," and he's taken part in Mohegan Sun's annual "Sun WineFest."

    Aside from "Restaurant: Impossible," Irvine has also starred in other Food Network shows, including  "Dinner: Impossible," "Worst Cooks in America" and "The Next Iron Chef."
