The Big Family Cooking Showdown - A major new food show that celebrates favourite family recipes

Coming soon to BBC Two, The Big Family Cooking Showdown is a major new competitive food show that celebrates favourite family recipes, meeting a diverse variety of home cooks from across Britain over the 12 part competition.

Presented by Zoe Ball and Nadiya Hussain, the series will delve into kitchens up and down the country, showcasing family food that creates the heart within the home and brings generations together.

In search of Britain’s best family of cooks, judging their efforts are renowned cookery teacher Rosemary Shrager and top Michelin-starred chef Giorgio Locatelli. The two judges will set challenges in both the studio kitchen and home kitchens, whittling down the 16 teams of cooks over eight heats, three semi-finals and one grand final.

In each episode, two families represented by three family members will go head to head, tested by these three challenging rounds:

  • The £10 Challenge - Showcasing the very best the teams can do to feed 4 with a budget of £10, in 1hr 15 minutes.
  • Home Visits Challenge - Both families must cook a main course and a dessert for Rosemary and Giorgio in their own homes in 90 minutes.
  • Impress The Neighbours Challenge - Both families return to the studio for the deciding round, creating a starter and a main course in 2hrs 15 minutes.

In this press pack we meet the family teams to find out about their backgrounds and different dynamics. Let the #CookingShowdown commence!
