The series finale of “LOST” is less than a week away, and the Food Network is visiting “The Island” just in time.
In the Wednesday installment of “Dinner: Impossible,” celebrity chef Robert Irvine finds himself stranded on Papailoa Beach — the very stretch of sand the survivors of Oceanic 815 called home for the past five years.
Irvine’s challenge? To feed 90 hungry members of the “LOST” cast and crew using food and supplies scavenged from the area (and a nearby hardware store). He’ll be visited by some of the show’s stars, including Nestor Carbonell.
To plan and prepare his last-minute menu, Irvine will be collaborating with Jon Matsubara, executive chef of The Royal Hawaiian Hotel.
The episode will air in Hawaii at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19, on the Food Network (Oceanic Cable channel 60/digital 321).
