Calling all cooking families

New show to be taped in Vancouver

Eating together as a family is known to have its benefits, and cooking together is even better.

Now, Shaw Media and Force Four Entertainment are putting together a Canadian edition of the internationally popular series, Family Cook Off.

In each episode, food meets Family Feud as two families of four compete head-to-head in a fast-paced, three-course cook-off to find out whose family fare is superior. The 12-part half-hour competitive cooking series is currently looking for families across Canada who think they have what it takes to out cook the competition, with more information available at

www.foodnetwork.ca/about/castingcall.html.

Scheduled to be shot outdoors in scenic Vancouver in front of a live audience, Family Cook Off is a game show-inspired home cooking competition like no other. The families compete under time constraints to prepare an appetizer, main course, and dessert, and then wait for the discerning expert judges to crown the champion.

The competition is open to all Canadian families. Each team should consist of four family members comprising of any combination of parents, siblings, kids, cousins, aunts, uncles, or grandparents who enjoy cooking together at home and would like to share

their family’s enthusiasm in a fun environment.

Families are asked to submit their entry with a family photo, recipe suggestions, and a short paragraph on why they think their team is the next great Canadian family of cooks.

Video footage of families cooking together will also be accepted. Families must be available and able to travel to Vancouver between August 27 and September 4, 2011. Travel and accommodation will be provided to successful applicants.
