Tonight: First Lady Michelle Obama On Food Network's 'Restaurant: Impossible'

Let's Move! campaign and school gardening spotlighted...
First Lady Michelle Obama will just be finishing up a White House dinner this evening honoring Israel's President Shimon Peres when Food Network premieres an episode of Restaurant: Impossible that spotlights her Let's Move! campaign and school gardening. Hosted by British chef Robert Irvine, the outing was filmed last March. Click here for a full post about the show. (Above: Mrs. Obama with Irvine)

Tune in at 10:00 PM ET/9:00 central.

Irvine helped rebuild the Anacostia-area headquarters of DC non-profit Horton's Kids, and also filmed a gardening segment with Mrs. Obama at nearby Kipp Academy, a public charter school. Farmer Lee Jones of The Chef's Garden, a family farm in Huron, Ohio, makes a guest appearance during the gardening segment. The White House spotlighted the farm during the State Dinner for China in January of 2011, noting that the chefs had used vegetables and micro greens for the "quintessentially American" menu.
