" I'm seeking a variety of "foodie" families to compete on the show. "Foodie" in this sense means many things, but mostly that the families I'm looking for have members who all regularly cook, enjoy to do it, and can all hold their own in the kitchen. Beyond that, we're considering families of all kinds, whether they specialize in a certain style of cuisine (Italian, Moroccan, Southern, Southwestern, etc.) or technique/restrictive diet (BBQ, Vegan, Molecular Gastronomy, etc.)."

What are the requirements?  Here they are.  

  • Families from every culture, creed and background from anywhere nationwide are welcome. .
  • You must be U.S. Citizens with at least 4 family members over the age of 18.
  • You can't be professional cooks or have worked in food preparation in the past seven years. 

The official press release from ABC asks, "Can Your Family Handle the Heat?"  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. 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.
