Prep your oven mitts and set your timers, ABC’s 'Family Food Fight' is holding auditions for all the food-savvy families in the country and will be coming to a city near you. 

Based on Australia’s hit format and hosted by restaurateur, food maven and New York Times best-selling cookbook author Ayesha Curry, 'Family Food Fight' 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 and take home a $100,000 cash prize. Prepare to watch families from all over the country rustle up magic in the kitchen, serving up authentic family dishes with added doses of drama. It can get really hot in there at times.

Tapping into each family’s uniquely diverse cultural heritage, along with their countless culinary influences, the show will take homestyle cooking to a new level as family recipes rich in tradition and shared over generations are put on display. 

“Cooking is such an important part of my family life, and I can’t wait to find others from across America who share that passion for creating delicious dishes and have great stories to tell,” said Curry.


So whether you enjoy cooking delightful desserts or a fancy feast, incredible Italian food or a great tasting burger, there's a chance for you to show off your culinary skills. If you think your family has what it takes to become America’s No. 1 Food Family, fill in the pre-registration form, cook your favorite dish and head down to an open call. You can find details on how to apply here.

Families must consist of three or more members to participate. All family members planning to compete must be at least 18 years old and should be home cooks and related in some way. Must be a legal US resident; other eligibility requirements apply.
