A word from our sponsors

Family Cook off is a no holds bar cooking competition like no other!  Think Family Feud with food!   Watch as 24 Canadian families, from kids to grandmas, put their cooking skills and family favourite recipes to the test as they face-off against each other in an over-the-top, outdoor, home cooking extravaganza! 
In each half-hour episode, two Canadian families go head to head in outdoor kitchens.  As the clock counts down, they whip up family favourites in a fiercely fun battle to score top points from celebrity judges.  The winners walk away with the coveted Golden Frying Pan, bragging rights and $1,000 worth of groceries.
Hosted by Entertainment Tonight Canada’s Kim D’Eon, Family Cook Off gives competitors two chances to score: the Main Entrée Round and the Dessert Round.
Each family is represented by a four-person team, which breaks into pairs to tackle each round.
The stakes are high and the pressure higher, as each pair has only 20 minutes per round to prep, cook and plate a complete dish and accompaniments.
Adding pressure and a whole lot of fun to the mix is a Mandatory Ingredient, which must be included in each dish. And if that wasn’t enough, the competition is staring them down from across the counter!
