ABC GREENLIGHTS CULINARY COMPETITION SERIES 'FAMILY FOOD FIGHT,'
HOSTED AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY AYESHA CURRY
ABC announced today that the network has picked up the culinary competition series "Family Food Fight," based on Australia's hit format. Hosted by restaurateur, food maven and NY Times best-selling cookbook author Ayesha Curry, the eight-episode competition series will feature eight families from across the country sharing a common kitchen and a common goal: to claim the title of America's No. 1 Food Family.
Family teams will pull out their best culinary moves in the kitchen, serving up authentic family dishes and drama. Tapping into each family's uniquely diverse cultural heritage, along with their countless culinary influences, "Family Food Fight" will take homestyle cooking to a new level as family recipes rich in tradition and shared over generations are put on display. Rather than five-star restaurant cuisine, the show will focus on relatable, yet aspirational, home-cooked meals, inspiring budding home cooks across the nation to don their aprons and get into the kitchen together.
With a mix of fast-paced cooking fun, heaping helpings of good humor and healthy rivalries, everyone will cook their hearts out as they strive to impress a panel of culinary experts including host and judge, Curry. Despite everyone's delectable dishes, only one family will claim the coveted title of America's No. 1 Food Family and take home the $100,000 prize. An airdate and additional judges to be announced at a later date.
