Want to be a cook-off star?

Culinary competition

  • Jul. 27, 2011 8:00 p.m.

Does your family bond in the heat of the kitchen?

Do you buy each other utensils for birthday presents?

Do you compete over creating meals as much as you eat them?

Well if you think your family’s got some serious culinary chops, now you’ve got a chance to prove it: Family Cook Off is a new TV series where families go head-to-head, racing against the clock to prepare the better meal, a sort of foodie-family-feud.

Family teams consist of four family members made up of any combination of parents and kids, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews…

Time is of the essence: We’re selecting families now!

Submit your entry via email to cookoff@forcefour.com with a family photo, recipe suggestions and a short paragraph about why you think your family would make a winning team. If you have video footage of your family cooking together, send it in.

Families must be available to travel to Vancouver between August 27 and September 4, 2011. All travel and accommodation will be provided.

For more information, please visit www.foodnetwork.ca/about/castingcall.html

Put your family’s culinary chops to the test at Family Cook Off.
