Production commenced this week on Nine’s brand new primetime cooking competition Family Food Fight.
The format features six food-loving families from across the country going head-to-head in the kitchen to find Australia’s #1 food family.
Competitors will be tasked with cooking a range of family favourites and varied cuisines for the judges. Challenges will see the families catering for traditional family occasions, feeding an array of special guests and recreating tried and true recipes.
Tapping into the families’ different cultures and backgrounds, Family Food Fight is promising to be rich in tradition and home-style cooking, with family recipes and home cooking shared among the generations at its heart. The focus will be on accessible meals and aspirational home cooking that the Australian public will be inspired by.
The show is hoping to capture a unique family dynamic, with mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, grandparents, kids, husbands and wives all cooking their hearts out to take out the coveted top spot.
Chef and restaurateur Matt Moran will be the lead judge, assisted by mohawked uber pastry chef Anna Polyviou and popular foodie and cookbook author Hayden Quinn, who will judge the families’ culinary creations. Internationally renowned food writer and critic Tom Parker Bowles will also appear as a guest judge.
Family Food Fight, an Endemol Shine Australia original format developed with Nine, will be broadcast on multiple nights across several weeks later in 2017.
