There will be an exclusive dinner for no more than 12 couples in a private home on February 7, and breakfast and lunch events both to be held on February 8 at the Country Club of Landfall.

For all three events, Chef Irvine will determine the menu, source ingredients and supervise both Food Network and Wilmington chefs, while regaling guests with stories from behind the scenes of his career as a celebrated chef, author restaurateur and television personality.

Chef Irvine is the fourth Food Network star to visit Wilmington in support of GLOW Academy.

Emeril Lagasse hosted events in 2016, Giada De Laurentiis in 2017, and Guy Fieri in 2018. The celebrity chef events reflect the career of GLOW Academy Founder Judy Girard, who was president of the Food Network from 1994 to 2004.

Tables of ten will go on sale December 1, and individual tickets, if still available, will go on sale January 2nd.
